About the event
Our end of summer concert is with two strong guitarist singer song-writers, Peter Light and Claire Coupland.
Peter is mature, seasoned, and original. He's a singer/songwriter that has variety in his show. Some songs are just fun, others thought provoking, most have a lot of energy and humour. Above all else he is a musically accessible honest performer with broad appeal. Peter keeps audiences engaged with his energetic music and performance. He simply relishes in making people smile, tap their feet and ponder life a little. He’s released three EPs and recently been getting CBC airplay for his latest full length CD, ‘Just For The Record’. He’s heard too much and loved too long to stick to one style of music. You’ll hear everything from the lively ‘30s to jazzy pop and even a touch a folk thrown into his writing. His Mantra is accessibility and the wide demographic he attracts is testament to that.
Claire Coupland ain’t just another chord strumming folk singer. She has gained respect from her peers as a thoughtful songwriter, a vocal powerhouse, and a compelling and skilled guitarist in an instrument group still dominated by male players. Her songs and performances treat your ears to smooth finger picking, soaring melodic lines and percussive rhythms that never miss a beat. Her voice has been described as having “the vocal power of Susan Tedeschi paired with the clarity and velvety softness of Eva Cassidy”. A west coaster at heart, now a Toronto dwelling singer songwriter, this “quadruple threat” effortlessly pulls her audience into her personal world of love and life experiences, but always with a touch of her “wicked sense of humour” (Rik Emmett). Influenced by folk/rock artists growing up and a degree in Contemporary Music Performance, she blends her own style of intricate folk guitar playing with jazz influenced melodies, progressions and hard hitting arrangements, bringing her own graceful contemporary feel to indie folk music. On a lighter note, Claire loves making her audiences laugh, and may whip out a voice impression or two…
