Two of BC’s most beloved artists join forces for a double bill of spirit, vitality and groove. Legendary singer Ann Mortifee takes us on a magical adventure weaving stories and songs from seven decades of her life which began in South Africa and has led her around the globe. An internationally renowned performer of spellbinding power, Ann enthralls and inspires with her rich, four octave voice, dramatic presence and soul-stirring music. Fearlessly creative and evocative, her career as performer, composer, author and community activist has spanned seven decades and continents. In this rare concert appearance, she will be accompanied by a trio of brilliant musicians: Ed Henderson (guitar), Finn Manniche (cello) and Miles Black (keyboards).


Rick Scott is his own genre, an award winning singer/songwriter and three time Juno nominee. Since pioneering BC rogue folk with Pied Pumkin, over 40 years he has released 19 albums and performed in nine countries. Last year he joined forces with young Nanaimo keyboardist Nico Rhodes to form Roots & Grooves, a musical smorgasbord of folk, jazz and blues
