Decking the Halls...


Holly Carr 'in concert' with Scott Macmillan's Big Band

I'm happy to announce that my gal-pal, Holly Carr is on the road with Stuart McLean and the entire Vinyl Cafe crew. They are currently making their way across Canada for Stuart's annual Christmas concert tour. As always, the concerts include amazing music, Stuart's marvellous stories of Dave, Morely and the Vinyl Cafe, and tales (too wonderful not to be true) from the Story Exchange. This year, Stuart asked Holly to join in the festivities as well...

Holly creates vibrant, imaginative, and dreamlike paintings on silk. In the past few years she's teamed up with other artists, (actors, musicians, etc.) brigning her art to audiences in an immediate and intimate way. Great stretches of white silk are set on the stage and back lit. Holly then takes her inspiration from the other performers on stage, her canvas illuminated with her every movement. When Stuart heard of Holly's performances on silk, he couldn't help but ask her along for the tour! Give yourself a treat this holiday season and go see her in action.

Hey Ami - We saw the VC show in Victoria last week -- fantastic. And among the highlights was the on-going, on-stage art project. Drew audible gasps at a number of points in the afternoon...
