A new song by Brian Tate, Make Us Free, is the inspiration for our upcoming performance. With all the strife and heartache in today’s world, we need songs like this one that urge us to “shake off the chains that bind us, break down the walls that divide us, bring out the love inside us, and make us free.”

You will be treated to our usual blend of gospel, spiritual, pop, civil rights, African and Afro-Cuban songs, and for the first time, we will be performing a First Nations song written by multi-award winning composer Sandy Scofield, a M├ętis from the Saulteaux and Cree Nations. We were especially appreciative that Sandy took time out of her busy schedule to come to the island to teach us her song as well as some of the traditions of First Nations music.

For the opening act, we are pleased to present Sweet SantaFe, a charming husband and wife duo currently living in Courtenay. Christine Baxter is a songwriter from Alberta whose voice conveys a level of authenticity while floating on the mystical tones of her soprano voice; Michel Rivero Mordoch is a Cuban troubadour, teacher and songwriter who has an effortless voice that transitions from deep warm tones to sweet tenor notes that resonate with any audience. Together, their songs are authentic, and their rhythmic blends are rich, giving their audiences a fresh and infectious experience that the world is so in need of. These two writers are following their truth, with an intrinsic need to create connection wherever they are.

We hope to see you there! You won’t want to miss it!
