Roy Forbes in Concert

April 6 @ 2:30 am - 4:30 am

$30 – $35

Join Roy Forbes to celebrate the release of his latest and long-awaited disc, Edge of Blue. The new songs on the recording all grew from Roy and his Gurian guitar – and that’s how you’ll hear them at this special concert event: one guy, one guitar.

Roy Forbes is one of Canada’s best known and best loved songwriters and performing artists. He’s been at it for almost fifty years and has picked up some tokens of appreciation from his peers. There is a street named after him in his hometown of Dawson Creek in northern B.C., and a star on Vancouver’s Granville Street where the names of the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame members are enshrined. Mainly, and more importantly, Roy is firmly etched in the minds of thousands, tens of thousands, of music lovers across the country.

A new Roy Forbes recording is a rare occurrence. Roy doesn’t pop ‘em out every year or so. He takes his time, working slowly to get it right. Edge of Blue may just be the Vancouver singer-songwriter’s best yet – a summation by an artist who has been doing this for a long time. On this album both Roy’s roots and routes are showing; the influences he’s absorbed and where he’s been. Edge of Blue is 10 songs full of wisdom, confessions, vulnerability, sensuality, self- reflection and celebration. More of a soul music album than country or folk; it has nothing to do with what is ‘hip’ and ‘happening’ in the mainstream music business. Just memorable words, compelling compositions, spare production and a voice every bit as original as when the Kid Full of Dreams first came to town almost five decades ago – pure Roy Forbes.
