Vancouver Island Mayworks presents the annual Women and Work evening on Thursday, May 3rd at 7:00 p.m. at Zocalo's. The evening begins with the fabulous Ms. Adventures, consisting of Joanna Finch, Judy Norbury, Linda Safford and Hazel Lennox.
Combining satire and song, politics and personal stories, the Ms. Adventures are sure to have the audience in stitches. The four Ms.'s have a long history of performing together and are Comox Valley favourites.
The second performance of the evening features Mary Murphy, who is a superb singer and a talented writer. A review in Performing Songwriter Magazine states, "Blessed with a honeyed crystalline voice, Mary fuses traditional, original and contemporary Irish folk with occasional rootsy North Americana to create a synthesis that uplifts both genres." Mary has performed across North America and Europe and we are very lucky that she makes her home in the Comox Valley.
The last performance will be by Tracy Myers of Nanaimo, who has been performing for live audiences for over 20 years and performed spoken
word solo for the first time in 1993. It was a powerful experience for her and since then, her fiery brand of feminist musings and commentary on a world gone mad has been performed at venues up and down Vancouver Island. Tracy is also a drummer/percussionist and her musical studies include two years at the jazz program in Nanaimo, B.C. as well as travels to West Africa, Cuba and Brazil to explore rhythm. Tracy brought the audience to their feet at last year's Women and Work evening.
This is a free event, sponsored by Vancouver Island Mayworks and Zocalo's. For more information, please call 250-334-3624.
