Sounds from the Valley: Music and Poetry

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Snow Valley Ski Club

Description

Head down to Edmonton's Snow Valley Ski Club to take in FREE concert with music and poetry. Listen to artists from EPL's Capital City Records and Capital City Press as they share their work at the bottom of the ski hill in the beautiful Rainbow Valley. Free of charge, we'll be collecting non-perishable food items for the Edmonton Food Bank.

Food & Beverage options at Creekside Eats are available during the concert.

NOTE: Due to the very high popularity of the event this year, we suggest those who are able to bring their own lawn chairs to do so to ensure ample seating for everyone. If you don’t have a lawn chair, that is totally okay – we can absolutely make it work!

Music from Capital City Records Artist, Sticks and Stone Percussion

Sticks and Stone Percussion will take you on a joyful journey with the “grand piano of xylophones”. The group was born out of experiments by Stephen Stone at the University of Alberta, Grant MacEwan, freelance performances and busking. Three people on one marimba (or, two people on one marimba, with the third person on drum set) developed from this, allowing for a fun concept to play any type of music for any audience. The group performs for every demographic, from 5 years old to 95, global to local, punk and polite. They find that most-often upbeat pop-music allows for the broadest audience connection.
