SongBird North - Where Writers Sing and Tell (Formerly "Bluebird North"!)
The Songwriters Association of Canada is celebrating it's 23rd year of running Bluebird North in Vancouver. This popular bi-monthly concert series celebrates songwriting in a warm, engaging theatre setting. Due to copyright issues the name had to be changed to SongBird North.
April's show features:

The songwriters featured in the upcoming edition of SongBird North hail from all corners of the North America. Variety is par for the course with Vancouvers longest-running songwriters showcase, where listeners can expect to discover talented artists who are new to them, and hear familiar voices in a different way. Its a unique live music experience: a warm, unplugged vibe, varied and inspiring performances, great stories, and of course, superlative song-writing

BACKGROUND: Since 1995, SongBird North (formerly Bluebird North) has been a mainstay in Vancouver for songwriters from across the continent, as a bi-monthly showcase that features four talented singer/songwriters of widely varying styles, on stage together, taking turns playing their own original songs and sharing stories with one another and the audience about their work. The series has toured nationally, and has established itself in several other Canadian cities. Vancouver remains its longest-standing host city. www.songwriters.ca
