Vinyl Café regular Reid Jamieson doesn’t want your Valentine’s to suck. Join Vancouver’s sweetest set of vocal chords as he sings the bitter and the sweet, while raising funds for the Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter. Reid booked us all an early afternoon show - the day after Vday - to ensure parents could find a sitter, and all those who work in the service industry (much like he does) could have a romantic moment too. Singles and sad sacks welcome, chocolate for everyone!
Reid has recorded with Cowboy Junkies, Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas), Sarah Harmer and various members of Blue Rodeo. Reid can often be found performing as an entertaining duo with his saucy wife and songwriting partner Carolyn Mill. Along with the Lennon win, this creative couple wrote their way into the Vancouver Folk Music Festival by winning 1st prize in the Pickin' a Folk Star Contest. They just released their first album singing together titled Juniper’s Kitchen - it’s a little Johnny & June meets Fleetwood Mac - and all about the songs. Known for his compelling covers of everything from The Everly Brothers to Madonna, Reid just released his much anticipated collection - The Presley Sessions Revisited – A musical love letter to the greats of the 50s era, including songs made popular by Elvis, Roy Orbison, The Platters and The Flamingos.
They're back now and ready to celebrate the 14th anniversary of their first kiss (that first one was on stage if so it seems fitting) with a benefit for the local women's shelter. Join us for a little Afternoon Delight at The Cottage Bistro...
Early show. 2 sets.
