female singer songwriter - on stage - hornby island

kim june johnson – in concert – hornby island

there are a lot of perks to living on hornby. A lot. And one of the many is the number of incredibly talented musicians who either live & work here or travel here to give concerts. It’s not unusual (nor an exaggeration) to be in our small, community-built community hall listening to world class musicians. Some come as part of the fantastic hornby festival, some come for the hornby island blues festival, some through the celtic festival, others through personal connections. Year round there are concerts at the hall, joe king park & intimate house concerts at a few homes around the island. And kim june johnson firmly holds her own alongside all that talent. She was awarded Vocalist of the Year at the 2015 Vancouver Island Music Awards & her gorgeous album ‘Canvas and Clay’ was nominated for Album of the Year. Her live shows beautifully combine song, storytelling and poetry.

on this particular evening, she was backed-up by the uber talented marc atkinson – one of Canada’s finest JUNO-nominated, award-winning musicians – & scott white – a multi faceted bassist & music therapist splitting his time & talent between berlin, germany & the west coast of bc. My only wish is that there was a sound track to this post. We were spell bound by their collective talent & creative collaboration. For the soundtrack, you’ll have to check out their respective websites. And for now, enjoy a visual journey through the soundscape…
