Cox & McRae CD Release Concert
Oak Bay Rec Centre, Upstairs Lounge, Victoria, 1975 Bee Street , Oak Bay
Two of Canada’s finest. You can see and hear the past and present in their instrumentation, their stories and their songs. A rare treat in an intimate setting. What a long, strange – and delightful – trip it continues to be!With sixty years’ experience and countless performances between them, these veteran award-winning recording artists each with a menagerie of stories to tell, a truckload of strings and things in their arsenal and a preponderance of songs will have you glued to your seat listening to their every word, sometimes laughing, singing along, tapping your toes and humming their melodies for days afterward.
Doug and Linda first shared a stage at the inaugural Stan Rogers Folk Festival, in Canso, NS, resulting in some of the most enjoyable, generous stage time they had ever experienced, so much so that Linda invited him to guest on two of her subsequent recording projects. Doug later invited Linda to be part of his project “Starman: An Acoustic Evening of David Bowie Songs” featuring six of Canada’s finest players. They decided not to wait so long between collaborations and voila their new project was borne.
