Tickets are now available for our September 10 presentation of Beverly Glenn-Copeland with Indigo Rising and @FOONYAPphoto at @KingEddyYYC! Link in bio.

A classically-trained musician, Beverly Glenn-Copeland has been writing, recording and performing music for over 40 years, including a large body of music for adults, music for film, six albums of his own songs (from folky jazz in the vein of Joni Mitchell to soulful electronic music), and four musicals for children.

Glenn also has a longstanding career writing music for children’s TV that includes credits on shows such as Mr. Dressup—where he spent 25 years as a recurring character—as well as Sesame Street and Shining Time Station.

His 1986 album, Keyboard Fantasies, a mixture of digital new age and (accidentally) early experimental Detroit techno, recorded using a Yamaha DX7 and Roland TR-707 and originally released on cassette tape, was reissued in 2016 as a result of his following with collectors and music heads.

After a 20 year absence from the concert stage, Glenn has resumed performing his sprawling, transformative catalogue of music with his new band, Indigo Rising.

Calgary violinist and folk-electronic artist FOONYAP will open the night.

Just announced! Sled Island and @NMC_Canada are proud to present pianist and composer @jeanmichelblais at Studio Bell on Thursday, October 4 at 7:00pm.

DANS MA MAIN, his sophomore release, is an expansive album of post-classical piano with strands of electronic detail. Blending his conservatory skill and precise pop sensibility with synthetic accompaniment, Blais creates unique environments where the piano’s intimacy can be subtly disrupted at any time.

Get tickets now at NMC.ca/Whats-On!
