Playing at Smoke ‘N Water in Nanoose Bay

North Easton will be performing at Smoke ’N Water on Nov. 26

Singer-songwriter North Easton has been touring for two decades with bands Garrity and My Favourite Tragedy and most recently as a solo artist.

Easton will be performing at Smoke ’N Water (1600 Strougler Rd., Nanoose Bay) on Nov. 26 at 7 p.m.

It’s as a solo artist that Easton said he has discovered the intimacy and genuine connections that are created by playing house concerts.

“House concerts are an intimate atmosphere to share stories and perform to a crowd that is there for that purpose,” Easton said.  “The audience at a house concert is particularly respectful and they feel comfortable because they’re at a friend’s house in a gathering where they can sit on a couch and not feel like they have to order a $7-beer.”

Easton said his inspiration for house concerts came from his mother who wasn’t a performing artist, but she would invite friends over to play guitar and sing at the kitchen table.

“It’s hard to beat the intimacy of a gathering in the comfort of someone’s home.”
