The Qualicum Acoustic Café is presenting West-Coast troubadour Peter Prince on Dec. 2.
The multi talented musician and filmmaker from Saltspring Island will be playing guitar and singing songs from his new CD, Pacific Day.
During the past 25 years, Prince has taken his musician’s soul and filmmaker’s eye from Central America to the South Pacific, from Haida Gwaii to the Himalayas and beyond. His clear vocals rest on melodies that often involve the global influence of his life and travels but his greatest inspiration is rooted close to home.
He is a prolific songwriter and a singer and guitarist inspired by the natural beauty and culture of our West-Coast.
The folk/world sounds of his first album, Sea of Dreams is the perennial favourite of many visitors to Salt Spring Island, where Prince makes his home and regularly performs. It explores his connection to the spirit of First Nations people and the islands of B.C. On Roaring From the Soul of A Lion, he puts his poetry to music that celebrates the bumpy road of life and love, while merging elements of folk and rock. Whispering Rain is an acoustic feast for the ears as the tunes flow from his guitar, harmonica and vocals. Pacific Day is Peter’s latest album and features 13 new songs from his well traveled pen.
Prior to Prince’s performance on the Rotary House stage in Qualicum Beach there will be the open stage. Anyone who would like a 10 minute slot on the open stage can email the hosts at: email@example.com.
The Acoustic Cafe happens on the first Friday of the month. Admission to the Cafe is $5, the doors open at 7 p.m. and the open stage begins at 7:30.
Tickets are available at the Vintage Candy Shop in Qualicum Beach.
