Bassist Dave Scanlan brings songs to Silverton

Nelson-based Dave Scanlan has played bass with a variety of bands throughout the Kootenays.

Nelson-based Dave Scanlan has played bass with a variety of bands throughout the Kootenays since graduating from the music program at David Thompson University Centre in the early 1980s.

His songwriting has often drawn comparisons to John Prine, Loudon Wainwright III, and American southwest writers such as Robert Earl Keen.

This is a great opportunity to see and hear some of the great talent that is coming out of Nelson and the well-respected Selkirk College Professional Music Program there.

Dave, who also sings and plays acoustic guitar, will be backed by Selkirk music prof Darren Mahe on acoustic lead guitar, slide, and dobro. He and Dave are both members of the Nelson-based band “Roxy.”

Stephanie Darychuk, originally from Creston and a former Selkirk music student, plays upright bass in this band.

The band includes two percussionists: the legendary Marvin Walker on snare, hand drums, and background vocals, and local favorite Aiko Jackson on djembe, shakers, and vocals. This concert will be recorded live!

 

Cost: $5-10, sliding scale. Tickets at the door. For more information contact bookings@silvertongallery.ca
