One of the simpler but important pleasures that COVID-19 has taken from us is the ability to gather with new friends and enjoy live music. Locals Lounge and CreativeMornings/Vancouver are joining forces to recreate that experience online. Join host and curator Ian Cromwell as he pulls back the virtual curtain and invites you to see the city through the eyes of its music scene.
This evening’s guest will be interdisciplinary artist, painter, songwriter, and sidewalk chalk revolutionary Corrina Keeling. Expect an evening thought-provoking messages and heartstring-tugging music from Corrina and maybe some surprise guests.
Multidisciplinary artist Corrina Keeling hopes her performances can become containers for her audiences to celebrate, grieve, heal, and imagine what’s possible. She is a sophisticated songwriter and a rhythmic powerhouse, using music as medicine for complex times, and is humbled and delighted to be able to follow creativity as an act of service around the world world while sharing stages with artists including Feist, The Barenaked Ladies, Ta’Kaiya Blaney, Buckman Coe, Tonye, Nahko Bear, and Neil Young.
Each performance of her most recent work ‘Bodies of Water’ builds a unique multidisciplinary world full of questions about where we’ve been: origin stories, ancestry, place, home, and belonging. Anything but ordinary folk, her sophisticated rhythms are rooted and driving, and are complimented with rich and mystical musical contributions from her queer, femme, and cultural community. Whether at a concert, a conference, or a campfire, her performances are alive with gratitude and presence, and are always vulnerable, participatory, and deeply passionate experiences.
