Sir Run Run returns from his summer hiatus with a BANG!
On August 29th, Sir Run Run's Tiny Dynasty Presents a double-whammy of acclaimed Western-Canadian roots songsmiths: Sarah Wheeler and Mark Davis.
SARAH WHEELER (Vancouver)
Sarah Wheeler is a dyed-in-the-wool singer songwriter. With the release of her third album, Out of the Woodwork, Sarah’s ambition is to present her songs in a direct and passionate way. Although she has enjoyed collaborating with other musicians, lending her vocals to recordings such as “A Small Wonder” by A.C. Newman of the New Pornographers, and sharing the stage with artists including Dan Mangan, this Vancouver-based roots artist has remained focused on writing and performing her own music with vigilant integrity.
MARK DAVIS (Edmonton)
Sharing the reins with Shuyler Jansen, Mark Davis guided the band Old Reliable through fifteen years and four recordings. He has appeared on no less than twenty different releases.
Mark released his third solo record, Eliminate the Toxins, in June 2011. His most recent 2 CD release - Don't You Think We Should Be Closer? and Mistakes I Meant To Make (2007) was praised as "a two album tour de force" (Exclaim, Penguin Eggs) and "the roots release of the year" (Eye); and was lauded internationally by an abundance of four- and five-star reviews. UNCUT magazine (London, UK) called the dual release "stunning" and Le Cri Du Coyote (France) called the song "By the Time" "one of the most beautiful songs of the century."
Sir Run Run's Tiny Dynasty is an opportunity to hang out in the early evening, drink some nice beer (or your preferred equivalent), socialize , and hear great performances by a wide range of exceptional artists. Every Wednesday, 6pm onwards in the newly transformed and cozy-ified lobby of the Rickshaw Theatre.
