The Al Purdy Songbook
$25 Advance / $30 Door *

A celebration of our most famous poet, featuring a rare screening of the 2015 feature documentary Al Purdy Was Here, as well as live performances from two (2) of the artists featured in the film: Doug Paisley and Snowblink.

Doug Paisley
Doug Paisley is a Canadian alternative country singer and songwriter with record label No Quarter Records. He was born in Toronto. Paisley's "What About Us?" was featured in Mojo magazine as part of a complimentary CD entitled New Harvest. Paisley has previously toured with Bonnie Prince Billy under the name Dark Hand and Lamplight with artist Shary Boyle. Boyle would illuminate her art in the background while Paisley played the guitar and sang his songs. The pairing received recognition when they were selected to showcase at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in 2008. Doug performed for ten years alongside Chuck Erlichman as a duo entitled Russian Literature and as a tribute act entitled Stanley Brothers.

Paisley's 2010 release, Constant Companion, received major accolades through reviews in major publications such as The New Yorker and Spin. His 2014 album, Strong Feelings, featured guest appearances by Mary Margaret O'Hara and Garth Hudson. It again received rave reviews from Rolling Stone and Pitchfork.

His latest album, Starter Home, will be available on November 3 for the world to hear. It was also in this year that he contributed the sing "Transient" to album we are here to celebrate this evening, The Al Purdy Songbook.
