Live Music

Acoustic Winter  

Nolan and Cameron at Bozzini's for acoustic sets January 29

By Emannuel Asprakis, Bozzinis Rest./Facebook

o looking forward to our first performance of the year - the fabulous Joe Nolan with very special guest Steph Cameron for a wonderful one two punch of folk, pop, & roots music.


Both artists will be performing their own individual acoustic sets of music which is pretty much perfect for Bozzini's Upstairs Lounge (the worlds' most intimate venue) which at heart is basically a little folk club.  Make sure to come hungry as we'll be having our popular Greek Roast Lamb as our dinner feature that night. Tickets are going pretty fast (only 8 left). Won't you join us?

But who is this Joe Nolan & Steph Cameron you ask? (have I ever let you down?)
Check this video out.


When: Thursday Jan. 28 - Doors 6:00 Show 7:30 (note early Start time)

Where: Bozzini's Restaurant - 4-45739 Hocking Ave. Upstairs lounge.

Tickets: Call 604 792 0744 to reserve

Our friend David Gogo had this to say; "Joe is amazing! Chilliwack, go see this show!"



About Joe Nolan

Alberta’s Joe Nolan delivers a taste of what the gutsy, fresh wellspring of talent the legendary coffeehouses of the ’60s must have offered. The transplanted Edmontonian brings a grit and wisdom to his music that is at once confessional, complex, subtle and far beyond his 22 years. He shrugs off the label “old soul” but the depth of his lyrics and the emotion of his instrumental interpretation suggest a worldliness not often found in one barely past legal drinking age.

Listen for shivers of the blues, the darker rumble of rock and roll, and sometimes the shimmy of something close to pop in his gruff, sensitive voice and his complex guitar work. This young troubadour’s self-effacing charm is part of the package; during his live shows, his sincerity and honesty match his musicianship and charisma note for note. Just to make Nolan even more appealing, he doesn’t even take credit for being the source of the material in his haunting compositions, claiming he is “like a radio – like the song comes from somewhere and I send it out.”

About Steph Cameron
Steph Cameron is a classic travelling troubadour, a singer, guitar player and songwriter. Based in BC, Cameron has hitchhiked and busked her way across the country, and this crop of songs, accompanied by acoustic guitar and the occasional harmonica line, bears the patina of travels and troubles, winding roads and leaky tents. From the bluesy "Poppa Won't You Take Me Home" to the Gordon Lightfoot-like "Five Dollars," to the Bob Dylan-esque title track, the album treads well-worn songwriter territory.

While her lyrics pay homage to old folky themes like wolves howling, wild roses, prison and having someone "go my bail," she weaves these into songs about the here and now. Cameron's fingerpicked guitar chops are solid, her lines spare, with warm, clear tone. At first listen, her sweet, young voice sometimes sounds out of its depth tackling these themes, but then again, why do we expect a grizzled, tired voice to deliver folk songs anyway? An impressive debut album, Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady delights from start to finish. Steph Cameron is the real deal
