Eva Tree to open Up Close and Intimate Series at Vallican Whole

This evening will feature an exceptional performance by Eva Tree and Friends.

On Saturday, Feb. 10 at 7 p.m., the Vallican Whole Community Centre will host the first presentation in the third season of its Up Close & Intimate Series (UCI), heading up what is arguably the strongest line-up yet.

This evening will feature an exceptional performance by Eva Tree and Friends.

They will be at the musical element in Le Cabaret Intime, always the season’s opener — an oh-so-glamorous evening of fine wines, attentive service and delectable desserts.

Eva Tree is one of our homegrown talents, with deep Kootenay roots. Her musical career began at the Selkirk Music School, followed by a musical voyage around the world before returning to her home.

Eva combines Folk Americana, Soulful Roots and Appalachian influences to weave a sound that is unique and unmistakably her own.

She has released two full-length albums on her own publishing label, Treacle Tree, and is currently working on her third, Holding Rain, co-produced by her husband, musician Bill Dickerson.

Eva’s storytelling is both keen and warm-hearted, leavening even the most sorrowful tales with a touch of hopefulness and grace. Her vocal delivery creates a complexity and sweetness of sound meeting right at the crossroads where heartfelt yearning meets joyful. She paints for the listener a soundscape of colour and mood, evocative and compelling with running themes of fire, ponies, snow, love and the strengths and frailties of the human heart.

Eva will be playing with her husband, Bill Dickerson, with his clean inventive guitar, enhanced by Hal Rezansoff’s warm upright bass tones and Toiyna Sammartino’s crystal clear vocal harmonies.

The next UCI series event is March 10 when Martina Avis and Marya Folinsbee, two more talented and popular locals, will premiere Be/Longing, their own very personal play exploring the lives of Slocan Valley women past and present.

On Saturday, April 28, the Vallican Whole is privileged to present Juno-nominated artist, Maria Dunn, in the Maria Dunn Duo, along with violinist Shannon Johnson. Throughout her six albums, her stirring songs show a deep social awareness and compassion for the lives of ordinary people.

Tickets for the Up Close and Intimate series are $50 for all three performances and can be purchased at www.vallicanwhole.com and at Emery’s Herbals.

The Vallican Whole is located at 3762 Little Slocan South Rd. It can be reached by following the signs at the Passmore turnoff on Highway 6. For more information email info@vallicanwhole.com or message them through their Facebook page, FB/TheWhole.
