Tea à Tempo – BackStage – Marilyn Walker, Adam Huber & Michael Aronoff – Irish, Newfoundland, Folk & Gospel – July 17, 2019 @ 2:10 PM

Wednesday, July 17, 2019 - 2:00pm

Playing for the first time at Tea à Tempo on Wednesday, July 17, 2019 is the lively local group of musicians known as BackStage whose focus is Irish, Newfoundland, Folk and Gospel music.
Adam Huber, Michael Aronoff, and Marilyn Walker play together with Edgar Hann (button accordion player) who is currently at home in Newfoundland for the summer to work on his house. They call themselves BackStage after the BackStage Studio that Edgar and Marilyn built for performances – house concerts, drumming workshops, and other classes – on their property in the South End. Michael, Adam and others have played with them there and at the Mahon Hall Homage Concert in April.
Marilyn records and performs as Em Walker. She is also an artist and a retired University Professor of Anthropology who has given workshops in shamanism, consciousness studies, ethnobotany, drumming and many other topics over the years. Often mistaken, especially in the Maritimes, for Joni Mitchell and Emmy Lou Harris, she’ll be contributing her mother drum and Newfoundland ugly stick along with guitar and lead vocals (not all at the same time!). Marilyn and Edgar have recorded four CDs which include traditional Irish / Newfoundland music and originals. Some of these tracks will be played by Marilyn, Adam, and Michael at Tea à Tempo.
Adam Huber is a musician, author, carpenter / inventor, and energy healer (including with crystal bowls). He plays with many other Salt Spring musicians – his credentials might go into the stratosphere if they know that he once saw B.B. King leaning against a lamppost in Portland. Adam plays guitar and harmonica and does vocals.
Michael Aronoff is a long-time Salt Spring Island musician who wears many hats – raconteur, artist, tango dancer – and knows some good jokes. He plays bass but also mandolin, mandola, and drum, and sings awesome harmonies. He also plays with other groups including the Kaizenjammers.
Concert begins at 2:10 pm. All donations are directed towards the honoraria of musicians and the running of the series.
Tea and Treats, for $3.00, are provided by the Anglican Caterers immediately following the concert.
So bring a friend or visitor to the Island, enjoy some lovely Irish, Newfoundland, Folk and Gospel tunes, and then have a delicious treat afterwards.
Food, friends, and music! What more could you ask for? Hope to see you there.
