Massey Theatre Presents Stephen Fearing with Oh SusannaThrough a life of many relocations and countless months on the road performing, Fearing has become a gifted storyteller and true musical nomad with the ability to enthral audiences displaying his virtuosic guitar artistry.

Fearing is blessed with three distinct personalities as a performer. There’s his solo career, which has earned him five Juno Award nominations and one wins, in addition to his successful career with Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, his Juno Award-winning super group with Colin Linden and Tom Wilson, and Fearing & White, the duo he formed with U.K. singer-songwriter Andy White. Fearing has managed to stay relevant by pursuing song topics at every opportunity.

Over the course of 30 highly creative years, Fearing has released nine albums under his own name, seven with B&RK, and two with F&W. He has been nominated for numerous awards and received two Juno’s, a Canadian Folk Music Award and a West Coast Music Award.

Oh Susanna, the stage name of singer/songwriter Suzie Ungerleider, a Canadian alt-country performer with a taste for stark, haunting balladry joins Fearing and together they create a captivating evening of song you don’t want to miss.

Sommelier Jesse Walters will be working together with Mr. Kawamura to create bespoke sake and natural wine pairings for the dinner.

Talking of their time in Japan, Chef Andrea states: “It was our first night in Tokyo and we happened upon Kantera. We had the most amazing dining experience, the yuba and uni were transcendent, and the chilled soba noodles in sesame were like nothing we had ever tasted. Mr. Kawamura is a natural wine enthusiast and had some incredible locally made wines for us to try. Simply put, Kantera was one of the best dining experiences we had in the country.”

A big book store (and more) is returning to Robson Street this fall! Indigo, the world’s first booklovers cultural department store, is opening a new 29,000 square foot flagship location on Robson Street in downtown Vancouver, to open in the Fall 2018.

Indigo Opening on Robson Street

Located at 1033 Robson Street (where Forever 21 currently sits, and is leaving) the new two-level space will reflect Indigo‘s full new concept. The new store will have a warm and inviting aesthetic inspired by the city. Customers will explore the best book selection, exclusive Indigo designed lifestyle products, and an outstanding IndigoKids department combining books, STEM products and the best in creative play. The store will also have a full café and community space for special events.

From today’s press release:

“Indigo, which also operates the Chapters brand, has had a long and valued relationship with booklovers in downtown Vancouver,” said Heather Reisman, Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover. “When we made the decision to leave our well-loved Robson street Chapters store, we promised our customers that as soon as we could, we would be back. We are so very excited to reconnect with this community who are among the best and most passionate readers in the country.”

Customers are invited to use the hashtag #MyIndigoIdeas on social media to share their thoughts and ideas for the new store. More details will come in the following months. I would also recommend following @RobsonStreet on social media for more updates.
