I have had a long deep connection with Concrete Blonde’s song Little Conversations. The song was the impetus for my April 6th, 2018 Blue Dirt Girl Production aptly named Little Conversations: an evening of music and words at the historic Cultch Theatre in East Vancouver.
Whether they’re in-depth talks or brief exchanges on the street, conversations are how we reach out to others, connect the disconnected. Through my blue dirt girl music I examine all of my conversations—from my working and writing sessions with my bandmates, to the regular Friday morning discussions with the group of women artists and mothers, to the spontaneous chats I have with the people I meet throughout the day.
Out of these little conversations came the inspiration for this show. Aiming to break down the barriers between the performers and the audience, my blue dirt girl trio will play an intimate set while the poems of Thinking Ship provides thoughtful response. Audience members are invited to engage with Linda Sanche’s Sob Stories podcast. She will be recording conversations in the Founders’ Lounge before and after the show.
Tickets available now at the Cultch Box Office.
