The event creator says

Robin Holcomb + Peggy Lee have collaborated since 2006 on a variety of projects. Both distinctive composers and fierce improvisers, they have been featured performers at the Vancouver Jazz Festival and the PuSH Festival. The duo is currently recording their multifaceted repertoire: compositions extended by improvisation, songs and settings of poetry of Nazim Hikmet.

Robin Holcomb performs internationally and creates vocal and instrumental music for ensembles of all sizes, film, dance and theater. Her music can be heard on Nonesuch, Tzadik, Songlines and New World records. “Staggeringly beautiful.” (NY Times) “Achingly painful and suddenly tender, Robin Holcomb’s songs mirror a beguiling, bewildering world.” (Rolling Stone) “Robin Holcomb is haunted….not that she isn’t an original.” (Georgia Straight)

Peggy Lee leads The Peggy Lee Band, Film in Music, Waxwing (with Tony Wilson and Jon Bentley) and Beautiful Tool (with Mary Margaret O’Hara). She has long been a member of Talking Pictures, The Vancouver Opera Orchestra, Standing Wave and the New Orchestra Workshop.

Honey Noble, led by composer and vocalist Katie Jacobson features Luke Bergman, Evan Woodle, Anna Freedman, Inge Chiles and Ivan Arteaga. Quiet melodies and clear vocals accentuate the poetic quality of contemplative and honest lyrics - stories of memories we wish we had, dreams that haunt our waking lives, and a conflicted life that marries joy and pain almost indistinguishably.
