FRIDAY DECEMBER 1.      Cori Brewster and Christie Simmons

                                         plus openers Jim Atkinson & Rick Wedel


The Rocky is pleased to welcome both Cori Brewster and Christie Simmons to our stage for the next club. Each will perform one set. Christie will be accompanied by Rob McConnell on bass and other string things. Cori will be accompanied by Helen and Steve Goodchild, and will be joined by Christie too...



“Brewster has a sweet voice of positivity that lends itself well to the self-penned tracks of life, love, time and discovery. Musically, the recording is solid to the core... Brewster professes in the liner notes to be heading out on the road to discover corners of Canada she has yet to experience.”

 

— Chris Martin - Penguin Eggs



Christie sings, plays whistles, flute and guitar. She's often seen performing with the group My Son Ted, though she enjoys performing solo now and then as well. She's a former highland piper, which she took up ostensibly to offset her sister's interest in opera! A lover of all manner of folk roots music, Christie has been particularly influenced by the music of Gillian Welch. In 2010, Christie released Winnie's Song, her first CD of original songs.
