Here we go, a-Carolan

October 15th, 2019

Christ Church Cathedral has invited jazz guitar great Henry Young, poet Trevor Carolan and Marlowe Ferris to provide a concert reading & book launch on Sunday, Oct. 27.

The multi-faceted Carolan will read from his new poetry collection from In Formless Circumstance: Poems from the Road and Home (Ekstasis Editions $23.95).

Henry Young will be playing his vintage Gibson guitar and Marlowe Ferris will be singing and playing alongside.

It’s a by-donation event. Everyone is welcome, of all ages.

Christ Church Cathedral is right across the street from the Hotel Vancouver in Vancouver. The kid-friendly venue includes beautiful stained glass windows and Susan Point’s First Nations mural.

Doors open at 2:30 pm. It’s a one-hour show from 3 to 4.
