Once again we are delighted to tell you that the great Howie Hooper is coming in to play again, and this time his sound will be embossed by the pedal steel guitar stylings of Richmond-based Shawn Brown, who has also been in previously and to great acclaim!
With the distinctive low rumblings of a seasoned voice, expressive singer/songwriter Howie Hooper delivers bold, insightful emotionally-charged stories fueled by colourful characters that create captivating, strong and immediate connections. Howie’s songs give a powerful voice to the language of relationships with an honest confidence; capturing a moment in time, leaving you with a lasting memory. Not only writing from the heart, but also from the pain. This Ottawa born songwriter is soon to be releasing a collection of his most compelling songs to date.
Howie has recently played at the Ottawa Grass Roots Folk Festival in April, and June 12th at the Festival Folk et Guitares d’Aylmer.
What a treat to have Howie coming back in to play and sing for us – don’t miss this chance to hear him live, in the flesh, in Stittsville!
The music nights start at 7pm, and as usual there is no charge, but we do have a ‘jar’ for donations to support the musicians, and we hope that you will buy a drink or two (and maybe something tasty to eat!)
See more details at www.gaiajava.ca where you can also review the listing of upcoming music night performers over the next month or so – everything from University students to seasoned professionals who are willing to come and share their talents with you.
Howie Hooper and Shawn Brown play on Friday, July 8 at 7:00pm at Gaia Java on Stittsville Main Street.
