Czandra & Darryl Whetter

Darryl and SandraOn Wednesday 9 September, poets Darryl Whetter from Advocate Harbour, NS and Czandra (Sandra Stephenson) from Rigaud, QC will be at Main & Station’s Nonesuch Café to read and perform their work.  The evening will begin at 7:30pm.

Czandra is an eclectic poet and essayist of many styles and a single voice.  Her poems range from playful and melodious to terse and formal. Her subjects cover social commentary, language, the everyday and the unique.  Her voice has been acclaimed by listeners who find an arresting “je ne sais quoi” in the way Czandra reads.
Czandra has a history of organizing poetry events, editing books for other people and Radish coverproviding venues for poets to read, work, protest and learn.  She is a regular reader at Twigs & Leaves near Montreal, has many poems in various publications (magazines and anthologies) in seven provinces, the US and New Zealand.  Recordings of her readings are archived in several places. Currently one poem is part of an exhibit at a BC University because it helped save a 27-acre forest, and another is displayed in a poem garden in Kingston Ontario.  Her four chapbooks are as different from each other as sea creatures.  Nova Scotia’s Antigonish Review was Czandra’s first Canadian publisher.

Prairie Songstress Belle Plaine Announces

Crustacean Elation Maritimes Tour

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – May 22 2015 (Regina, SK) – Belle Plaine and her longtime collaborators Jeremy Sauer and Elizabeth Curry will take their classic country, swing and folk music performance on the road at the end of May for a month-long, 22-show tour to urban and rural communities in the Maritimes. The trio toured parts of the region last year and were enamored with the people, the culture, and the crustaceans. They want to return to play music, share the Saskatchewan culture and of course to eat a lot of fresh in-season lobster and mussels. Now they are excited to announce their tour, including their first-time visit to New Brunswick. The show is for audiences who enjoy artists such as Emmylou Harris, Patsy Cline, Jill Barber & Rose Cousins.

“Why do I love the Maritimes? It’s the people. They’re lovely. There’s some innate understanding between prairie and maritime folk. It’s a strange connection that I can’t put my finger on. I don’t know that I need to comprehend it, I just love that I feel it.” – Belle Plaine
