Torn From The Pages

“What happens when some of Canada’s leading singers and songwriters are inspired to compose and perform original songs from a recent work of fiction? You experience a once in a lifetime, late-night celebration of sound and story.Torn from the Pages is the brainchild of singer-songwriter-bestselling author, Dave Bidini, and in this Vancouver rendition of a Toronto tradition Timothy Taylor’s The Blue Light Project is the inspiration. From songs to essays, new narratives to tone poems, Bidini and his outstanding line-up of musicians and writers will delight with eight new pieces provoked by Taylor’s epic work of terrorism, media and sport.”

With Authors: Dave Bidini, Grant Lawrence, Zsuzsi Gartner, Colin Browne, Timothy Taylor and Musicians: Selina Martin, Veda Hille, Geoff Berner, Brendan McLeod, Karyn Ellis.
