COMING SOON: “TiNY ARMY: THE D. HOLMES SESSiONS”

Published by cctadmin on January 22nd, 2013

There is a light at the end of the tunnel as DARREN HOLMES & I begin to wrap up a lot of the recordings for our project ‘TiNY ARMY: THE D. HOLMES SESSiONS’.   Just only a few weeks ago he & I celebrated one year anniversary of this inspired collaboration; as those who have been following can attest, its been a steady process.

I’m most thankful to D for the countless hours he continues to put into these special recordings of ours.  It’s a labour of our mutual love for music, expression & the various talents of the ‘tiny army’ of folks who are involved, in whatever capacity; be it as songwriters, singers, musicians, creative go-to’s – the contributions are amazing & I could’t be more thrilled to see what we have been able to accomplish in a years time.  A lot of fond memories, a lot of coffee.  :-)

While we are nearing the end of a particular chapter in this work, next up we finesse what we have & begin thinking about what we do with this collection, how we go about introducing the world to it & in what fashion.  It will continue to involve our creativity & commitment, but this is something we are inspired to see through, so while I can’t confirm when ‘TiNY ARMY‘ will see the light of day, I do know its coming.  Stay tuned…. & thank you all for your continued support.

Much love, CC

xoxo


CC CHRONiCLES: CC POSES @ NORVA CENTRE / FLiN FLON JAN. 4 2013

My very good friend – & most talented artist CATHERiNE asked me to sit in as a model for NORVA’s artists for a night of sketching.  Was a lot of fun, & I had the easiest job: sit still!  Thanks for the inclusion – & below are some images of some artists work.  For more information on NORVA CENTRE (Northern Visual Arts Centre) please visit www.ffnrc.ca/norva-center.html.

Stop by & check out the beautiful works by local Flin Flon artists – there is always something interesting & creative happening within these walls.

 


CC CHRONiCLES: FiVE EASY PiECES @ NORVA CENTRE / CC, DOUG & ANN @ THE ORANGE TOAD

Published by cctadmin on January 1st, 2013

Had some back-to-back gigs this past week here in Flin Flon; it was a busy Christmas holiday & a lot of fun creatively.  First, FIVE EASY PiECES (minus one easy piece, our friend CHAD PABiANEK, who was sick with a flu) played in front of a crowd of folks @ NORVA CENTRE, the Northern Visual Arts Centre.  Christmas cheer was the goal of the night – & the event was called ‘HOME FOR THE HOLiDAYS: A NiGHT OF MUSIC w/ DOUG & ANN & FRiENDS.  Several folks got up to sing.

Next up, the following morning, I accompanied DOUG & ANN to THE ORANGE TOAD again, to their monthly Saturday gig.  From about 2-4 we played a couple of sets of originals & covers, which again was a lot of fun.  BIG thanks to the folks who helped set us up & for DOUG & ANN for giving me the opportunity to join them.


CC CHRONiCLES: FiVE EASY PiECES @ JOHNNY’S SOCiAL CLUB / December 8th 2012

Published by cctadmin on January 1st, 2013

A few weeks back or so, FiVE EASY PiECES got up in front of a crowd of about 40 people or so, to sing @ JOHNNY’S SOCiAL CLUB.  In fact, we were the first musical act to play in front of a crowd at this joint, & the night was certainly a lot of fun in terms of getting to sing & perform.  Thanks to the folks who organized this & invited us to play; chances are good that we’ll get to play this venue at least once more in the next couple of months.
