The Season Of Giving

 

In the wake of Black Friday it seems like a good time to think about things that may have more lasting value. It is the season where we are encouraged to celebrate our connections to friends and family, a time where perhaps we can put people before presents. We believe that caring for your community also means caring about people who are not on your Facebook feed. To this end we have been a strong supporter of Dixon Hall Neighbourhood Services for many years. It is a way to put our values into action.

Dixon Hall Neighbourhood Services has been making a big difference in our neighbourhood since 1929. Through their homeless shelters, meals on wheels, programs for children & youth, seniors, immigrants & newcomers, employment services and music school they touch the lives of thousands of our community’s most vulnerable residents.

So, in addition to sharing good cheer with your loved ones, perhaps you will consider contributing to give a hand up in your community.

TC Folkpunk

With James Clark Thursday December 18, 9:00 PM

 

This is a "Pay What You Can" event

Timothy Cameron was given a copy of the Beatles album "Twist And Shout" when he was four years old, and decided that being a Beatle would be a good job to have when he grew up. Unfortunately, they weren't hiring. Instead, he waited a few years, then began playing in bars and pubs at the age of 17, by which time he was tall enough to convincingly "exaggerate" about his age. Somewhere in there he found time to add some Clash, Bob Dylan, Billy Bragg and Green Day albums to his collection, and proceeded to absorb them into his musical DNA.

Since then, Timothy has played literally thousands of gigs, and within the past few years released three independent CDs, all of which received positive reviews and airplay in Canada and abroad. In 2007, Timothy discovered that one of his songs, American Dream, had become part of the curriculum in a high school class in Germany which was studying the recent impact of American culture on the outside world. Shortly thereafter, he changed his stage moniker to T.C. Folkpunk, a decision which was brought on by the proliferation of other musicians performing under the names Tim Cameron or Timothy Cameron (and his annoyance at getting their email).

In 2010, T.C. was invited to take part in The International Pop Overthrow festival in Liverpool, England, which he happily accepted. His shows included two appearances on stage at the legendary Cavern Club. He still hasn't gotten over it.
