The Cultch Launches New, Unconventional ‘Soft Cedar’ Monthly Concert Series

The new artist-friendly music program, which continues on March 24th, aims to focus on performance by removing financial and technical restraints for participating artists.

The Cultch Launches New, Unconventional ‘Soft Cedar’ Monthly Concert Series

The Cultch has a new series of unconventional gigs that has us stoked about getting our musical fix this spring. The Soft Cedar program kicked off at the beginning of February with Khari Wendell McClelland playing the first of four scheduled concerts. Next up is Hannah Epperson, who will be performing at the York Theatre on March 24th, followed by Andrew Lee’s musical project Holy Hum on April 21st. Lightning Dust (Amber Weber and Joshua Wells of Black Mountain) rounds out the calendar of events on June 2nd.

Besides the line-up of awesomeness filling the gaps of the musical spectrum (from Epperson’s violin-driven, electronic folk sounds to Lightning Dust’s epic spatial rock and Lee’s spare yet heart wrenching balladry), what’s truly exciting about Soft Cedar is its artist-friendly objective. Recognizing how stifling the lack of financial and technical accessibility can be on artists, The Cultch has given all of the series’ participants full use of their resources so that they can focus on what’s actually most important: the performance. Vancouver music-loving audiences also benefit from this scheme since all of the shows are intimate, taking place at either the 200-seat Historic Theatre or the 350-seat newly renovated York Theatre. Combined with the fact that ticket prices are only $20 each, we suspect that seats for all three remaining shows will be snatched up pretty damn quickly. Treat yourself and show your support by snagging yours here.
