Selina Martin to perform at Canoes & Brews

Canadian musicians Selina Martin and Tom Holliston are coming to Kimberley on Saturday, June 23, 2018. The duo will be performing at Canoes & Brews/Broken Paddle at 9p.m..

Martin has been a part of the Toronto music scene for almost two decades, releasing four internationally acclaimed solo albums and performing on countless other stages and recordings with her peers.

Martin says she is an experimenter, her musical styles is derived from a number of influences.

“I’ve been intrigued by France for a long time and I am very excited to allow inspiration from the culture there,” she said of making France her home.

In terms of what is bringing her to Kimberley, Martin explained that a friend of hers who resides in Kimberley encouraged her to play in “beautiful BC”.

Sharing the stage with Martin is Tom Holliston, who is best known for his 16 years touring and recording with the west-coast Canadian band Nomeansno. Holliston’s solo work (under the name Show Business Giants) generally consists of alternative rock songs, characterized by musical variance with playful and obscure pop culture themes. On stage he displays a singular blend of charm, humour, and social commentary.

Their stop in Kimberley is part of their tour across BC, where they will also be playing in Nanaimo, Duncan, Robert’s Creek, Vancouver, Nelson, Salmo, and Osoyoos. Following their BC tour, they will be headed to Europe to tour throughout Germany, France, and Belgium.
