Squamish Historical Society presents: Corinne Lonsdale
Squamish Fifty Years of Change and Challenges

Long-time Squamish resident Corinne Lonsdale is the first person to receive the District of Squamish's prestigious "Freedom of the Municipality" award for her tireless work on behalf of the community and for her nearly 30 years in civic office, both as a councillor and as mayor. She was first elected in 1983 and since then her list of accomplishments include getting the Stawamus Chief designated a provincial park and landing Quest University, despite bids from six other communities. She also established a historical milestone in 1993 by becoming our first female mayor. In 1964 the town of Squamish and outlying communities amalgamated to form the District of Squamish. With the 50th anniversary of that momentous event fast approaching, this presentation will offer not only unique insights into one of our most formative historical periods, but also candid opinions about the district’s future directions. Corinne was a speaker at the Squamish Culture & Heritage Festival at Quest University Canada in November 2012.

Sat. Nov. 22 8 pm $20 at BAG or Xocolatl.
AUGUST: Beverley Elliott, Linda Kidder & Rae Armour
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and feel safe while having a hot flash.

AUGUST is a group of three Westcoast singer/songwriters, Beverley Elliott, Linda Kidder and Rae Armour who write and perform original music, threaded through with stories, anecdotes and confessions. They generally attract a largely female audience, but the men love them too!

These women sing and tell about life’s lessons, heartaches, car troubles, car theft, weight issues, motherhood, debt, inspiration, standing up for oneself and the wisdom gained as one flies past fifty.... and steam-rolls right through menopause. AUGUST tells everywoman’s story. It’s easy to relax into the intimacy of the evening with the honesty of their stories, their sweet harmonies supported by a wash of beautiful acoustic guitars.

They have been a favourite at concerts, festivals, and benefits around the country for the past five years. The women of AUGUST have had a ball combining three successful solo careers, blending their life experiences into each performance and their current CD “The Sweetest Day”.

An evening with AUGUST is like flipping through a little pocket manual for the everyday surprises that life can spring upon us.

Tues. Nov. 25 7:30 pm By donation.
Overcomers: An Evening of Worship Music
With Mario & Anne Iacavone

Sat. Nov. 29 8pm $20 at BAG or Xocolatl

Antony Holland has just won the Order of Canada, and this could be the LAST TIME you get to see him. He is definitely NOT GOING GENTLE! At 93 years of age, Mr. Holland is still touring his one-man shows!

We first encountered Antony Holland in Penticton at the Dream Café and knew right away we had to get him to Brackendale. The first time was 2009 with Tuesdays with Morrie, then One Man In His Time (2012), and Antony Holland’s Shakespeare (2013). If you saw any of these, we know you won’t miss this one and if you weren’t here you need to come!

NOT GOING GENTLE: A theatrical collage by a master story teller, Antony takes his audience through the full span of emotions. Drawing from Shakespeare, personal anecdote, poetry, song and priceless not seen before pieces, Antony tells stories you will never want to forget, and never will: his time in a Vancouver prison, performing at the Royal Opera House in Cairo and his time with the British intelligence Service.

Antony Holland is one of Canada's most notable actors, and as founder of the prestigious Studio 58 acting program at Langara College, he is a pioneer of theatre in B.C. He is the winner of three Vancouver Jessie Awards, the Sam Payne Award for "Humanity, Integrity and Encouragement of New Talent," the Union of B.C Performers Award of Excellence for distinguished contribution to the industries of theatre, radio, film and television, and he has been inducted into the B.C Entertainment Hall of Fame. He has appeared in countless movies and television series, among them McCabe and Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Delafield Wants to Marry (with Katharine Hepburn), and Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital. He has acted on stage for over fifty years from The Bristol Old Vic to his performance in The Fly Fisher’s Companion for Magnus Theatre in Thunder Bay. His acclaimed performance as King Lear at Studio 58 in Vancouver has only been eclipsed by his role as Morrie in Tuesdays with Morrie, which he has played to audiences across the country, numbering over 40,000 and counting!

November Artist: David Low
Landscapes From Within:
A collection of his most recent Oil Paintings.

David low is of Scottish birth and heritage. He has collected most of his visions growing up and living in the coastal region of BC. He moved to Golden in 1997 and his more recent landscapes portray the influence of living in the Kootenays, with the challenges of rock, glacier and river wetland.

Low works in a variety of sizes, but his large oils are striking. Some of his canvases may appear darkish but he expertly weaves colourful gradations and changes the ‘temperature’ to keep the viewer’s eye moving around the painting. Inspiration comes from the landscape and floral genres as residues of those experiences rather than direct observation. An impressionist David Low’s land- and seascapes, floral cascades and designed scenery are an attempt to capture nature’s spirituality and energy. David Low has a long association with the BAG, with solo shows, group shows, workshops and musical events and we are pleased to feature him again.
