Vancouver’s Reid Jamieson shines his light with an incredible voice, therapeutic lyrics, and a magical way with melodies. A regular on CBC’s Vinyl Cafe, and winner of the grand prize for folk in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, Reid’s original recordings feature guests Sarah Harmer, Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas) and others. Reid recently recorded and performed with the Cowboy Junkies on The Kennedy Suite project. Check out his treasure trove of unique covers, from Elvis to Mary Margaret O’Hara, on Reido Radio.

Reid can often be found performing as alongside his songwriting partner (and wife) Carolyn Victoria Mill. Along with their Lennon win, the two wrote their way into the Vancouver Folk Music Festival by winning 1st prize in the Pickin’ a Folk Star Contest, and have placed as finalists in several competitions internationally. This creative couple have just released a new album (their first singing together on disc) titled Juniper’s Kitchen. 12 years in the making, it’s a little Johnny & June meets Fleetwood Mac – and all about the songs.

JohnElliottPlease join us for a house concert with John Elliott on Sunday, July 19, 2015 at 3 p.m. $15-20 suggested donation, all $$ to the artists. You can RSVP below, or by emailing Linda at linda@berkeleyhouseconcerts.org or by phone to Tom at 510-697-4097. We’ve included a youtube video of a performance below.

John Elliott has performed thousands of shows on several continents and in 49 of the 50 United States (Hawaii for the win). His music is as indelible as it is indefinable. His songs have been heard in movies, on network and cable television, on iPods, in cars, on radios, and around campfires. He has been releasing albums on Garland Lane, his own label, since 2004 to an always growing number of listeners. He remains an unsigned and unaffiliated artist and he is proud of that fact. He continues to make a living and build a dedicated following the old fashioned way: one new believer at a time. www.thehereafterishere.com
