Earth Hour 2011- A Suzuki Birthday Bash!
Saturday, March 26, 2011, show 8:00pm

The Artesian on 13th, Regina

SaskMusic is pleased to support this upcoming evening of rich, original folk-rock in support of Earth Hour, David Suzuki’s 75th birthday, and the Universal Music iTunes release of the CBC Radio 3/David Suzuki Playlist for the Planet.  The concert will take place on Saturday, March 26, 2011 at The Artesian on 13th in Regina and will feature four Regina singer/songwriters; Glenn Sutter, David j. Taylor, Rebecca Lascue, and Michael Paul. The event will also feature special internet appearances by David Suzuki (via videotape) and his daughter Severn Cullis-Suzuki (via skype).


Glenn Sutter is a Saskatchewan ecologist and educator who writes and plays kick-ass folk-rock.  Drawing on deep prairie roots, he uses thoughtful lyrics and moving guitar and piano melodies to express ideas about nature, love, and the human condition. Glenn’s song “Weight of the World” was selected as the official Saskatchewan song on the CBC Radio 3/David Suzuki Playlist for the Planet.


David j. Taylor is an award-winning record producer/engineer/mixer. He won "Producer of the Year" - 2007 Western Canadian Music Awards and was again nominated for the award in 2008. David’s most recent project is a collaborative album and SXSW Showcase with the trio Semko Fontaine and Taylor.


Rebecca Lascue and Michael Paul have been playing together for the past year as they both work on their psychology degrees.  They combine elegant songwriting with creative harmonies and instrumentations.


Earth Hour is a yearly global event that draws attention to global warming and the need to conserve energy. Join us in reflection and celebration as the world goes dark! Half the proceeds from this event will be donated to the David Suzuki Foundation.


Also supported by the Saskatchewan Outdoor and Environmental Education Association and the David Suzuki Foundation.


Tickets are $15 each ($10 for students) and will be available at the door.
