Calgary-based singer songwriter, Amy Thiessen takes over the Dawson Creek Art Gallery Tuesday, Apr. 26 on her CD release tour.
The Concert in the Gallery Production will feature Thiessen's personal brand of folk music mixed with a wide range of other musical genres from rock to ancient mantras inspired from Thiessen's visit to India where she developed a love affair for healing work, yoga and Buddhism.
Her independent debut album, Give Up the Fight, pairs spiritual and physical well-being with the divine powers of music.
"If everyone was truly comfortable and happy with themselves, the rest of the world would be symptomatic of that," says Thiessen on her website.
"Music is my way of connecting to that somehow. I came back from India and started learning to play the guitar as a part of my plan to deliver that essence to people. That work is exemplified in Give Up The Fight."
Tickets are available at the door. The show starts at 7 p.m.
