Slackwater Sessions #7 - Tavis Weir
Slackwater Sessions free live music continues after last weeks epic Slackfest. Sets are now an hour later, from 8pm – 10pm.
Tavis Weir is a Canadian songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who currently creates in and explores the interior of British Columbia. Tavis’ performance has been described as authentic, honest and he has been known to take risks on stage; not afraid to depart from the scripted. He recently independently released his debut full length album “Those Who Go Alone” on which he overlaid all the instruments, like some mad scientist in his home studio/laboratory, before it ripened to full fruition through Corwin Fox’s masterful mixing. Tavis’ original music features effortless vocal melodies held up by an intricate web of fingerpicking guitar or the rhythms of clawhammer banjo. He has been likened to Paul Simon, Sting, José González. After studying Jazz at the University of Toronto, Tavis has performed often at the renowned Dream Café, toured with Juno Award winner Oscar Lopez and shared stages with the likes of Shane Koyczan and Ben Waters and continues to push his musical boundaries, solo, or with his bands “The Screendoors” and “Slow Motion National Park”.
