Hear of wild coasts and Arctic adventures in this weekend's Trust Me concert

The Trust Me Series presents singer-songwriter David Newland and Canadian Geographic photographer Scott Forsyth Nov. 24

It’s a happy fluke that both of November’s “Trust Me” series shows are related to the Canadian wilds conveyed in song, photographs and video that give us a unique look at places and adventures most of us haven’t had.  

On Sunday, Nov. 24, at Tir-na-nOg Theatre, Ontario singer-songwriter and expedition host David Newland will join Canadian Geographic Photographer-in-residence Scott Forsyth to share their experiences from several summers (often along with Barney Bentall) travelling to the Artic and Inside Passage with Adventure Canada as zodiac drivers, hosts, crew, and entertainers, or in Scott’s case, photographer.

The trips are so inspiring that each artist has newly released works based on those experiences and the two have teamed up to share their works in concerts across the country. David will share songs from his latest album Northbound, a descriptive and moving culmination of seven trips to the truly Great White North. Scott will share images from his new book The Wild Coasts of Canada, an astounding collection of photographs and essays celebrating the grandeur of Canada’s most remote regions along the three ocean coastlines. 

I can promise you a very special evening.

 You can learn more about David’s music at davidnewland.com and Scott’s photography at  scottforsyth.ca and  adventurecanada.com. 

 If Barney can make it back from Calgary in time he will reunite with his shipmates for couple of songs.

Tickets ($20) are available at The Hearth, Phoenix Books (where you might get to meet my favourite dog ever, Buttercup) or online at wildcoastsbowen.eventbrite.ca.
