~ Frank Peebles / Prince George Citizen

What they say...

What they say...

“The soundtrack for my life is taken from Mark Perry’s music. His song-writing, musical expression and stage presence emanates the very best, most magical qualities of life in a northern town. Perry’s music invites me in to sit by his fire and feel like a cherished neighbour for a while.”

 

~ Carolina DeRyk, Host, CBC Radio

What they say...

What they say...

“This singer/songwriter from Smithers is one of our finest, a guy whose songs are full of the telling little joys, frustrations and messy minutiae of real life. In a world of so much artifice, he’s one of the real things.”   ~ J.P.M., The Province, Vancouver, BC

What they say...

“Geography may have shaped Perry’s character, but it hasn’t compromised his music’s universal appeal.”   ~ The Georgia Straight, Vancouver, BC

What they say...

“Offers a real slice of life, sans saccharin. I recommend it.”   ~ Rogue Folk Reviews

A Mark Perry concert is like a Canadian roadtrip...

A dozen albums strong, Mark Perry is deeply loved in regions across Canada for his good-humoured, thought-provoking performances and socially-narrative songs. He is a storyteller of time & place, sweeping you up in emotional and animated tales of sinking ferries, springtime floods, NHL dreams… or buying a car for “two cords of wood and 24 beer”. “New Jersey has Springsteen, New York has Billy Joel, northern BC has Mark Perry,” salutes music reviewer Frank Peebles. Towns dying, towns being born, small planes going down… from Halifax to Haida Gwaii, this Canadian singer-songwriter draws us in and connects us from coast to coast.

HAY ! That's what life's been about lately - and it's in the barn ! Yahoo !..here's a short little song for our Northern gardener pals...inspired by watching Joe Hug ( prez ? of Hug's Organic's) plant potatoes with a just about 100 year old machine ! His produce is amazing. People are growing beautiful produce at home...From coast to coast, Kim Barlow to Rachelle VanZanten..I bet Alex Cuba secretly has carrots growing in his back yard ! It's a movement..Let's take care of each other.
.oh ya, new record is coming along nicely...and thanks to Elija Quinn Larsen for a volume boost on this clip. Facebook dropped this "new Look" on me and I got so confused I just stopped posting for a bit. Darn I hate when they do that. Putin must have said time for a change..

REDEFINING TELKWA - (good luck). Walk or bike along River street in Telkwa to Eddy park and it's Beautiful..sorry Telkwa, but it's the truth. BUT Telkwa has a reputation to uphold..when I went to school they called their own floor hockey team "the Telkwa Bums". "Harry's Steakhouse" (with an "Orange Crush" sign out side,) "Used to be a Rocker" are soooo..Telkwa. You can have a smokey open pit fire by the roadside, rev up your car with no muffler...but you wake up the next day and you will still be beautiful ! Ha - live with it Telkwa. Laughing about this terrible identity crisis, riding my bike and watching kayakers go by, I headed up the hill, homeward. 3 LOUD 4x4's drove by, the last one had a bumper sticker Painted on - "TELKWA F'IN PRIDE" ! The struggle continues.. ... See MoreSee Less
