~ 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.

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

This photo has Mark Thibeault's, coasty and ghosty Cassiar paintings in it..Love those. It was almost time to drag fiddler/violinist, Kiri Daust with me to do our Skeena river trip and stay at Cassiar cannery site. Cancelled of course, but hopefully next year. After reading "Gumboot Girls", "Island"and "Klee Wyck", I am just in love with the coasts..East and West. Our son's fiancé, Anne, said Canadian women are crazier..they work hard and do outdoor things, they are so involved in everything.. I added + beautiful too ! Will have songs and stories, new and old - to bring to places- soonish. Looking forward to it...Recording and writing songs now. If you feel the urge, please tell me a "drive all night in the summer under Northern skies" story. That song is 30 years old .! Whaat ???
