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...

“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.

Vancouver is such a beautiful city ! ( brother Dan photo) It's always exciting to go there. Over the years I've had the honour of playing the Vancouver folk festival, the Wise hall...too fun! Hoping to spread a little of Northwest B.C. around the province in the Fall or..(?).. omg - everything has a Covid slant to it these days..maybe spread is not the right word ... My wonderful niece Tess, made this mask as a Christmas present, kind of an ominous foreshadowing. A long time Canucks fan, can't wait for next season, when we can start UNDEFEATED and OPTIMISTIC. Hoping to roll up sleeve soon ... ... See MoreSee Less

SPRINGTIME !
You can hear the water running.. no lawnmowers yet but snowblowers are put away ! Biked out to Sunny Telkwa and passed a reappearing tractor...and crazily, a lemonade stand ! The back of my jacket was little muddy but We Are On Our Way !
Patou posted a couple cool quotes from Leo Tolstoy - "True life is lived when tiny changes occur" " In our world everybody thinks of changing humanity and nobody thinks of changing themselves" This is as close as I will come to reading War and Peace.
Saturday, 7pm, I am doing a zoom songwriter night online with 3 or 5 others from across North America. Hopefully I won't shame the great Northwest . We are talking to people right now about touring in the Fall..HOPE ! Woohoo !

Mark Perry

Rob Flockhart. Feb 6 1956- Jan 2 2021. Backyard rinks were pretty common growing up in Northern Canada. Wayne and Walter Gretzky made them famous. Rob and Ron Flockhart skated on a beautiful backyard rink. Their Dad, Vern, (who was a grader operator-how cool is that?), made it perfect imho. The rink was "best in class" in our neighbourhood. Rob spent many hours with younger brother Ron and a few lucky neighbours flying around on it. Rob and Ron were both natural athlete's and would figure out any sport in a hurry. They were also great guys ! Funny and humble. Real Canadians eh !
Rob played for Team Canada juniors in in 1975. Drafted by Vancouver, Rob played 55 games in the NHL, and a lot of games in the American and Central leagues. I think his career was probably typical of so many great young players. So much competition for so few spots. He was a great family guy, person, and athlete. Rob thanks for being you. He and Ron and other Northern hockey heroes make subtle appearances in a few hockey songs of mine..." Frozen Lakes, Breakaway and the upcoming Cold Road". Rest in Peace Rob. All the best to your family and friends
