Very excited about this one! Wyndham Thiessen moved away a bunch of years ago - philosophy at U of T, then l'Arche work in Alberta and now, hmm, Saskatoon? Before that he was a fixture at Pacific Theatre: a couple versions of COTTON PATCH GOSPEL at Pacific Theatre and on tour, and regular CHRISTMAS PRESENCE appearances, occasional concerts. (If you've got the CHRISTMAS PRESENCE cd, you'll remember "Talking Home Invasion Blues.")
Well, he's back for Christmas with his family (you also know his brother Matthew from YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU and prior Stones Throw shows, and his bro-in-law Steve Dawson from various PT musical events) and he comes bearing gifts, a sackful of tunes old and new. It was going to be a living room concert, but there's only so many people you can fit into a living room, so we at Pacific Theatre invited him over to our place (where we've got a few more chairs).
Want to join us? Steve will also be playing - of Zubot & Dawson fame, who produced Jim Byrnes' amazing "House Of Refuge" cd, and "The Sojourners" follow-up recording. It'll be fab.
