Les Stroud: Musician! Thursday, October 25

Les Stroud: Musician! Thursday, October 25. Doors: 7:30pm. Show: 8:00. Tickets: $30 / $25 students/seniors/un(der)waged.  A Canadian survival expert, filmmaker and musician best known as the creator, writer, producer, director, cameraman and host of the television series Survivorman, Les LesStroud2_10_18Stroud has made a powerful name in the world of documentary film making, indeed starting an entirely new genre of TV, yet he comes by his music honestly. Since the age of 14 Stroud has been writing songs and studying musically. By 23 his music was being shopped to the likes of Bruce Springsteen and he was a published songwriter. Taking a break from music to concentrate on outdoor adventure Stroud eventually returned to his first love. He wrote and recorded all through the inception and eventual success of filming the Survivorman TV series, which included releasing 4 CDs as well as performing hundreds of concerts.
He has been nicknamed the “Hendrix of harmonica” for good reason. It is said Les plays the ‘harp’ like he’s playing a guitar; watching him live is awe-inspiring. Fusing modern technology with a powerful set of lungs, Stroud plays with a confidence and style that no other player captures today. Website: http://www.lesstroud.ca/music/
