Living Acoustic Music LIVE! on Elgin Featuring:
The Mark J. Nyvlt Band:
Mark J. Nyvlt is a Canadian singer-song writer. Born in Ottawa, but traveled extensively around the world. Coming from an international family, he was exposed to the pulse of international matters at an early age. Schooled at Canterbury High School for the Arts (Classical guitar), Nyvlt was fortunate enough to witness a rich array of talent in all the fields of the Arts. Sadly, Nyvlt put the guitar down for a very long 15 years while pursuing his studies and his Ph.D. in Ancient Greek Philosophy at Boston University. He now compensates for this loss of time. Now, a permanent professor of Ancient Greek Philosophy at the Dominican University (Ottawa), he continues to integrate philosophical themes into his songs, along with the political and quotidian events of life. He performs regularly in Ottawa and collaborates with the very talented community of musicians in Ottawa.
Alan Sandeman got his first guitar, a Stella, for his 13th Christmas. Since then music has played an ever increasing role in his life. He started with music in his church in Kingston and has moved on to playing in a few local bands. Currently, Alan sings and plays lead guitar and bass in the band Assembly Required.
In recent years Alan has discovered songwriting and the thrill of performing original compositions. His songs range from upbeat silly and humourous to poigniant, thoughtful ballads, several of which are on his current CD, Proclivity. February 22 will be an opportunity to share some new songs as well as older familiar ones and perhaps even a cover or two.
Well known for her powerful and expressive voice, Pat Moore has the gift of drawing you into each song, and taking you on the journey. Her original songs are rich with stories. Whether it’s an original song, jazz, roots, bluegrass, or 60’s standard, the emotion, playfulness, and depth of Pat’s interpretive style will linger with you long after the show.
An all round entertainer, with an engaging stage presence, Pat is also well known for her productions such as the annual Christmas GOOSE concerts, the Ottawa Opry, and and as one of 4 hosts on the Saturday Morning Show on CKCU.
