Fri. April 30th 2004 Logan's Pub (No Minors)
Presented by: Brand X Media, Copperspine Records
Roger Dean Young & The Tin Cup

A prairie boy with an ear for the sparse and quiet sounds, a penchant for occasional dissonance and a hunch that there's always something else goin' on. Roger Dean Young was raised on a farm in Alberta and tried politics in Ottawa, teaching in Morniningside, eavestroughing in Red Deer, and coppersmithing in Port Moody, before settling with his guitars near Main Street in Vancouver.

Though prepared to perform solo, Young prefers to bring along the tin cup, a drop-in, mish-mash of fiddle, banjo, effected guitar, and lowing horns. Featuring guest appearances by, among others, Rebecca Till, Pellucid and the Be Good Tanyas' Samantha Parton.

Leah Abramson

Leah Abramson is 21 year old Vancouver based singer-songwriter and guitarist. A recent co-creator and organiser of the Victoria Wimmin In Music showcase series promoting independent female musicians, Leah now performs and lives around both Vancouver and Victoria. Leah Abramsonís music is also featured in 3 films: "Songstress" by artist Althea Thauberger (to be screened in art galleries across Canada in 2002), "A Parent is Forever" and "Parent Pour la Vie" educational films being presented in Canadian classrooms, and an independent political documentary about the MAI. Leah Abramsonís melodic songwriting and intense live performances earned this comment from a Discorder magazine reviewer: ďMs. Abramsonís million-dollar voice is nothing short of breathtaking. This combined with her excellent songwriting ability and instrumental talents makes her eventual capture by capitalists and removal to California sadly inevitable.Ē
