May House Concert with Ken Tizzard
Thu, May 4, 2017, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM EDT
Join PFS in welcoming Ken Tizzard for a PFS House Concert!
Very few Canadian musicians have had as fascinatingly diverse a career as Ken Tizzard. In over two decades as a professional musician, he has gone from plying his trade as the charismatic bassist in top Canadian rock bands The Watchmen and Thornley (he is featured on six gold and platinum records) to then emerging as an eloquent roots-based singer/songwriter and guitarist with a prolific solo career.
Wearing his rock 'n roll hat, Ken has toured internationally, appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and played such major venues as The Air Canada Centre. When he puts on his cowboy hat, Tizzard can be spotted performing his original material, solo or with a band, for a loyal and growing audience in pubs, clubs and concert halls across Canada.
His new album, No Dark No Light, is Tizzard's fifth solo studio record since his 2006 debut, Quiet Storey House...an Introduction. A work of real emotional and musical resonance, No Dark No Light is emerging as his strongest work to date. It continues Ken's pattern of never repeating himself stylistically, as its acoustic country meets folk ambience is in sharp contrast to his previous album, 2012's The Goodness of Bad Intent. Recorded with his trio Bad Intent, that album was built around the evocative sounds of the pedal steel and it featured more of a rock 'n roll vibe.
PFS and the hosts ask that guests act in a respectful manner and be considerate of the performers and other attendees--if you do not, you may be asked to leave by PFS staff or the hosts.
Advance registrations for this performance are REQUIRED.
Admission is free for PFS members and $10 for Advanced Tickets for non-members.
The location for the concert will be at the McGlinchey residence in South Philadelphia--there is parking across the street at the bank.
Please bring something to share! Pot luck at 7pm, music at 7:30pm.
