Join the irreverent fun in this hilarious and heart-aching romp, as comedian Jan Derbyshire performs the one person play Certified, and turns the audience into a mental health review board to help determine her current state of sanity. Come humorously grapple with hefty questions like: What’s crazy? What isn’t crazy? Who decides? In this comic case, you do. Then, kick back with The Jeff Standfield band, featuring Jeff Standfield (guitar and singer), Dave Symington (drums), Graeme Wyman (bass), and Dan Moxon (keyboards).
The performance is staged by Wingpsan’s partnership with Vancouver Adapted Music Society.

SongBird North: Where Writers Sing and Tell — Vancouver Show #107 features
Chris Kelly & Nicole Gibson
Shari Ulrich, host
Vancouver’s longest-running songwriters’ showcase will kick off 2018 in style on February 7, as Chris Kelly & Nicole Gibson, Edith Wallace and Luke Wallace (no relation) share the Roundhouse stage with host/producer Shari Ulrich. This will be the 107th show in this popular series, formerly known as Bluebird North. It’s always a unique live music experience; a warm, unplugged vibe, varied and inspiring performances, great stories, and of course, superlative song-writing. The event is also celebrating 13 years of being held in one of Vancouver’s finest performances spaces at the historic Roundhouse, with their new seating and Myer sound system.
SongBird North: Where Writers Sing and Tell is produced by Shari Ulrich for the Songwriters Association of Canada. The SAC gratefully acknowledges the support of the SOCAN Foundation. For more information on the SAC’s mandate, activities and membership programs, please visit www.songwriters.ca.
BACKGROUND: Since 1995, SongBird North (formerly Bluebird North) has been a mainstay in Vancouver for songwriters from across the continent, as a bi-monthly showcase that features four talented singer/songwriters of widely varying styles, on stage together, taking turns playing their own original songs and sharing stories with one another and the audience about their work. The series has toured nationally, and has established itself in several other Canadian cities. Vancouver remains its longest-standing host city. www.songwriters.ca

CHRIS KELLY & NICOLE GIBSON
Now based in Vancouver, Chris Kelly and Nicole Gibson met in Montreal, at a merch table while both fronting their own bands. They began collaborating by making duo versions of popular songs on YouTube. After acquiring over a quarter million views on their videos and over half a million plays on Sound Cloud they realized the potential in writing their own original music. Their first song, ‘Out of The Dark’, was released in April 2017 and was a finalist in several international songwriting competitions. They then self-released their debut EP ‘Out of the Dark’ single by single. “We write whenever we feel inspired by a certain event, a person, an emotion or just life in general, whatever triggers a song.” www.kellyandgibson.com
Transplanted to Canada from Scotland as a teenager, Edith Wallace finally settled on British Columbia’s West Coast after several years in Alberta. A prolific songwriter, her songs have never been easily categorized; they’re a little bit folk, a little bit pop, a little bit adult contemporary. But there are common threads: Edith’s passionate, memorable voice, and her compelling ability to find truth, beauty and humour in the travails of every-day life. All this is true of her fourth album of original songs: First Bloom, a double album that reveals an added helping of personal courage, and hard-won clarity of artistic vision. Edith tours across North America and has performed in Japan, Australia and Europe. www.edithwallacemusic.com
Folk musician and activist Luke Wallace believes that music and story are some of humanity’s most powerful tools; he has seen firsthand their ability to inspire a shift in individuals’ and communities’ attitudes. Luke uses his music as a platform to amplify the voices of communities threatened by resource extraction, and to contribute to the growing revolution spreading around the world. Luke hails from Vancouver but his “folktivism” has taken him far and wide: to France for COP21, Costa Rica where he represented his coast at a climate change conference, and all through Canada’s west coast and interior. Luke is a part of “Come To Life Music”, an artist-led music collective that utilizes musicians’ voices to inspire change for humanity and the planet. www.lukewallacemusic.com
HOST – SHARI ULRICH
Shari’s 45-year career – from Pied Pumkin through The Hometown Band and on as a solo artist and multi-instrumentalist – has led to 23 albums, including collaborations with Bill Henderson and Roy Forbes (UHF), Barney Bentall & Tom Taylor (BTU), and the bluegrass band The High Bar Gang. Her work has garnered several Juno Award nominations and two awards, induction into the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame, and a 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for English Songwriter of the Year. Her passion for songwriters sharing a stage has lead her to produce the Bluebird North and SongBird North series for the SAC for over 21 years, both locally and nationally. www.shariulrich.com
