Project Description

Eastside Music Series

Eastside music is a party that happens every year, bringing together musicians from different communities, genres, ages and backgrounds. The musician perform and record two songs in one take with CBC Engineer Derek Bird. Some songs are originals, others are covers and the musicians range from professionals in the industry to people that never play outside their bedroom. People do their song in one take and it is a truly special evening.

The recording is then packaged into a CD and given to all of the musicians. A gift for musicians by musicians. There is no other purpose.

The recordings evolved into a night of live music that hosts many of these same musicians with the bi-monthly live concert series called the “Eastside Music Series”. It is currently on hold but will resume at some point.
