Tribute to Phil Thomas8pm, SundayNovember 12th '06St. James Hall3214 West 10th Avenue
Various BC Artists
at Trutch St. in Kitsilano
Phil Thomas is a remarkable man. A singer, song collector, author and so much more. He has achieved far less recognition than other Canadian and American song collectors yet some of his songs have sold millions (Cowboy Junkiesí Mining for Gold for instance). His book "Songs Of The Pacific North West" is being reissued this month, and the folk community is celebrating the launch with this tribute show.
