October 10, 2013

Brandi Pratt Media Director Taylor Made Media Ltd. Suite 215-2433 Dollarton Hwy North Vancouver, B.C. Dear Brandi: West Vancouver’s 2013 Harmony Arts Festival, presented by Odlum Brown Limited, was a tremendous success this year, with over 120,000 people in attendance over the 10 days. The weather was outstanding and contributed to the amazing waterfront experience. The festival continues to grow, and offers a higher level of musical performances, new artist workshops and artsy kids studio, exhibitions of visual arts with a juried group show, an upscale art market with over 80 tents, dance and drum performances, new area for food carts called the Artisan Eats, a children’s art auction, and great family outdoor movie screenings, with popcorn too! Our audience ranged from the smallest of children to seniors from our own community and from beyond. It is a destination Festival! The Harmony Arts Festival is very thankful and appreciative of RE/MAX’s involvement, contribution, and partnership with this year’s Festival. The attached report is a review of your sponsorship, and the media exposure that they received. We are including a communications review of print material, collateral, signage, and paid media, and have attached clippings from many of the noteworthy articles on the Harmony Arts Festival. Secondly, we are including some notable pictures from the Festival, along with the Festival’s specific overall media exposure, including the additional radio advertising and TV spots this year. Lastly, I have included the press releases, and Festival script with the daily announcements.

RE/MAX, had increased exposure as a result of some of the new programming added to the festival this year. There was the children’s new art programming, as well as greater festival presence on the radio, TV spots, and bus shelter ads. Your presence was felt, on the festival site, with the logo on all of the large tower signage, and signage at the foot of 15th St. on the garden stage. This year we continued to capitalize on broader marketing of the Harmony Arts Festival, continuing with the banners on the streets, a sense of arrival with tower signage and new large stage scrims, giving a more professional look. Major sponsors such as RE/MAX had the logo displayed on the poster, the bus shelter, the large cube signs and 13 – 3x3 signs located throughout West Vancouver. We have included the list of signage in the attached report. With your sponsorship of the RE/MAX Garden Concerts, your logo graced the center page of our Festival Guide, and was featured prominently on the stage scrim of the garden stage. The RE/MAX Garden Concerts, were in high demand. The Art Market tenting remained up through the ten days of the festival, and stayed open on both weekends again this year. We also continued with the radio station sponsorship which added advertising and talk about the festival on The Peak FM. New this year was the signing of a new magazine sponsorship with Homes & Living. They featured an editorial ad appearing in the June and the August issues. RE/MAX’s logo was prominently located in the ad. The Homes & Living magazine took the festival up a notch, showcasing the art and culinary parts of the festival in their magazine. The ad highlighted the two paid events: Best of the West, and RARE, the sponsored sit down dinner evening on the water, featuring Rodney’s Oyster House shucking the “rare” seafood. RARE, was held at the beachfront at Lawson Creek Studio and became a contemporary casual dining lounge, with seafood paired with wines and savoury spirits. This amazing waterfront experience included live music too! We all were very lucky to have it on one of those amazing evenings, weather wise, in Vancouver. With the festival this year, we saw a trend, the trend being, festival goers wanting to be on the waterfront, with a glass of wine, and a plate of great food. The added benefit of amazing nearby art, and musical entertainment, is the icing on the cake. We want to capitalize on this need, and plan to hold several more “events” surrounding this theme next year, whether it is a family barbeque at long tables, or different celebrity chef dinners, we will be looking to develop this culinary area of the festival. The waterfront and the people are demanding it! This year we continued to build on the brand and chose art work for the festival guide, t-shirts and cards. This art piece was selected from the West Vancouver Document Number: 672675


Museum from the estate of the Binning family. This painting was done by Bertram Charles Binning, a resident of West Vancouver, back in 1961. This painting was the art piece branded for Harmony 2013, and it carried the sun and waterfront image through the festival. We activated the waterfront with the Garden Stage at the foot of 15th St. The Waterfront Lounge continues to be a huge success, with expanded musical programming with acts like Barney Bentall on the stage, as well as the improved sale of food and beverages. house wine, handled the operation of the Waterfront Lounge for the District, and also marketed Harmony, and all the festival had to offer, through their website, and to their marketplace. The restaurant Mangia e Bevia operated the food at the Waterfront lounge, with an added “gelato” bar for those hot summer days. We receive overwhelming feedback on the level of service and type of food served by Mangia e Bevia. The Waterfront Lounge is the place to be at the festival. The music programmed for this stage is focussed on the “Boomer” demographic, with the 40 – 64 age group attending most nights. The Art Market was open for both weekends of the festival. This is very well received. We have a jury select the artists for inclusion in the Art Market, which continues to bring the level of artisans up. This was embraced by everyone who visited. Argyle Street was closed, allowing a free flow of pedestrian traffic from one venue to the other. The Group Exhibition Tent, Artsy Kids Outdoor Studio, and For the Love of Art Exhibition Tent were all new art programming areas for the festival, and were very successful. The new Artsy Kids Outdoor Studio was a series of workshops, live demonstrations and hands-on art making activities like print and paper making, wood carving, bookbinding, black and white photography, animation, jewellery making, painting and more. This was greatly attended by the youth in the community. Another new feature this year was the area called Artisan Eats, which located several food carts in one area, a super way to give excitement, and a “vibe” to the Festival, and a full stream of people, staying to eat at the festival. The Opening Reception was very casual; festival goers had the opportunity to view art in the Group Exhibition Tent and upstairs at the Music Box, the Silk Purse, For the Love of Art Exhibition tent and at the Ferry Building. All of these locations had wine and cheese receptions provided for festival goers to enjoy, mingle and look at the art for the opening of the festival. There were many Senior’s enjoying these receptions.

Document Number: 672675


The headliner band for opening night was Spirit of the West. This drew a large crowd in John Lawson Park, for the opening festival speeches. This was a super way to kick off the festival, on a beautiful evening. Where else in the city can you do this on the waterfront with cruise ships going by? Next year’s festival will be August 1st to August 10th. Brandi, we thank you for RE/MAX’s immense commitment as a major sponsor and helping us make the Harmony Arts Festival such an exciting place to be. We could not do this without your support and we look forward to continuing this relationship for the years to come. Warmest regards,

Jacqui Stuart Event Sponsorship Manager Harmony Arts Festival Office of Culture, Environment, and Partnerships District of West Vancouver /js

White Fence Tim Presley makes some of the most interesting 1960s-tinged music out there right now.

5 REASONS TO ATTEND ...

A

The Harmony Arts Festival SHAWN CONNER SPECIAL TO THE SUN

. The dazzling smile of 1 Olivia Newton-John. The movies screening as part of the Cinema in the Park series at John Lawson Park (free, 9:15 p.m. start) represent an eclectic (but family friendly) lineup. They include two musicals, Grease (Aug 9, with the aforementioned Aussie singing sensation at her most dazzling) and Funny Girl (Aug. 3); Ang Lee’s hit adaptation of Yann Martel’s Life of Pi (Aug. 2); and a gently, quirky comedy set in Scotland, Local Hero (Aug. 4). The series is capped by a night of Canadian animation (Aug. 10).

2

. Emily Carr’s favourite venison stew recipe. The Harmony Arts Festival’s website

describes RARE (Aug. 8, $75/ ticket) as “a culinary evening inspired by the West Vancouver Museum’s collection of notable Canadian artists,” including Gordon Smith, Jack Shadbolt and, of course, Carr. Also on the food front: Best of the West (Aug. 7, $100/ticket) features 13 North Shore restaurants paired with 13 B.C. wineries. And, nightly, the beachfront at the foot of 15th Street becomes a contemporary casual dining lounge with a vantage point of the musical entertainment coming from the Pacific Arbour Garden Stage.

3

. Save This House. That song and others from the storied career of Spirit of the West, who perform as part of the Sunset Concert Series (nightly, 7:30 p.m.) at John Lawson Park on the opening night (Aug. 2) of the festival.

C7

SATURDAY-SUNDAY

The series is bookended by another Celtic-influenced band, The Paperboys. But there’s plenty more entertainment between, some of it not Irish in any way, shape or form. For instance, Cousin Harley — fronted by one of Vancouver’s best guitarists, Paul Pigat — will perform tasty country and rockabilly licks Aug. 4. Also look for up-and-coming acts Dear Rouge (winners of last year’s Peak Performance Project local band competition) and Champagne Republic. Based on title alone, the latter’s Broke Broke Girl would be our new favourite jam (if we knew what that meant).

4

. Creampuff Girlie Boxer Shorts. Among the many, many handcrafted and locally made glassworks, jewelry and dog portraits on sale at the Art Market, these naturally stand

out. Designer Gerry-Gail “GG” Endean calls them “a hybrid of sports shorts and sexy pretty lingerie to wear every day!” There’s a ton more stuff in the art market, of course, including KT and Paul’s handscreened fabrics, SockSmith’s sock animals, and Toad’s World’s creature dolls.

Q A

Q

5

. Be your own Jackson Pollock. Why buy other people’s art when you can make your own? Amaze friends, neighbours and in-laws with the new-found skills acquired in an afternoon workshop in, say, abstract expressionism or woodcarving. Then sell it on Etsy!

FOOD OF THE WEEK

> BY CAROLYN ALI

Tickets are selling quickly for two alfresco culinary evenings connected to the upcoming Harmony Arts Festival in West Vancouver. On August 7, the annual Best of the West event takes place on Ambleside Pier (at the foot of 14th Street and Argyle Avenue) with food and wine pairings from 13 B.C. wineries and 13 North Shore restaurants. August 8 marks the debut of RARE, a seafood-focused soiree held on a temporary deck near Lawson Creek Studios (1756 Argyle Avenue), where the creek meets the ocean. Rodney’s Oyster House is preparing dishes for the event, which features family-style dining and an oyster-shucking station. For tickets to both events ($100 and $75, respectively) call 604-925-7270; for info see harmonyarts.ca/. -

While participating food trucks change weekly, there are always at least 20 from which you can graze at the Food Cart Fest, which happens every Sunday just west of the Olympic Village. Lindsay Elliott photo.

a side of smokin’ hot, smoked-chipotle aioli. Perhaps not surprisingly given the heat, the Chili Tank (which serves chilies and soups) wasn’t seeing a lot of action, but then inexplicably neither was E.L.I.’s Serious Sausage, which offers premium, all-natural bratwurst on Schrippen buns and currywurst in a dish with house-made, lip-smacking curry ketchup. Hormone- and nitrate-free ingredients also make up the wieners at DougieDog Diner Truck, but these are not your typical ballpark franks. From his red-and-white-checkered truck, the owner, who goes by the name Dougie Luv, dishes up monsters like the Charlie Mac Dog, which is topped with bacon and macaroni and cheese, and the DougieDog, which comes with a crazy heap of pastrami, horseradish, melted Cheddar, and Grey Poupon mustard. Dougie makes his own butterscotch root beer, too. A favourite find was Johnny’s Pops, exotic popsicles in funky flavour combinations like raspberry-basil and avocado-lime. (There was also strawberry rhubarb, blueberry mojito, and creamy strawberry lemonade.) Other things to know about the fest: this

year, there’s a new admission fee of $2 for adults and a maximum of $5 for families (kids 13 and under get in free). The money goes toward renting the site, plus partial proceeds support A Loving Spoonful, which provides nourishing meals to people living with HIV/AIDS. Vancity members get in free, so remember to have that bank card handy. (There are ATMs onsite if you forget to bring cash.) There’s a market featuring vendors such as Zulu Records, as well as a rotating lineup of DJs, including Flipout and Cherchez La Femme. Kids have access to a bouncy castle and face-painting.

VISUAL ARTS

Animator creates the illusion of life Stearns preserves the old art of pen on paper Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

THE child bounds for the door but his escape is blocked by a towering figure wearing a sugary sweet smile. The kindergarten teacher has him trapped in a room of naiveté and juice boxes; alone in the knowledge of the horrors that loom in the darkness of nap time. This is the storytelling world of Vancouver animator Jeff Chiba Stearns, at once sweet and sophisticated. Stearns’ stories have included a Post-it note of uncertain genealogy who ascertains the whereabouts of his father, folds itself into a canary-coloured crane, and flies. Other work is autobiographical, detailing his struggle to become a filmmaker and ruminating on what it means to be a Canadian of Japanese and European descent, besides having a taste for perogies with soy sauce. What binds his work, almost without exception, is the dying art of pen and paper. A river of ink once flowed through Disney’s studios, rushing past the animators whose skilled hands acted as midwives in the birth of 80 years of indelible cartoons. From Mickey Mouse’s earliest misadventures aboard a steamship to Fantasia to The Princess and the Frog, hand-

drawn animation was the common link. That era appears to be over. But while Disney and other studios embrace computer animation, Stearns is as committed to ink and pulp as John Henry was to his sledgehammer. “To me there’s a romantic notion of pausing this in the world of animation of keeping it old school and drawing on paper. . . . A lot of people are drawing on computers now and I’m guilty of that, you’ve got to keep up, but at the same time there’s nothing like pen on paper,” he says, speaking in the rapid cadence befitting an artist who spends his life cramming as much as possible into one twenty-fourth of a second. Stearns will attempt to pass on his love of doodles, drawings, and sketches at the Classic Animation Anijam scheduled for Aug. 10 at the Harmony Arts Festival in West Vancouver. After taking children through a few of the basic principles of animation, the kids will see their work pieced into an animated film that evening. “There’s a definite reward and satisfaction to seeing a group of drawings you’ve done come alive,” Stearns says. Stearns’ use of the word ‘alive’ is instructive, because for him animation is ultimately about a single, vital component. “There’s tips and tricks and things over a hundred years that animators have come up with that help create that illusion of life,” Stearns says. Those tips and tricks include the squash and the stretch, so that the fingers stretching towards a frightened Dalmatian may seem to elongate

VISUAL ARTS

Kids will pen their drawings on Post-it pads From page 33 as they draw nearer. Disney animators Ollie Johnston and Frank Thomas laid out 12 of those principles in their 1981 book The Illusion of Life: Disney Animation. Characters should appear three-dimensional and move naturally, so that Ichabod Crane’s long limbs continue their gangly journey even after his torso is still. Great animation happens through constant observation of the nuances of movement, according to Stearns. “It’s one of the most misunderstood art forms to ever exist ‘cause I think a lot of people don’t quite understand the process that is involved with drawing thousands of drawings . . . and trying to capture that illusion of life in the drawings,” Stearns says. “As soon as you start teaching that to people they get it. . . . The walls break down.”

And as those walls crumble the artists can tell their own stories, Stearns explains. “It’s trying to get kids to self-reflect and express their emotions through just doodles, or drawings, or things that come alive,” Stearns says. Approximately 40 years before the first film was animated, the flipbook was patented. That early form of animation can still be useful, according to Stearns, who plans to have the young Anijam artists pen their drawings on Postit pads. “We need to de-mystify the process of animation for them so it’s not so intimidating,” he says. Stearns is hoping workshops like the one slated for Aug. 10 will leave children with a lasting affection for classical animation. “We want to basically keep an art form alive, or at least an appreciation for this art form,” he

says. “You kind of put yourself in a meditative state when you animate and that’s something where the stream of consciousness comes out through the pen and onto the page,” he explains. “It makes the process of doing many drawings over and over again more enjoyable because I think there is a level of reflection that happens,” he says, discussing his penchant for working at a delirious pace in a quiet environment. “You could say I’m obsessive compulsive, that’s for sure, which lends itself well to animation,” Stearns says. “We’re usually drawing thousands of drawings so I think you have to be a little OCD to be able to survive in this profession.” Before attending the animation program at Emily Carr, Stearns was fueled by sugar and the iconic Warner Bros. cartoons drawn by Bugs Bunny creator Tex Avery.

“Back then it was Saturday morning and that was it. You’d get your bowl of cereal and sit in front of the TV at five in the morning and geek out till they shut off at 12,” he remembers. Choosing to spend his working life manufacturing the intangible had its risks, but Stearns says he’s happy with his choices. “I work for myself, I work the hours I want to work and I do what I want to do and my life is never boring,” he says. “I could just do production and make a ton of cash, but it doesn’t fulfill me. The idea of giving back and being that socially responsible filmmaker and combining teaching and animation is to me bliss.” Stearns is currently working on an animated film entitled Mixed Match that deals with the difficulties multi-ethnic patients encounter when looking for bone marrow donors. The film is tentatively slated for a 2014 release.

THE Boom Booms’ high energy shows make people dance wherever they play. Earlier this year they were named Shore 104’s Best Band in B.C. Don’t miss their appearance at the Harmony Arts Festival on Thursday, Aug. 8 at 8:45 p.m.

ON the banks of the Xingu River in Brazil, Gordon Lightfoot came to their rescue. The chiefs from nine of Brazil’s indigenous tribes looked over The Boom Booms, a Vancouver sextet with a great affinity for Brazilian music. The band wanted to go down the river, but it would only happen if the chiefs agreed to take them. They had met at a house that served as a way station for tribesmen paddling in search of supplies or medical care. After a few greetings were exchanged, the band played “Steel Rail Blues,” a Gordon Lightfoot tune about loneliness and trains. “Big steel rail gonna carry me home to the one I love,” cavaquinho player Sean Ross sings over the phone, reliving the moment before launching into the song’s distinct falsetto: “Woo hoo, woo-hoo-oo.” It was the falsetto that won the chiefs over, he reports. “They loved it, they thought that was the funniest thing and it totally broke the ice,” Ross recalls. “After that one of the chiefs came and he was like, ‘Hey, I’d love to take you guys and show you where we live.’”

Farther down the river, construction had already begun on the Belo Monte Dam. Slated to be the third biggest hydroelectric dam in the world, the controversial project would divert approximately 80 per cent of the river’s flow; flooding more than 500 square kilometres of forest in the Amazon basin. Approximately 20,000 people are expected to be displaced by the project. “We were actually busking in Spain when we decided to make the trip and we had met some Brazilian girls who had gotten involved with the protest against the Belo Monte Dam,” Ross explains. “A big problem with the protest is that they’ve banned all photographers and journalists from the actual protest.” Once the band decided to go to Brazil, they elected to wade into the Belo Monte controversy. “We had done a fundraiser for the protest,” he said. “Through that, a few connections got made.” That connection got them an introduction to the chiefs, but it was Gordon Lightfoot that got them down the river. “Another example of music being the icebreaker,” Ross says. The Booms Booms are an eclectic mix of funk and pop that uses congas to complement electric guitars. Formed in 2007, the band has released three albums including the 2012 EP Make Dat Do Dat. For Ross, whose brother Aaron handles lead vocals, the band truly began with a Wes Anderson movie. While watching The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Ross was struck by the soundtrack, which featured

FRUITVALE STATION PAGE 18

Brazilian singer Seu Jorge performing David Bowie songs in Portuguese. “I actually saw that movie when I was pretty young and then started learning a couple of those renditions,” Ross says. He eventually became fluent in Portuguese, largely as the result of reading Brazilian song lyrics. Ross also became fascinated with the cavaquinho. Unable to find one of the small guitars at home, Ross played his brother’s re-strung ukulele until he was able to pick up the genuine article in Brazil. Despite owing so much of their sound to Brazil, four of the band’s members grew up within a few blocks of Nanaimo and Hastings in Vancouver. “Our conga player has played for 15 years in a Zimbabwean marimba band. Our guitar player came from a strictly rock background. Our bass player went to school for jazz,” Ross explains. “We’ve played so many shows together and tried so many different things and been so scattered that eventually it kind of synthesized into what we’re doing now.” The band is currently working with Chin Injeti, the Vancouver producer best known for collaborations with hip hop acts like Eminem and Drake. Following the trip to Brazil, the band returned to the rain of Vancouver with a slightly broader perspective. “They kind of had to drag me out of Brazil,” Ross explains. “It’s nice to know you can feel at home in two different countries.”

WorkSafe BC probes fatal fall in N. Van Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

WORKSAFEBC is investigating the death of a worker who fell from the roof of a North Vancouver construction site in June.

NEWS photo Kevin Hill

King of the stage MADELINE King takes to the stage in John Lawson Park Saturday as local youth bands got a chance to showcase themselves as part of West Vancouver’s Harmony Arts Festival. The arts festival runs to Aug. 11. Go to harmonyarts.ca for details. Scan the photo with Layar for more pics from the weekend.

Emergency responders and WorkSafeBCinvestigatorswere dispatched to a home under construction at 319 West 20th St. on June 14, after a roofing contractor tumbled six-anda-half metres from the roof, sustaining “serious injury,” according to WorkSafeBC inspection reports. Burnaby-based BJ Roofing & Insulation Ltd. employees were bringing a load of construction materials to the roof when the incident happened. The man had just finished bringing a coworker some lumber to be used as a pad for a load of shingles being lifted to the roof with a crane.

Conned turns con man in WV sting Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

A man being painted as a serial con man by those who say he duped them was arrested in West Vancouver recently after one of his most recent targets orchestrated a sting with the help of police. Wesley Devries, 43, is in custody, charged with theft over $5,000 and fraud. Those charges stem from deceptions allegedly foisted on both a North Vancouver bike shop and the North Shore Credit Union.

Bike store employee and duped woman join forces with police But others around the Lower Mainland say they’re also keen to see Devries answer to the long arm of the law. In fact, it was two of those other people who tracked Devries online through a Craigslist ad and arranged to meet him in a parking lot at Park Royal July 31 — with plainclothes West Vancouver police in attendance. The man who arranged to meet Devries in West Vancouver

last week was an employee of Dunbar Cycles in Vancouver — a shop staff said Devries had recently visited. According to store employees, Devries left his passport at the shop before taking a $7,000 carbon fibre bike out for a test ride. He didn’t return. When store employees at the Vancouver store posted their experience in online biking forums, it was all very familiar to Sasha Tomchenko, general manager of Cove Bikes in Deep Cove. “I know that guy,” he thought. Tomchenko said a man with the same name and description had pulled an identical stunt in his store, looking at several bikes

a-half, two years old. As far as I remember, that’s all I ever was going to do was drum. In Grade 1 I knew what I was going to do in life,” Ditrich says. Aside from a brief period where he contemplated a career in aviation and space exploration (“You can’t be a colour-blind astronaut/pilot”) Ditrich’s focus has stayed on music, a passion that was a little bigger than his hometown. “For fun, young people fought, played hockey, got pissed up and drove around on the strip, played more hockey, and I suspect sometimes partook of farmyard bestiality,” he writes in his online biography. During the course of a brief interview Ditrich opines on his love of jazz despite its current stagnancy (“It’s now a dead language, it’s like Sanskrit. People go to universities to study jazz. That’s ludicrous. You don’t study how to be cutting edge in society.”), as well as the trademarks of a Spirit of the West song (“I used to always say . . ‘In a Spirit of the West song you’ll never hear an ‘ain’t’ or a ‘baby.’”) On the subject of surviving life in a touring band, the drummer offers a succinct summation. “It involves a tremendous amount of Ichiban soup,” he says before delving deeper. “Musicians are basically, and I speak from personal experience, a bunch of dummies. They fixate on the

BEDECKED in custard-yellow polyester tuxedos, the trio serenaded the patrons at a Vancouver dive with a nine-minute, epically arranged version of the 1970s pop song “Paloma Blanca.” The upright bass player and the musician wielding a guitar with a peculiar resemblance to a Morris Minor economy car went on to form the Canadian alternative band Odds. The group’s third member, Vince Ditrich, who served the ensemble with snare drum and brushes, went on to become the drummer for Spirit of the West. The son of an army bandmaster, Ditrich got his start playing for his father’s wedding band in Lethbridge, Alta. “He saw when I was a tiny little boy that I had this natural inclination toward drums. He had me set up with a little drum kit by the time I was a year-and-

goal, and that goal is the gig. And the gig could be the most miserable piece of crap of a performance.” Ditrich earned his road warrior status during a stint hitting drums for Sue Medley in the 1980s. “Sometimes, especially early on, the tour routing was sheer torture, booked by an agent who surely lived at the seventh level of hell. One tour, in particular, began in the evening in Burnaby, B.C. at a political rally for Ed Broadbent, the old NDP federal candidate. We played our set, packed the van like sardines and headed non-stop for (get this) Thunder Bay, Ont.,” he writes. After opening for Dwight Yoakam in Thunder Bay, he turned around and headed for the next night’s gig in Winnipeg, Man. Today Ditrich has taken greater control over his career, working as a manager and producer with bands like House of Doc and Quinzy. “That’s what youth as a musician is, it’s finding that balance point between the real idealism of your art and the pragmatic aspects of turning it into a functional, viable business.” During those early years Ditrich provided the pace for children’s tunes, Ford truck ditties, heavy rock, and symphonic arrangements.

Pritchett branching out into artist management From page 17 his most popular songs “Hold My Beer.” In 2007 Big Wheel was nominated for Best Country Recording at the Junos and that same year Pritchett was named Independent Male Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year by the Canadian Country Music Association. According to Pritchett his most memorable moment in his career came when he was performing in Dauphin, Man., in front of 18,000 fans. “As soon as I heard the crowd chanting ‘Hold My Beer’ over and over again I just got shivers. I still think about it now and I still get such a rush,” Pritchett says. “This is exactly what I wanted when I was a kid, was to be able to hear that kind of a thing to be happening. It was amazing because I wasn’t expecting it.” While Pritchett has overcome a number of obstacles in his career, he says there has always been one challenge that has remained a constant. “It gets more and more as you get older and the longer you’re in the industry, but the biggest challenge is being away from your family and not having that connection,” Pritchett says. Frequent spells on the road have caused him to miss important events back home. “I sure missed a lot of birthday’s and key moments in my kid’s lives and my family’s lives that I should have been there for,” he says. “That’s the biggest challenge to me. It’s not trying to create the best music and having radio not play a single.” Two of Pritchett’s sons are now active musicians. His eldest, Jordan, is the lead guitarist for the Juno-nominated band Faber Drive and his middle son, Breydan, plays in the Kelowna-based band Westshore Falls. Going forward Pritchett plans to continue to release new material and perform live. However, he has also started to dip into the artist management scene. The Juno nominee is currently working with country singer Leanne Pearson. “She’s a 23-year-old with just an incredible amount of energy on stage,” Pritchett says. “She just has real potential in the industry and I want to try to help her get to some places that I’ve been and even further, which would be great.” “It’s a lot of fun because it’s a challenge I’ve never had,” Pritchett adds. Aside from his passion for country music, Pritchett is also an avid hockey fan. “I am a huge Canucks fan. I was the kid that slept with the little transistor radio under my pillow,” he says. Pritchett believes the Canucks’ new head coach, John Tortorella, will be a good fit for the team. “I think he’s fantastic. I think it’s a good thing that he’s here to be honest,” he says. “At first I didn’t know if it was a good idea, but I think he’s going to be able to take the focus off the players. The media will be looking for sound bites from him as opposed to beating up Daniel and Henrik.” For more information on Aaron Pritchett visit aaronpritchett.com or follow him on twitter @AaronPritchett.

“My goal was to be every drummer for every band. I wanted to be the guy who was capable of fitting into any slot instantaneously. That was my crazy-ass goal.” In the early 1990s, he became Spirit of the West’s first drummer, leaving him free from having to match the beats laid out by the last guy. “I had complete freedom to invent what the drums might do,” he says. After working with acts like Long John Baldry and an incarnation of BTO featuring Tim Bachman (“I often wondered if there were a Zeppo and Gummo Bachman somewhere in the woodwork,”) Ditrich elected to stick with his new band. “They’re really exemplary people. They’re smarter than the average bear, they’re more artistic than the average bear, and they’re idealists.” They were also an exception to many of the groups he’d seen who were “knock-off American bands.” “I thought, ‘Is it not possible to do something of value that is actually reflective of the culture that I come from so that it’s honest?’ I thought if I could find that, I would stick to that and try and be one of the voices of my generation if I could,” he says. “This was delivered to me on a silver platter in essence, and so I said, ‘I’m not letting go of this. As long as they’ll have me, I’ll stay.’”

Special events and festivals manager for the District of West Vancouver for the last five years, Rosta is charged with overseeing the municipality’s upcoming annual Harmony Arts Festival, and apparently whenever the topic is raised among her fellow organizers, it’s immediately kiboshed, their fingers crossed for sunny skies. “We don’t talk about it until it comes,” she laughs. The 23rd edition of the Harmony Arts Festival is being held Friday, Aug. 2 through to Sunday Aug. 11 and looking through the program, it’s easy to see why. Programmers have clocked countless hours putting this year’s lineup together and the annual celebration of music, performance, cinema, visual and culinary arts, all being presented along West Vancouver’s waterfront and offering something for all ages, is bursting at the seams. “I really enjoy seeing everyone come down to the waterfront and socialize, appreciate and enjoy the art and enjoy the music. It’s very festive,” says Rosta, 39. One of the popular features of the festival is its Art Market. A total of 80 artists, some new and returning, and from throughout the Lower Mainland, Sea to Sky corridor and Vancouver Island, will be featured this year. Each weekend of Harmony Arts will see 53 artists exhibited along Argyle Avenue, between 14th and 16th streets. Mediums include painting, jewelry, metal, leather, glass,

Jewelry designer displaying several collections at fest From page 28 ceramic, textile, wood and photography. “It’s an amazing lineup this year. It’s high quality, alloriginal, one-of-a-kind pieces,” says Rosta. The Art Market jury faced a tough decision this year, seeing 188 artisans apply. “We had jury members, art professionals from West Vancouver, and they spent an entire day going through all of the different applications,” says Rosta. Among those chosen was West Vancouver jewelry designer Chi Cheng Lee of Chi’s Creations. Born in Taiwan, Lee, 51, moved to New York when she was nine. Raised in an artistic family, her late father, Hung Chu Lee, made Chinese watercolour painting on silk, and her sister is a New York City-based fine artist. Lee honed her craft at Parsons School of Design, graduating in 1985. Making jewelry for 30 years, she also worked for luxury design house Harry Winston for 15 years, both in New York and Hong Kong. Lee and her husband have called the North Shore home for the last 10 years. At the Art Market, Lee will be selling a variety of pieces,

CHI Cheng Lee handcrafts from sterling silver, and various karats and colours of gold. which she handcrafts from sterling silver, and various karats and colours of gold, adorning them with pearls, semi-precious and precious stones, as well as diamonds. She’ll have pieces on display from her Stacking Rings collection, which are designed to be fun to wear and offer buyers an opportunity to wear them alone or interchangeably with others from the collection. Lee also plans to exhibit some pieces from her Balance Collection, designed to keep wearers grounded. “I always find it’s very important for people to have emotional connection to pieces

that they buy or that they wear because it’s so personal,” says Lee. “I would like people to wear a lot of my pieces every day, like I wear every day. There are certain things that I wear all the time. It just makes me feel together and dressed and balanced. That’s the emotion that makes people feel good. It shouldn’t take over you, it should complement you. . . . I go for the very simple elegance and low-key, but you can be dramatic but not over the top because you should also see the person too, behind it or wearing it, so it becomes a part of you.” While Lee took last year off, she was featured in the Harmony Arts Festival Art Market the previous five years. “I’ve always loved the festival,” says Lee. “We used to go to the festival even before I was selling there. There’s a lot of activities for my daughter, she was very young. There’s lots of music, lots of free activities, and there’s a very family (atmosphere) and you meet your friends.” “It’s so beautiful to do the show. It’s the best place to be, by the beach,” she adds. For more information on this year’s Harmony Arts Festival, visit harmonyarts.ca. For more information on Chi’s Creations, visit chiscreations.com.

The summer weather this year has been fabulous and great weather for picnics. On a perfect, balmy, evening during West Vancouver’s annual Harmony Arts Festival Aug.2-11 2013, I had the pleasure of attending the Best of the West gourmet food and wine grazing event on the Ambleside Pier, at the foot of 14th St. and Argyle Ave, where 13 North Shore restaurants paired food with 13 BC wineries. Whiteclothed tables were scattered along the wharf and a 3 piece band played as we “noshed and sippedâ€?! Exec. Chef Carol Chow and her team from FraĂŽche Restaurant, had personally smoked a loin of lamb and garnished it with a porcini mushroom purĂŠe, shallot mousse and rosemary oil and paired it with the red, 2011 Road 13 Seventy-four K wine with aromas of blackberry, plum and dark chocolate. To a New Zealander or Australian, a delicious, final course, after a lamb meal is pavlova, their national meringue dessert. Well Pastry Chef Maile Deligianis, from Carmelo’s Ristorante certainly delivered that by showcasing her “ perfect pavâ€? with a twist! It was a double chocolate pavlova with freshly whipped cream topped with chocolate sprinkles and strawberries, accompanied with the 2010 Burrowing Owl Cabernet Franc with a balanced nose of blackberries, cherries, herbs and cedar. For my seafood kick, Mangia E Bevi Ristorante offered ravioli stuffed with scallops and apple topped with lobster, fresh tomato and vermouth.. I liked the harmonizing with the lemon, honey and lime notes of the 2012 Tantalus Riesling. Back on shore, along Argyle Ave., during both weekends, 83 artists, under canvas, gave us the pleasure of viewing and buying their original works. Carver Rick Harris, or Xwa-lack-tun, showed me the dorsal fin of a whale and a salmon and raven, etched in his cedar guitar. Eric Munshaw and wife Edna Hobbs, from the Entwood Turnings, created hand-made bowls, goblets and platters with exceptional grains and imprints from wood, salvaged in the Chilliwack River Valley. Rebecca Fisher fashioned compostable, garden hats, whose seeds embedded in their eco millinery

would sprout, once these lavish head-covers had no further use and were tossed to glamorously, fertilize the garden! It was such a pleasant interlude, out of the noonday sun, to pop into the Ferry Building Landing, for one of the Art Speaks Series where photographer Peter Langer, not only showed us outstanding photos of Yemen, but gave us advice on taking improved travel photos. Yes, those wrinkles on older faces do show a life well lived! The Grosvenor Waterfront Lounge, in Millennium Park, provided a front-row seat for sippers, as a cruise ship sailed by on her way to Alaska. There were bands playing here as well as in Lawson Park, where folk were happily lounging or dancing on the grass to the daily garden concerts, ranging from the Spirit of the West, the Brothers’ Arntzen Brass Band, the Paperboys and Dal Richards’ Orchestra. Following the musical shows, as the sun set, films such as Funny Girl and Grease were shown. The Harmony Arts Festival has something for everyone. Do go next year.

MARINE REPORT

The bummer about boat races is that, unless you have a seat onboard, you miss most of the action. Not so for the Nanaimo Marine Festival, where tons of fun happens right on the shore, thanks to a street fair, beer garden, kiddie carnival and Vancouver Island’s biggest summertime fireworks display. And because no marine fest is worth its salt without plenty of wave-
