Meredith Luce and Jim Bryson at the GCTC

March 14th, 2009

Last Sunday was a memorable evening at the Great Canadian Theatre Company. I will sheepishly admit that it was my first time setting foot into the building, but I hope it won’t be my last. The café there is run by the drool-inducing Thyme & Again. The stage housed a quaint mid-century kitchen, which was there because of the current play at the theatre. And the sound was absolutely outstanding.

We were there to watch two of our local favourites play a show as part of a series called “Acoustic Waves”, run by the Ottawa Folk Festival.

Meredith Luce kicked things off with an Emm Gryner / Cyndi Lauper mash-up — as a challenge from cbc host Alan Neal. Her set was terrific, and left me wishing it could’ve been longer.

And then Jim Bryson came along, putting to use the array of instruments and gadgets that lay amidst the kitchen appliances — a veritable one-man show. (Though he did get some audience participation by handing out handmade shakers, made of mini ginger ale cans, organic rice and duct tape…)

The show’s highlights will be aired on CBC2’s Canada Live, and will eventually be available online too.

Overall, a great night, and encouragement to go out and get a little more cultured. What an amazing space the GCTC is!
