The King Eddy is pleased to partner with Sled Island to present Beverly Glenn-Copeland.
A classically-trained musician, Beverly Glenn-Copeland has been writing, recording and performing music for over 40 years, including a large body of music for adults, music for film, six albums of his own songs (from folky jazz in the vein of Joni Mitchell to soulful electronic music), and four musicals for children. His songs have been performed by various Canadian artists including Rita MacNeil and Jackie Richardson, as well as by the Toronto Pops Orchestra under the direction of David Warrack.
Glenn also has a long-standing career writing music for children’s TV that includes credits on shows such as Mr. Dressup—where he spent 25 years as a recurring character—as well as Sesame Street and Shining Time Station.
His 1986 album, Keyboard Fantasies, a mixture of digital new age and (accidentally) early experimental Detroit techno, recorded using a Yamaha DX7 and Roland TR-707, and originally released on cassette tape, was reissued in 2016 as a result of his following with collectors and music heads.
After a 20 year absence from the concert stage, Glenn has resumed performing his sprawling, transformative catalogue of music with his new band, Indigo Rising.
He is also providing artist talks for audiences in his concert locations. With great joy and appreciation, Glenn acknowledges his deep connection with the younger generations that are now so enthusiastically embracing his music.
Calgary violinist and folk-electronic artist FOONYAP will open the night.
