Season 2 – Week #22: An Empty Room with Kara Golemba – “Puzzle”

This week brings singer-songwriter Kara Golemba to the centre of an Empty Room for a performance of her song “Puzzle”!  Found at the crossroads of Folk, Country & Americana, all Golemba needs is her crooked grin, a spark of mischief in her eyes, and a heartfelt story combined with her powerful voice to take her audience on a journey worth remembering.  As the recent winner of the 620 CKRM Proudly Saskatchewan showcase and the Spirit of Saskatchewan songwriting award for “Mason Jar of Memories” (week# 10 of Empty Room) Kara has established herself as a strong up and coming Saskatchewan singer-songwriter.  She recently released her debut 6 song EP “Every Little Light”, recorded at Studio ONE by Jason Plumb, which is available for purchase or stream on all digital platforms.  For more on Kara go to www.karagolemba.com.

Songwriter Sunday with Gabrille Papillon, Corinna Rose, and Christa Couture, July 8, Doors at 7:30, $10

Our monthly event, Songwriter’s Sunday is back and offers a stellar line-up of singer songwriters, Gabrille Papillon from Montreal, QC, Corinna Rose from Montreal, QC, and Christa Couture from Vancouver, BC.  Doors will open at 7:30 and the music will start at 8:00 pm.

Gabrielle Papillon has been singing all her life. Her concert going experiences began in the womb, when her parents attended a Grateful Dead concert. She began humming her own melodies as a toddler and, writing her first songs at fourteen as soon as she learned her basic chords on a guitar. Influenced by guitar slinging troubadours such as Ani Difranco, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and Paul Simon, her music is often about a feeling. Her muse is the amalgamation of people in her life, or an imaginary scenario. Above all she loves the journey of a song.
