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.

Head over to our YouTube channel to watch other videos in the series!  Tune in to CBC Radio the next 3 Monday mornings (including tomorrow) at 8:15am to hear the audio of the newest Empty Room track on the Morning Edition with Sheila Coles.

Behind The Songs with Jason Plumb, Keiran Semple and Poor Nameless Boy, Feb. 21, Doors at 7:30, $10

BTS circle croppedBehind The Songs is a monthly concert series that features Canadian songwriters in a songwriters circle format.  We take songwriters from various backgrounds, put them on stage, and encourage them to share with the audience their songs, the stories behind the songs, and a bit about their writing process.  This intimate format enables the audience to feel closer to the songwriters and to learn more about them and their creative process.  You don’t have to be a songwriter to enjoy this, as long as you enjoy music, this event is for you!

Each month features three or four songwriters on stage, and this month, we’ve got Jason Plumb, Keiran Semple and Poor Nameless Boy.  Following the performance, there will be an open stage, where anyone is welcome to share one or two of their own songs.  Join us for this special night of music and story-telling, and in welcoming these three talented songwriters and performers to the stage… they will be on from 8 pm to 9:30, with our open mic session to follow.  Doors open at 7:30 pm.  $10 Admission.  Click “read more” or scroll down to pre-purchase tickets.  Tickets also available at the door.  (Next month’s “Behind the Songs” is on March 21.)
