With Nick Faye’s performance of his song “Kansas”, season 2 of the Empty Room series comes to a close.  Nick Faye & The Deputies are a band from the deepest depths of the Canadian Prairies (Regina, SK).

They will be heading into the studio in November to record their third full length album.  For more information go to: www.nickfayedeputies.com.

With all 24 videos from this season now on YouTube, you can watch these 12 talented Saskatchewan artists perform anytime you want!  There is so much talent in our home province and we’re grateful to SaskMusic and CBC Radio for helping us share some of that talent with all of you through this series.

You’ve seen the videos of these 12 talented artists, but let’s not forget about the talented man behind the scenes – artistic director for the series Brent Nielsen!  We’d like to give a big thanks to Brent for all the hard work he has put into the series over the last two years.  As camera man, sound tech, editor, and creator of the series, Brent really does it all!

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.

Sept 23 – Regina Word Up Youth presents Saskatoon Slam Team

 

Admission is $5 + GST or PWYC (No one turned away.)
Doors at 7:30
Show around 8
All ages/+19 Cash Bar

 

Regina Word Up Youth is Regina’s only youth-specific spoken word performance series.

A Youth Stage is an opportunity to share work with our peers and greater community. No scores and all support, this event is a great opportunity for youth (14-22) who want more exposure or practice, or want to share something that doesn’t usually fit within our regular poetry slams. Rants, stories, jokes (the punnier, the better!) songs, or poems are all welcome on our stage.

Have something you want to share that we didn’t list? We love creativity, and we would probably let you perform…just ask us! Regina Word Up Youth Stage is for youth of all skill levels interested in sharing stories – of any kind. We celebrate all styles of writing and voices, and encourage our community to support these very important vessels of truth.
