How many musicians fit on the head of a pin?

For June 2013 at Spirit of Rasputin’s the answer is 27. In numerology 27 symbolizes “light in darkness” since the lunar sidereal month is 27 days. And 27 (is this a coincidence??) is the number of musicians taking the stage this month at three enlightening SoR events.

Rasputin’s Beard

Westboro Masonic Hall, 430 Churchill at Byron
Pass-the-hat in support of in support of the Ottawa Food Bank
Featuring Salton Sea, J.P. Ranger Band, and Lost Colt (three great quartets)
Our June “Beard” always focuses on families in need and the vital work the Ottawa Food Bank performs. Donations always drop off in the summer season but the need for food doesn’t change. So we try to provide as much of the one thing the Food Bank needs to fill any gap: money. All the musicians donate their time and talent. So please join us for an excellent and diverse evening of music and help us to give a little back to the community. More info…

Sunday June 23, 3p
Cabaret Matinee

Westboro Masonic Hall, 430 Churchill at Byron
Featuring Call Me Katie
Tickets $7 at the door (kids 14 and under are free)
Featuring the dynamic voice of Sarah Hill, a veteran of bands in Ontario and the Maritimes, Call Me Katie swings from sweet ballads to driving up-tempo pieces. Hill contributes fiddle as well, while award-winning poet Monty Reid sings and plays guitar and mandolin. Mike Rivoche, with groups such as the Howlin C’s and the Black Donnellys in his twangy past, holds everything together with rock-solid bass lines and chips in with harmony vocals. More info…
(if you’re keeping score, that’s 27!)

Spirit of Rasputin’s Open Stage (7p Mondays at Whispers) and Folk-along Jam (Tuesdays 7p at the Georgetown) continue weekly all summer. All our concert series resume in September with a Beard, October with Rick Fines, and November with…wait for it…Valdy!!
