The high notes of BC’S music scene

On my first day in Canada, I went to Capilano Park in North Vancouver and played my guitar out on the trails. A jogger came past and smiled – and that’s when I knew I was in the right  place,” says Salt Spring Island musician Harry Manx, whose celebrated blues, folk and Indian fusion can be heard on 11 albums. He was born in the U.K., but B.C. has been his home – and place of inspiration – since 2000.   

 

Three Waters

In reality, people don’t actually glow, but Mike McKinlay comes close, very, very close. The filmmaker just returned to Vancouver from a trip with creative partner Rob Butler to Vancouver Island, where they were filming scenes for the documentary Three Waters. Their primary purpose in Deep Bay, midway between Parksville and Comox, was to shoot a locavore dinner. Everything on the menu was made with locally grown or scavenged ingredients: wild mushrooms, winter kale chips, farm meats and cheeses, Deep Bay shellfish and – because it was still early March and it’s nice to have something green on the plate – a surprisingly delicious garnish of Grand Fir tips.
