Sled Island presents: Beverly Glenn-Copeland and Indigo Rising with FOONYAP

Sled Island is pleased to partner with The King Eddy to present Beverly Glenn-Copeland and Indigo Rising on Monday, September 10 at 8pm.

A classically-trained musician, Beverly Glenn-Copeland has been writing, recording and performing music for over 40 years, including a large body of music for adults, music for film, six albums of his own songs (from folky jazz in the vein of Joni Mitchell to soulful electronic music), and four musicals for children. His songs have been performed by various Canadian artists including Rita MacNeil and Jackie Richardson, as well as by the Toronto Pops Orchestra under the direction of David Warrack.
