Katrina Bishop Concerts at the Whittle in Wolfville and Sea-Esta in Delhaven
By Mike Butler
I’ve just been introduced to a fabulous musician who happens to be coming to the Valley this month, and you should all make time to go see her.
Katrina Bishop is stopping by the Al Whittle Theatre in Wolfville on Saturday October 20 to promote her CD Hopscotch, filled with songs about wine and cheese, bad drivers, muffins, and rain, among other things. It’s going to be a wonderful evening spearheaded by this very talent lady, along with her special guest, Jeff Jodrey.
When speaking with Katrina, she also mentioned another special concert stop: “I’ll be performing on Friday, October 12 at Sea-Esta in Delhaven, a 55-seat house concert setting that’s open to the public for ticket purchases. She’ll also be performing in Halifax at the Scotiabank Stage of Neptune Theatre for a Sunday matinée on October 14. The show will be “a bit of a concert/tea party,” Katrina says, “with free coffee, tea, and sweets to have in the theatre.”
As mentioned, Jeff Jodrey will be performing opening sets at both the Neptune show and the Al Whittle show, so you get two artists to entertain you. Jeff is an amazing guitarist, a 2016 EMCA nominee, and an all-round super nice guy. He also happens to be Katrina’s second cousin, so she’s pretty stoked that they get to share the stage!
I learned that besides being a very talented musician, Katrina was also an Apple Blossom Princess (Hantsport ’85). She also did the artwork for the Vancouver comic book Sam and Dave, and she’s a certified log home builder who’s pretty handy with a chainsaw and a crane. So, after the show if you have any questions about pageants, comics, or log homes, just ask away!
