On Wednesday November 13, roots artist Brock Zeman will play a unique venue—St. John’s the Evangelist located at 228 Pearl St., Thunder Bay’s oldest Anglican church. Twenty percent of all ticket sales will go directly to the St. John’s food bank and monetary donations and donations of non-perishable food items will be accepted.

With nine albums to his name and a few hundred live performances every year for almost a decade, singer-songwriter Brock Zeman is well-established as one of the Ottawa Valley’s hardest working musicians. All of this before the age of 30. Zeman has also played on stage with some of the top talent of the contemporary roots and Americana scenes, including Steve Earle, Lynn Miles, Fred Eaglesmith, Blue Rodeo, Corb Lund, Toby Keith, Prairie Oyster and the Rodeo Kings. Keith Glass of Prairie Oyster calls him, “an emerging Canadian powerhouse,” while JUNO-award winner Lynn Miles says,“he’s a master songwriter…he belongs on stage with the big boys.”

This concert promises a young, prolific singer-songwriter, a fabulous cause, and a wonderful venue on a Wednesday night. Advance tickets are available at the church office, Calico, Chaltrek and Steepers and are $25 for adults, $15 for children, and $70 for a family of four.
