CORBIN MURDOCH AND THE NAUTICAL MILES | IN CONCERT
12:00 am - 10:00 pm
149 W. Hastings St.
Join us for an evening performance by Corbin Murdoch and The Nautical Miles.
Corbin Murdoch is a recent SFU Alumni who completed his MFA at the School for Contemporary Arts. Murdoch began writing songs for the project in 2003 while completing his degree in creative writing and environmental studies at York University in Toronto, and pining for his west coast home. The Nautical Miles were recruited by mail correspondence, and formed during a summer back home. In their nine years together they have built a repertoire of richly textured and emotionally complex folk music. Their songs tell stories steeped in the natural and emotional histories of the Pacific-Northwest. Migratory mammals, people who swim across oceans, and long-forgotten revolutionary figures all become subjects in the narratives The Nautical Miles spin.
