Acoustic artist to play at Char’s Landing

Nanaimo acoustic singer-songwriter Sean Patton will play at Char’s Landing on March 4.

Char’s Landing will welcome the fresh and fascinating Sean Patton for a concert on Saturday, Mar. 4.

A driven musician resisting convenient pigeonholing with all his might, Patton is new artist in the acoustic arena. A unique songwriter of rare emotional impact, Patton appears to be an understated presence onstage, but from beneath the quiet exterior come extraordinary songs of deep-seated universal connection.

Born and raised in Nanaimo, Patton is preparing for the forthcoming full-length release, Things You Didn’t Want to Hear, for Mighty Speck Records, while also playing bass guitar in Nanaimo’s psychedelic Wide Eyed. The new 9-song album is totally unadorned, stripped back to acoustic guitar and vocals to reveal the raw emotions of its lyrical content. The album was approached as if it was to be Patton’s last recording, and the consequent urgency crackles through every intense vocal performance.

The concert at Char’s will run from 8-10 p.m. Tickets are $10 at Char’s.
