Dan Bern is best known for his prolific songwriting and electric live persona. He has released eighteen albums since 1997 and built a loyal following based on prodigious touring and output of songs in all forms. Since 2007, Bern has also focused his talent and sharp wit on writing songs for movies and other projects. He composed over a dozen songs for the Jake Kasdan/Judd Apatow spoof-biopic Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and composed songs included in Apatow’s Get Him to the Greek, starring Russell Brand. Bern’s song One Dance was also included in Kasdan’s first film Zero Effect starring Bill Pullman, Ben Stiller, and Ryan O’Neal. Bern wrote a number of the songs in Walk Hard and Get Him to the Greek with fellow songsmith Mike Viola. He has also written with Marshall Crenshaw, Peter Himmelman, Greg Prestopino and many others.

Bern wrote Swing Set, a duet with Emmylou Harris, for the off-Broadway production of Family Week directed by Jonathan Demme and wrote the title song for Demme’s documentary Jimmy Carter: Man From Plains. In 2007, his album Breathe won Best Folk/Singer-Songwriter at the Sixth Annual Independent Music Awards. He has toured with Marshall Crenshaw, Ani DiFranco, and John C. Reilly’s country-infused band and in 2011 he contributed original songs for the television series Hellcats. In 2012 Dan Bern released three records: the critically acclaimed Drifter; an 18-song celebration of baseball entitled Doubleheader; and Wilderness Song, a cycle of songs adapted from the journals and letters of the legendary western wanderer Everett Ruess. In addition to his own touring, Bern leads songwriting workshops, does shows for kids, and writes books, including the forthcoming detective series, “Ten Thousand Crappy Songs & Other Stories.”

Vancouver's own T.Nile will open the evening with music from her new album Tingle and Spark.

Tamara Nile (Roots, Americana, Indie Folk)

"Come from Galiano Island with a banjo on her knee, Vancouver's Tamara Nile could well be the biggest roots noise out of these very rootsy parts since Neko Case and the Be Good Tanyas. Produced with the gifted Adam Popowitz, this is earthy as mushrooms, but Nile is no mere campfire girl, possessing formidable writing and singing chops. The openin... more info
