John Gogo - Coal & Wood Show
This engaging one-man show written and performed by John Gogo revisits the gritty mining and logging towns of Vancouver Island on Canada’s rugged western coast. Haunting folk tales by four generations of a Nanaimo pioneer family offer a fascinating look beneath the surface of history unfolded from 1895 to 1995. Their songs explore the unique and layered lives of heroes and villains: the visionary Finns of Sointula, the notorious Dunsmuirs, labour martyr Ginger Goodwin, the ghost of Clarence Ballance and the infamous Brother XII of De Courcy Island.
