Recorded at The Garrison (Venus Fest Winter Solstice Celebration), December 21, 2017.

Ora Cogan - Darling

Jennifer Castle's solstice celebration, long a seasonal highlight, was co-presented this time 'round as part of Venus Fest's monthly concert series. Opening the night was folky Montréal-via-Vancouver singer/songwriter Ora Cogan, whose exploratory lyrics and nimble guitar playing made her a sympathetic pairing with the headliner. Crickets, her new album (out on local label Hand Drawn Dracula) adds some synthy textures to the songs, but on stage she was accompanied only by a rhythm section, fighting to be heard by a crowd that beyond the first few rows was sadly uninterested in discovering something new. True heads know, though, so it was no surprise to see Castle at the side of the stage, head down, eyes closed, receiving the vibes.
