Musicians pay tribute to Taylor Swift during acoustic concert

Nanaimo musicians perform commercial pop hits of Taylor Swift at the Dinghy Dock Pub Saturday (Nov. 26).

Nanaimo musicians are delving into the commercial pop genre and putting their own stamp on the music during an upcoming acoustic tribute to Taylor Swift concert.

The concert is Saturday (Nov. 26) at 7 p.m. at the Dinghy Dock Pub and features performances by Nat, Paul Cimolini, Joanne Eva and Chelsea Edwardson. Edwardson said she got involved in the concert because her friends Cimolini and Nat were involved.

While commercial pop isn’t her chosen genre, Edwardson said she gained an appreciation for the songs.

“It’s been a really neat transformative thing and I did gain appreciation for the music and hearing from colleagues how they made the songs their own,” she said.

Edwardson performs folk, soul and R&B music. She particularly favours soul.

“I think it has substance. I think you get to dig in a bit more with emotion and create more depth with the soundscape,” said Edwardson.

Tickets are $20, which includes a round-trip ferry ride, and are available in advance from Lucid, Desire Tattoo, the pub and
