About the event

Join us for an amazing musical evening with Le Ren!

Le Ren’s close-to-the-bone, heartbreak folk songs seem, at first, to tap into a shared musical

memory. A melody swirls forward and you’re just sure it’s known to the back of your mind; was it

in a movie you saw, some classic mid-60s set piece? Maybe it’s something you heard as a kid,

in the backseat of your mom’s Cutlass, or the shotgun seat of your own. But before you can

zero in through the fog, your heart is torn apart by her voice — rich, direct and mellifluous —

steering you through these slowburn tunes about real-life loss.

Lauren Spear, the artist behind Le Ren, created a physical quilt to mirror the assemblage of

stories that comprise her album Leftovers: a coming-of-age collage that collects over four years

of past experiences and finds their present meaning. “When I think of leftovers, I think of things

that have been cast aside,” she says. “When they’re picked back up or remembered, they can

be repurposed… Leftovers came to mean a collection of feelings and moments of the past that

still remain relevant to my present.”

This event is being held on the unceded, shared traditional territories of Penelakut, Lamalcha, Hwitslum and other Hul’qumi’num and SENĆOŦEN speaking peoples as well as the ceded territories of Tsawwassen First Nation, on what is now known as Galiano Island.
