Whistler Writers Festival 2020

Jenn Ashton Performs at Whistler Writers Festival Literary Cabaret

The 2020 Whistler Writers Festival was a virtual event for the first time in its nineteen-year history. But not even a pandemic could keep the Literary Cabaret from pulling musicians and writers together for a magic night of words and music. Host Stephen Vogler brought his band Some Assembly Required back to the stage to perform with a host of writers beamed in via Zoom for a night of improvisation, innovation and rich storytelling embellished by sweet and soulful sounds. Guest authors included Caroline Adderson, Jenn Ashton, Dakshana Bascaramurty, Jillian Christmas, Katherine Fawcett, Genni Gunn, D.A. Lockhart, Amy McDaid, David A. Robertson and Lori Rohda. Our guest musicians are Geeta Das, Musical Director, also playing trumpet, saxophone and percussion; Rajan Das on upright bass; Dean Feser on percussion; and Rosalind Steel on piano and electric keys.
