Saturday June 20th 12PM - 2PM with Carey J. Buss

Posted: June 18th, 2015

Carey J. Buss is a Manitoba-based singer-songwriter. He writes guitar-driven folk music in hopes of sonically emulating the freedom of the Canadian territory, which has been compared to a cross between Fleet Foxes and Stan Rogers. He has released two EP’s, the newest of which drops in May of 2015 at the Times Change(d), and is entitled “Answer The Bell”. Carey will be touring the EP throughout the summer and fall of 2015, so look for him in a town near you!

After studying under Kaki King for a week-long guitar workshop, and later going through another band breakup with blues-rock outfit Slam Panda, Carey J. Buss decided to give things a shot out on his own. He recorded his debut EP, "Haunted", in 2013; from there, Carey set to work gigging as much as possible in Winnipeg and the surrounding area, to continue to build his sound. Over 70 gigs later, including a tour of Western Canada in spring of 2014, Carey has emerged with a much more defined sound and stage act.

Market Spotlight On: Ahoy Bags

Posted: June 18th, 2015

The Public Market is happy to welcome back Ahoy Bags, from Jens & Nelly of Ucluelet. They are constantly creating new styles so come check them out this Saturday. Here is what they have to say about their creations:
One of a kind!
Our bags are reclaimed from decommissioned (vintage) sails, locally designed and handcrafted here on the West Coast. During the design process we carefully consider every repair patch, re-seamed section, tear or stain, as these bags will proudly carry them to tell their story of past achievements out on the Ocean.
AHOY BAGS, that's us! Jens & Nelly Heyduck, two young professionals living and producing bags in Tofino and Ucluelet.
If you missed us at the Tofino market, you’re welcome to visit our studio by appointment.
