All ages concert rocks The Old Theatre in Castlegar

A special Saturday night show for the emerging stars of Supercat Studios

Kellie Walker took to the stage of The Old Theatre on Saturday, July 27 with a bass guitar as part of the band CKC — she had been playing it for only two weeks.

CKC are the initials of the first names of Walker and her bandmates, Colton Low (drums/vocals) and brother Cameron (guitar/vocals). In an incredibly short amount of time, not only did Walker learn to play the bass guitar, she also co-wrote a song and recorded a CD before performing for a small but lively crowd.

All of this was possible because of her enrolment in Supercat Studios Summer Rocks Camp.

Owner/Instructor Yanive Fenier said teaching these kids is not really a job for him.

“They’re like sponges”, he said. “They learn so fast. Colton is probably the best drummer of his age in the Kootenays.”

Colton’s brother Cameron has a strong voice and stage presence and was easily able to mix it up between songs like Kim Michell’s “Go For Soda” and ZZ Top’s “Sharp Dressed Man”.

The trio’s performance of the song they wrote, “Free’ was exceptionally well done, with lyrics that told the tale of heartbreak (see below). Fenier wasn’t kidding when he said they learn fast; the song was written in about three hours.

Fenier said he enjoys seeing the rise of talent through the summer classes and added that Castlegar is “just full of great kids.” The live show is part of the cost of the camps.

Half of the admission (by donation) from the night went to the local food bank and a number of bags of food were also donated.

“FREE” – Lyrics by Colton Low, Cameron Low and Kellie Walker:

we started off as friends

we never had to pretend

we spent time again and agian

it never seemed to end

 

like a rocket in the sky

somehow I believed I could fly

never wanting to say goodbye

then you decided to lie

 

CHORUS

 

I’m free

from the shackles of your pain

I’m free

from the misery and blame

I’m free

from the shadow deep within

I’m free

now I am free

 

I gave you all that I had

you took and you never gave back

I wish I could start again

you’d never be my friend

 

I can’t believe what you’ve done

my beating heart is gone

you built me up and tore me down

now I’m back on the ground
