Scott Cook’s January Variety Show: The name explains itself, and the happy details include guest performances from California’s Justin Farren and North Carolina’s Jonathan Byrd, as well as the thoughtful and provocative music of the not-so-wandering-lately Cook himself.

It’s going to be a frosty day outside, so Saturday’s concert is probably just what you need with a hot mug of tea or cider.

Fill My Cup: Local musical powerhouse Kimberley MacGregor has an album coming out next month, so to get you excited about that she’s released a lovely video directed by Heather Hatch of two girls dancing in the river valley with psychedelic drawings by local Doukhobor artist Lisa Rezansoff floating around in the background.

The hilarious Caroline Stokes also makes an appearance in this winter wonderland, as does as a to-die-for tea setting. The song is a lovely, straightforward rocker, and her album Sitting, With Uncomfortable Feelings is out Feb. 5, look for the review in the Journal soon!

Morozko (1964): Having a large-number birthday on Saturday, so to deflect I’d like to give you the present of some wild Russian culture to enjoy, and for free!

This 1964 weirdo masterpiece by director Alexander Rou is the swirling fairy tale of boastful Prince Ivan crossing paths with beautiful Nastya, whose stepmother is doing everything to marry off her awful daughter. The title means Father Frost, who appears about halfway through the film amid a cast of characters including a magic mushroom, a miserable talking bear and a seemingly harmless Baba Yaga, living in her roving hut on chicken legs.

The production design, colours, music, makeup and especially costumes are staggeringly lovely, so find yourself the time to watch this over the weekend — and it’s definitely suitable for children! 119 minutes.
