Local Artists Series: An Evening of Readings and Music

Join us Thursday December 10 at Outpost Coffee Roasters for an evening of classical guitar from Sol Younan and selected readings by Andrew J. Simpson. The event will begin promptly at 7:00pm, so grab a drink and a seat around 6:30. There isn't a cover charge, but donations will be accepted on a pay-what-you-can basis. Register on our facebook page to reserve your spot!

Want to know more? Here's a little background info on our featured artists, Andrew J. Simpson and Sol Younan:

Andrew J. Simpson

Andrew J. Simpson is the author of two short story collections The Big Picture (2013), and the Leacock Medal nominated new release Heaven's Gone to Hell, both from BareBack Press. His humorously dystopic stories, unlike anything you've read before, use the very turns of phrase that we take for granted against us, as people literally chase dreams, seize days and tackle the world's problems.


In addition to his two collections, Andrew's work has appeared in various journals including Scrivener Creative Review, Archenemy Magazine, and Cosmonauts Avenue. He is a regular contributor to the National Magazine Award winning satirical review Feathertale, and host of the Toronto-based reading series Words at the Wise.

Sol Younan

In addition to Undergraduate work at the University of Windsor, Sol also holds an A.R.C.T Diploma in Guitar Pedagogy from the Royal Conservatory of Music, where he studied with one of Canada’s leading guitarists and composers, William Beauvais.

Active as a performer, Sol regularly performs as a soloist and accompanist along with singers and other instrumentalists, in the greater Toronto area.

Along with his work as a performer, Sol is an experienced and compassionate teacher.  He has coordinated private and group guitar programs in Windsor, Toronto, and most recently, in Sacramento, California.
