Location: The Cottage Bistro
4468 Main Street Vancouver, BC V5V 3R2
Hosts: Bonnie Nish, and Sita Carbonni 

Every so often you meet someone in life who stuns you with his brilliance, humility and kindness. David Campbell is one such soul. I first met David over 10 years ago at a Twisted Poets event. Back then he would play his magic as well as read. David is an accomplished singer/song writer born in Guyana, South America, and is of Arawak Indian and Portuguese ancestry. He had his first break in the UK with a recording contract. He later moved to Canada where he decided he was happier producing his own work and having control over his art and life. He has toured, and appeared on radio and television in several countries and has 300 videos and counting, on YouTube, mainly of original songs. Besides being an accomplished musician, David is a prolific writer and visual artist. His work often brings us back to his first nations roots and speaks of his homeland, world issues, relationships and spirituality. David brings to all his work the kind of touching humanity that reaches us all. He is a deep dear soul who once having touched you with his heart, stays with you forever. David is the recipient of the World Poetry Life Time Achievement Award (2004). These are just a few of the reasons we will be honouring David on February 27th 7-9:30 pm at Twisted Poets at the Cottage Bistro. I hope you will come out to share in an evening that should be full. David will read, others will toast and there will be cake.
