singer songwriter and guitar player Geoff Noble performs songs about British Columbia history.

Geoff Noble comes from Yorkshire, England, where he began playing in folk clubs and cabarets at the age of 15. He moved to Vancouver in 1978 and, among other accomplishments, is the resident entertainer at the Maritime Museum. Fascinated by the history of his adopted home, Geoff began writing songs of people, places and events in the history of B.C. In April he released an album entitled Heroes and Monuments of British Columbia. In addition to his historical material and his more contemporary songs, Geoff is a fine interpreter of traditional British music and is also an experienced Morris dancer in the Bucknell (Cotswold) tradition. He is currently using his original material on a project for the federal government.
