Welcome To The Auction!


All of the proceeds of this auction will benefit artist and community activist Dalannah Gail Bowen, to support her financial, physical and emotional recovery from two recent strokes. Dalannah Gail Bowen is a much-loved and acclaimed singer/songwriter, delighting and inspiring audiences throughout the Vancouver Lower Mainland for over thirty years. A devoted community activist, particularly on the Downtown East Side, Dalannah works tirelessly as a performer, producer and organizer for local charities.

In her early career, Dalannah played with bands opening for The Guess Who, Led Zeppelin, Taj Mahal and BB King. As a solo artist, Dalannah has performed at various festivals including the Vancouver International Jazz Festival and the Vancouver Folk Festival.  Dalannah’s  CD "Them Menz" made the Top 10  Most Played Blues Albums for Stingray Music's The Blues channel (Canada), but it is her latest work “Been Around Awhile” recorded with a simple rhythm of bass tracks by Owen  Verber that has been receiving outstanding reviews around the globe and hepled put  her in the Blues Hall of Fame last year. 

Paul Hovan of Quest Records, spoke about Dalannah’s health setback, “This is the saddest part ...just when we were seeing a glorious sunshiny day on the horizon for her along comes the rain cloud of uncertainty.”

Shortly after the 30th Annual  Blues For Christmas Benefit in Vancouver December 2015, organizer and performer Dalannah Gail Bowen was hospitalized with a stroke; and experienced a second stroke this February.  Her mobility and speech has been heavily affected and rehabilitation will be costly  Dalannah will be without her income from performing at private venues and festivals and unable to do her work at BC Hospital/Women with HIV/AIDS Talking Circles for an extended period of time. Members of the Vancouver Music Community are putting on this auction to support Dalannah Gail Bowen, a woman who has given so much to so many.
