Gate House Theatre is proud to present to you a unique performance by Alert Bay’s very own Garret T. Willie! Garret is a 23 year old Blues, Rock and Country-Folk Musician Artist raised in Alert Bay. At the early age of 9 Big Willie got his first guitar and by age 17 he was almost lethal with hands needing to be registered as deadly weapons. His inspirations go from Ice Cube to Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Growing up in the ruff and tuff town of Alert Bay off north Vancouver Island left him with an unquenchable thirst to set the world on fire with his own brand of Blues: Rock and “Hybrid Bluetry”. Garret T. Willie shocks crowds with a voice never heard before that sounds like gravel over honey as well as soft and sweet. Coupled with guitar playing and a performance that is out of this world, his music will bring you to your feet to cheer and to your knees in tears.
So come on down to Gate House Theatre April 15th 2023 this show is not to be missed!!

Garret T. Willie
Garret T. Willie
Garret T. Willie is an old soul masquerading as an uncommonly wise, weathered, witty and world-weary 23-year-old. He’s about to give rock ‘n’ roll a formidable 21st -century kick in the ass with plenty of wild, heartbreaking, and hilarious stories to share in true rock ‘n’ roll form.
Garret T. Willie hails from Kingcome Inlet, off the coast of British Columbia. He’s been through some serious sh*t and lived through a lot more than most of us have at his age. But while Willie’s back story also gives him more right than most to sing the blues – and at heart, Garret T. Willie is a rock ‘n’ roller – he’d rather that not be the whole story.
Willie is the personification of an open book in the lyric sheet to his upcoming debut record Same Pain. Through his songs, there’s a helluva lot of raunchy fun going on above and beyond the occasional exorcism of tragedy and trauma. To listen to Same Pain is to get to know him more than you might be aware, but also to find a friendly, sensitive voice with a gift for transmitting universal emotions. Willie gets himself, and in doing so kinda gets all of us. He also knows what makes the blues tick. And, man, can he rip it up on the guitar.
