Barbara Carter is a musician, poet, and an arts advocate and educator. Her work has appeared in many places including Poetry Pause, the YouTube channel of the Global Peace Alliance, RCLAS magazine, emerge 19, and The Poetry of Art at Kariton Art Gallery. She is an alumnus of SFU’s The Writers Studio, and in addition to poetry, she is working on a memoir of her early years in the Maritimes, Growing Up Army, an historical novel set in Vancouver 1914. As well, she is collaborating on several projects fusing poetry with the visual arts, jazz, and improvised music. A mother, lover of all things creative, and coddler of two little white dogs, Barbara acknowledges with gratitude that she is living and creating on the traditional unceded territories of the Semiahmoo First Nation and the broader territory of the Coast Salish Peoples in White Rock.

Cannibal Fae Of Waking Dream – Surrey Muse

Once, faeries perched upon a tree enjoying the weather when humans came to watch. The Fae decided to play a prank, and so they began to feast on one another engaging in faux acts of cannibalism. Disgusted, the humans left. The faeries continued as before, this time, singing sweet songs of beauty. Thus the Cannibal Fae Of Waking Dream.’

Cannibal Fae Of Waking Dream is a gothic music group that began in 2016 in New York’s borough of Queens. Their latest releases include a track and EP Psychward Zombie, the track Catharsis; a track with artist Feral Confetti, and, another with the Odd Mother. Some of their influencers are Switchblade Symphony, Sisters Of Mercy, Android Lust, and the bands such as Type O Negative, Rasputina, Emilie Autumn and Nine Inch Nails. Aside from music, the group members like to paint, make dolls, and fix miscellaneous instruments. The group was founded by Katherine Wakefield (guitar/synth, composer/producer) and Eurithia Tachinidae (Keyboardist/Composer, writer), most recently, Reggie Smith joined as a rhythm guitarist. Waking Dream will be performing at the Delancey soon.
