Canterbury awakens
with cider and a roar

By ANITA CRONE
Coffee and cider poured again
as Canterbury House reopened
its w e e k e n d entertainment.
About sixty people listened to
Big Feat,a rock band from Cal-
ifornia who are completing their
first promotional tour.
According to Dan Burke. a
member of the Canterbury staff,
Canterbury is reinstating its
weekend entertainment with an
important provision. Groups will
.play for a percentage of the gate
instead of a set feet as was done
in the past. This was necessi-
tated by the loss incurred from
standard fees and insufficient
,crowds during weekend enter-
tainment.
Many students never realized
that Canterbury House had
really closed on weekends but
welcomed the return of its
friendly atmosphere and rea-
sonable prices. "It's the only
place in Ann Arbor where you
can hear live entertainment
without buying dinner or going
to a bar," said a member of the
audience. "The atmosphere can't
be beat."
Other events planned for the
future include a series of the-
atre groups, starting the last
weekend in January and con-
tinuing. through February. Local
groups will encompass every-
thing from high schools to guer-
rilla theatre. In addition to the
evening performances, there will
be workshops and some chil-
-dren's theatre.
Canterbury House has also re-
opened its soup kitchen every
noon.
Subsidized by the Episcopal
Church, C a n t e r b u r y House
started in 1965 and now houses
the Radical Film Series and has

become a community center
hosting anything from Christian
Scientists to. Radical Lesbians
as well as services on Sunday.
Most of Canterbury's activities
continued through the week last
semester even though the week-
end entertainment was discon-
tinued the first weekend in
October.
Big Feat itself is a rock band
made up of Lowell George, lead
guitar and vocals, Richard Hay-
ward, drums, Roy Estrada, bass,
and Bill Payne, keyboard. The
group has been together about a
year. George and Estrada for-
merly played with the Mothers
of Invention and Hayward has
drummed for Arlo Guthrie and
Ella Fitzgerald. This is Payne's
first experience with a rock
band and he leant the group a
great deal.
Payne has an amazing vocal
quality which really comes
through in "Taking My Time."
His voice is softer than George's
and has a better overall quality.
Big Feat started slowly last
night and after a dull first set,
climaxed by noise-lots of noise
-really got down to business in
the second set. They blended
well, and really sounded good
drowning out the almost worth-
less lyrics with a strong rock
beat.
While the atmosphere is quiet,
folky, flame lamps lighting the
tables as always, Big Feat is a
loud contradiction to the usual
Canterbury House action of sin-
gle folksingers. But the group
showed great versatility. BANG,
CLANG, SMASH - then soft,
still, country music flowing
gently across the room.
In the midst of an almost
continual loud, but at the same

time, invigorating jam, George
broke into an excerpt from
"How Still Is the Night" pro-
viding Estrada a chance to dis-
play his excellent falsetto.
Big Feat ended the second set
with "Willing," soft and really
excellent. The songs from their

album, entitled Big Feat, al-
though lacking the technical
sound of the record were the
highlights of the evening. If
they can keep the blurred sound
level down, they are able to
really provide an interesting
evening of musical contrasts.
