Coco Love Alcorn and Ian Sherwood roll into town for Folk Music Society gig

New location for folk music concert on Sunday, May 10

Ian and Coco perform for the Sooke Folk Music Society on May 10.

Please note that for this occasion only our concert is being held on Sunday, May 10, at Sooke Baptist Church, 7110 West Coast Road.

Hey Sooke folkies, it’s time for the final concert in the Sooke Folk Society’s Concert Series (not to be confused with our monthly Coffee House of which there two more). For our final concert we are excited to be presenting the dynamic duo of Coco Love Alcorn and Ian Sherwood.

As a performer, Coco Love Alcorn is always in the moment; joyful and genuine, soulful and compelling. Alcorn sings joyful soul; a combination of her diverse musical influences including jazz, pop, R&B and folk. Her voice is hailed as extraordinary. Alcorn has gained an incredible and loyal fan-base while touring across Canada numerous times. Over the years she has worked with a diverse and notable list of artists including Ani DiFranco, Burton Cummings, 54•40, Chantal Kreviazuk, Jesse Cook, and Kinnie Starr. Her latest album Joyful (Sound of Pop/Fontana North) is a sparkling alloy of jazz, soul and contemporary folk melded seamlessly into Alcorn’s own distinctive and unique sound.

Everywhere To Go is Ian Sherwood’s latest studio creation. The album is considered to be his best to date and is chalk-full of instantly appealing hooks and singable choruses while sitting comfortably in Sherwood’s signature style of imaginative, narrative writing.

Sherwood is a musician, story teller and a constant creator. Bob Mersereau of CBC Radio, Fredericton described him as “… a natural performer who entertains as much with his wit and stories as with his songs.”

Starting his music career as an in-demand saxophone player in Toronto, Sherwood soon began looking for an outlet for his poetic side. His unique musicianship combined with his tales of heart-break, victory and adventure quickly gained recognition as a solid performer, lyricist and player.

You are not going to want to miss this lively, quirky duo. There are several videos on Youtube of these two performing. Check them out. It all happens for this occasion only on Sunday, May 10 at Sooke Baptist Church, 7110 West Coast Road. Doors open at 7:30 pm with the concert starting at 8.

Tickets are available at the door or in advance at Sooke Shoppers Drug Mart.
