The society is also wishing all of its “folkies” and everyone in the Sooke community a very happy holiday season and all the best for the coming year.

“We want to thank all of you who come out and support live music here in Sooke,” said Coffee House coordinator Dave Gallant. “We will continue in our efforts to bring the best in entertainment to our community.”

Gallant added that it’s been a good year with lots of fine music including its first concert of the season with Cindy Church and Nathan Tinkham, and is looking forward to more excellent music for 2017.

To show its Christmas spirit as well, the Society will also support the Sooke Food Bank and would request everyone to bring along one or more non-perishable food items at the time of the Coffee House concert.

“Be sure to bring along your singing voices,” Gallant said.
