Folk music duo take the stage in Sooke

Come out and watch the talented musical duo of Chris Ronald and John Ellis take the stage on Dec. 2 at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church as part of Sooke Folk Music Society’s concert series.

Roland, who immigrated from England in 2002, is a singer-songwriter living in Vancouver whose music can be described as “Canadian folk with British roots.”

Being a multi-talented musician who often includes guitar, ukulele and harmonica in his live shows, Roland delivers a unique performance.

He self-produced his first two albums, Pacific Time and Turning Tides, before joining forces with Ellis and releasing a third album called The Resulting Timeline.

The duo’s album resulted in Roland being nominated in 2014 for songwriter of the year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards.

Ellis is an award-winning steel guitarist, a multi-instrumentalist, and is always producing several albums.

Over the past decade, Ellis’ artists and productions have appeared in the Top 10 on Canadian Hot AC and Country charts, and his music can also be heard playing on TV shows such as Da Vinci’s Inquest, The Handler, and Intelligence.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with the concert beginning at 8. Tickets cost $20 at the door, or $15 in advance and can be bought at Shoppers Drug Mart in Sooke.
