Folk Music Society fundraiser coming up this weekend at Trinity Church

The society has been bringing musical entertainment to the Sooke community since 1992.

The Sooke Folk Music Society will be hosting a fundraiser this weekend to help its initiative on keeping music local and affordable.

The society has been bringing musical entertainment to the Sooke community since 1992, with the musical season running from September to June.

The SFMS Concert Series presents professional musicians from across Canada and the U.S., allowing folks in the Sooke region to enjoy well known acts right in their own backyard.

The monthly Coffee House Series, held the third Saturday of the month, is a two-part event.

The first part is an open mic, a time for local talent to have the opportunity to perform in front of a supportive audience.

After a brief intermission to socialize with local music lovers over a cup of tea and sweet treat, the second part is reserved for accomplished musicians, either local or from the Vancouver Island region.

All of this is organized by a group of volunteers, but SFMS needs financial support to keep it alive and well in bringing great music at an affordable price to Sooke.

Entertainment will be provided by:  Gals I Like, Zac Doeding Band, Taylor Casperson and friends, Group Therapy, Dave Gallant with special guests, and Ozmosis.

Admission is $10 with all proceeds going towards the SFMS.

The event will be on Feb. 20, at the Anglican Trinity Church, 1962 Murray Rd.

Doors open at 7 p.m., entertainment starts at 7:30 p.m.
