Local musician performs new album in Sooke

Musician Adam Dobres will perform his new self-titled album at Sooke Holy Trinity Anglican Church on Sept. 8.

“It’s going to be a very peaceful, ambient-type show,” Dobres said.

Dobres was born and raised in Sooke and explained that it was important for him to come and perform in his hometown. The artist was recently nominated for Instrumentalist of the Year for the West Coast Music Awards.

“I’ve always been playing guitar in a lot of groups but this is the first time I’ve done a solo guitar album and written music by myself,” Dobres said. “And Sooke is where it all started so I wanted to come back and play for the community.”

The album took half a year to write and record, and Dobres said it was a challenge because he wrote it in a style that he hadn’t learned how to play yet. The style is called finger acoustic and incorporates different melodies and base lines all intertwined within the songs.

“It was a good challenge, and I am very proud of what came out of it,” Dobres said.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and he will play two 45-minute sets with a break in between. There will also be a concession at the show.

Tickets are $20 and can be bought at the Stick in the Mud Coffee House, Shoppers Drug Mart, as well as at the door on the night of the event.
