Lovers and friends gather for concert

Valentine's concert to feature local blues/folk performers

“Friends and Lovers A Valentines concert”  featuring  Gord Phillips, Dave Gallant, Thom and Donna Southwood and special guests,  Alberta’s amazing indie duo Deer and Coyote will take place at Holy Trinity Church on Feb. 9, 2013.

The Deer and Coyote story begins with a shy woodsman falling quietly in love with a sweet songstress.

The songstress had just completed her second album (Shed Your Shy 2010) co-produced by Chris Wynters founder of  Captain Tractor, one of Alberta’s premier indie bands.

The woodsman, who was also a master woodworker, decided to hand-craft a cello, and at the age of 30  taught himself to play it, in order to win his true love’s heart.

Not only was there a happy ending for the couple but this collaboration has produced the new indie duo Deer and Coyote and a cello that was designed, via an  8’ fiberglass octagonal cupola and an Alberta Fire Watch Tower  to allow the player to be inside the instrument. The cello has been displayed at the Khyber Arts Museum in Halifax and at the grand opening of the New Alberta Museum.

There is also a documentary, ”The wood and wave each other know” being shot featuring the sounds of the cello in use atop the tower.  Since their inception Deer and Coyote, Chanda and Dan Bosch, have shared the stage with such indie artists as Josh Garrels, Andy Shauf, Amy Seeley, Zack Pick and more.

Come out and enjoy a wonderful evening of love songs ranging from indie originals to Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Scorpions and more, all performed by Sooke’s premier folk, blues/contemporary artists.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the concert begins at 8.

Tickets are available at Shoppers Drug Mart, Stick in the Mud, EMCS program office and at the door.

Organizer Thom Southwood says the tickets are selling out quickly so there won’t be many tickets at the door.

Happy Valentines Sooke!
