Sooke Folk Coffeehouse heads to East Sooke this weekend

This month Dave Gallant and Norm McPherson are the featured artists

The Sooke Folk Society Coffeehouse is going on the road this month, and will take place on the Easter long weekend at the East Sooke Community Hall this Saturday (April 15).

This month Dave Gallant and Norm McPherson are the featured artists.

Gallant has played and supported music in Sooke for more than 20 years, helped found the folk society, and continues to gig at numerous locations around the Victoria region.

His recordings have been featured on CBC and he is a veteran of the early coffee house scene of Eastern Canada, where he played with many well known artists, including Ritchie Havens.

MacPherson is a Canadian guitar legend and recording artist. His credits include recordings with The Poppy Family, Skylark Band with David Foster, Burton Cummings, and Canadian troubadour Valdy, with whom he has played more than 1,500 gigs. He is also an active bassoon player with the Sooke Symphony Orchestra.

We are looking forward to the many talented musicians from East Sooke to come down for the open mic, which begins at 7:30 pm.

Doors open at 7 p.m. at the East Sooke Community Hall, 1397 Coppermine Rd. The music begins at 7:30 p.m.
