In 2005, he won an ‘M’ Award in Victoria for Best Classical Performer and his recording of Firedance was included on Go West-A Vital Collection of Western Canadian Music.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and residents are encouraged to come early for a seat as the last few events have sold out. Tickets are $5 at the door and organic coffee and apple crumble will be available.
