Allison Crowe in a sing along

Internationally-heralded singer to present free out door concert

Internationally-heralded singer, songwriter and musician Allison Crowe is performing in a free outdoor concert Thursday, Dec 22, at 5 p.m. at Heritage Mews in Nanaimo’s Old City Quarter.

The community sing-along happening in the Merchant Mews and Fitzwilliam Gate area is an informal opportunity to get together with friends in an old-fashioned way, and celebrate the season with a cup of warm cocoa and some cookies. Carol song sheets will be passed out and Crowe will lead the crowd in singing five or six favourite songs of the season.

It’s part of the “Light Up A Life” campaign organized by the merchants of the Old City Quarter to aid the Haven Society. Participants are asked to donate a toy, or non-perishable food item or clothing for families in need.

Since 1978, Haven Society has been providing services to women, children, youth and families who have experienced violence.

Cookies, Cocoa & Carols takes place from 5 to 6 p.m. and when people are ready, that’s when the singalong happens.
