Treat yourself to an afternoon of live music at the Parksville Seniors Centre this Saturday, October beginning at 1:30 p.m. Singer-songwriter Kenneth Paul Cooper will be performing the songs and stories that helped shape his life in an intimate, acoustic performance. Cooper brings his show, aptly titled The Time Has Come, to Parksville as part of a mid-island tour.
The show pays homage to Cooper’s long-time love of and dedication to songwriting, and features several songs from his 2014 album This Lovers Dance. For those who know Cooper, and for those who don’t yet, you can rest assured that the performance is not without great humour and a well-crafted narrative. Though the focus of the performance is his music, Cooper offers observations on the creative process, the factors associated with the art of songwriting, and shares stories about the many people, places and events that were the inspiration behind his songs.
He is renowned for his ability to establish a warm rapport with audiences
Tickets are available for $10 ($7 for members) at The Parksville Seniors Centre, 144 Middleton Avenue. Doors open at 1 pm and the show will begin at 1:30. For more info, call 250-248-3200.
