Halloween dance at Errington Hall

Locarno, a Latin and world music group, will be back at Errington Hall on Oct. 28 at 8 p.m. for a Halloween dance.

Dress up in your best Halloween costume this Friday for an all-ages dance at Errington War Memorial Hall.

Locarno, a Latin and world music group, will be back at Errington Hall on Oct. 28 at 8 p.m. for a Halloween dance.

Locarno is the Latin project of Juno award-winning musician Tom Landa. The music is equal parts Mexican and Canadian.

In 2006, Landa was awarded a Canada Council grant to study traditional Mexican music in Veracruz, Mexico.

Since their first album, the band has honed in their sound and incorporated more influences from Colombia, Africa, Mexico, Venezuela and Brazil.

Locarno released their second album Luz Y Sombra in November 2015. It features 10 original songs and two traditional Mexican folk songs.

Tickets are available at Cranky Dog Music in Parksville, Errington General Store or Heaven on Earth in Qualicum Beach for $20 or $5 for children 12 and under. Visit www.erringtonhall.ca for more information.
