Mayworks concert at St. Annes Church

The month of May will feature a series of events in Oceanside under the title, Mayworks

Vancouver Island Mayworks is presenting Chorus and Chronicle at St. Anne’s Church in Parksville Saturday, May 19.

The evening of music will include Cumberland’s renowned historical balladeer Gordon Carter, well known for his songs about coal mining in the Comox Valley. With his innate storytelling gift, combined with a compassion for the land he lives on, Carter brings to life touching tales of his family and sings stirring original songs about social issues in the local area.

He will be joined by Nanaimo song writer and performer Keith Phillips who has been singing, playing guitar and writing songs for over 40 years. He has written over 90 songs that combine meaningful and thoughtful lyrics with a strong sense of melody and story telling.

Admission is by donation for the 7:30 p.m. performance at St. Anne’s Church 407 Wembley Road.
