A provocative songwriter and musician is performing at the Acoustic Cafe on Friday, December 6.

Dennis Lakusta touches on a variety of issues and events in his music, including Wall Street, the environment, aboriginal issues, the human spirit, children and he even brings in some humour from time to time.

The roots and folk music player released his latest CD last year called Zeitgeist 2012, stripping down the music to a couple guitars, bass and vocals with Gerry Barnum, Terry Porter and Nancy Taylor.

At the Acoustic Cafe Lakusta will be accompanied by local musician Gerry Barnum.

The Qualicum Acoustic Cafe happens on the first Friday of every month at the Rotary House, located at 211 Fern Rd West, at the corner of Beach Rd. The first half of the show is open mic, and following intermission, the feature act.

Tickets are $5 available from the Vintage Candy Shop in Qualicum Beach, and youth are free. Seating is limited.

 

Those interested in playing open mic contact John Beaton at jabeaton@gmail.com or Dave Barta at dbarta@shaw.ca.
