Watch for the Wild Cellist

It's a whole new season for the Acoustic Cafe in Qualicum Beach

The Qualicum Acoustic Cafe is kicking off a new season of entertainment, starting this Friday, Oct. 5.

The Wild Cellist, otherwise known as Corbin Keep, will perform as the feature act in the small but intimate venue, bringing a host of styles from rock to classical.

Keep is known for his outrageous humor and enthusiastic showmanship, often astounding people with what he can do on his cello.

Keep was the Acoustic Cafe’s first feature back in 2008 and is happy to be returning, he said.

The Acoustic Cafe is held on the first Friday of every month at the Rotary House in Qualicum Beach at 211 Fern Road West.

The evening starts with open stage acts at 7:30 p.m., followed by an intermission where coffee and dessert will be available. The feature act follows intermission and the show wraps up around 10 p.m. Tickets are $5 from the Vintage Candy Shop on Second Ave. in Qualicum Beach. Youth and children get in free of charge.
