Tickets on sale now

Qualicum Beach resident William Mimnaugh (aka WiL) will be performing at the Errington War Memorial Hall this Friday.

Tickets are $20 at Cranky Dog Music in Parksville, Heaven on Earth in Qualicum Beach, Errington General Store and at the Errington Hall.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 30 with the concert starting at 8 p.m.

The Calgary-raised, Qualicum Beach-based singer-songwriter recently wrapped up his sixth studio album which was recorded and produced entirely at his home studio called ‘The Box in the Woods.’

The six song EP, which Mimnaugh said is free of inhibition and genre restriction, is a standalone collection of music simply titled Songs.

“As with my last album El Paseo, a few of these songs were actually born from commercial ideas worked on under extremely tight deadlines, a process that I have surprisingly found works extremely well for me,” Mimnaugh said.

Tonight, for example, was born over a few hours with guidance from Alec Harrison for a feature film called Night Pond. And Our Song was a commercial demo developed with my mentor Dan McManus who possesses an uncanny ability for helping me discern and discover what best serves the song.”

Joining Mimnaugh for the Sept. 20, will be Keith Gallant on drums and Lena Birtwistle on keys and vocals.
