Gary Fjellgaard celebrates his 75th birthday this year and is touring as energetically as ever.

The Juno award winner and Canadian Country Music Hall of Famer will bring his brand of music to Brentwood Bay on May 23.

He will be on tour with old friends with whom he shared 10 years on the road, Saskia and Darrel, an award-winning country/celtic/folk duo from Courtenay.

Fjellgaard is bringing his latest album The Collection, recorded at a church in Nanaimo. It’s an all acoustic album crowning years of song writing. Saskia and Darrel are also sporting a brand new album Songbirds (recorded in Duncan)made locally with the help of many Vancouver Island musicians.
