Night of Roots at Orange Hall

A musical exploration comes to Fernwood this week

A rootsy triple threat invades the Orange Hall in Fernwood this Friday evening (July 8).

On the list of performers for the night are melodic storyteller Auto Jansz, known for her work with iconic local folk group Barley Wik and Andrea June, who offers a hybrid of blues, folk and R&B.

Folk-noir troubadour James Kasper, will also hit the stage, accompanied by long-term collaborator Geoff Howe and perhaps the busiest roots percussionist in town, Brad Hawkes.

Doors for the show open at 7 p.m. at the Orange Hall, 1620 Fernwood Rd. Admission is $7 at the door.

For more information, call 250-885-5988.
