Get your dancing shoes ready and your kitchen floor waxed, a virtual music party is coming to Sooke.
Sooke Folk Music Society is hosting its Monthly Coffee House on Saturday, April 17 via Zoom, and is welcoming performers from everywhere to join. From 7 to 8 p.m. open stage performers will be featured, followed by feature artist Sarah Smith.
Smith is a singer, songwriter originally from Ontario who now resides on Pender Island. She has toured throughout Canada, the U.S., Europe and the Caribbean sharing her music.
“Sarah is a seasoned road warrior, (having played) close to 300 shows per year. Along the way, she has shared the stage with artists including Carole Pope, Sass Jordan, Biff Naked, Emm Gryner, Joel Plaskett, David Wilcox, 54-40 and many others. Whether it’s just Smith and her acoustic guitar or her full band, she is simply a mesmerizing performer,” states a news release by the Sooke Folk Music Society.
The Monthly Coffee House is open to everyone, and is offered by donation. Donations go towards supporting the Sooke Folk Music Society, supporting feature performers, as well as the Harmony Project Sooke.
There will be a draw prize at the event announced at 9 p.m., which includes a $20 gift card to Sea of Bloom Floral Boutique and Gift Shop in Sooke, as well as an album from Sarah Smith.
