Best Country Music Jamboree Ever

2 p.m. on Sunday, May 31 at the Florence Filberg Centre.

Jackie Lambeth will be singing tunes made famous by some of the biggest names in country music.

For the fifth year in succession, the Evergreen Club will be hosting a country music fundraiser in support of the Sonshine Lunch Program at St. George’s United Church.

This year’s concert is titled “The Best Country Music Jamboree Ever” and promises to be the show of all shows.

The jamboree is organized and MCed by the Evergreen Club’s own Ken MacLeod.

If you are a country music fan who loves to support a good cause, then this one’s for you.

The Sonshine Lunch Club is under the leadership of Martin Davies and feeds up to 200 people, Monday to Friday, at St. George’s Church.

This year’s show features the ‘Nightingale of the Comox Valley’ Jacqueline Lambeth, doing some Patsy Cline/LeAnn Rimes numbers, along with B.C. country icon Denny Eddy of Coombs doing some Merle Haggard (and other country favourites).

Eddy is a two-time winner of the BC Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year.

Dave Perry will also be showcasing his talent with his tribute to Canadian country music.

A special treat this year will be the introduction of eight-year-old Emma Casavant, who recently wowed fans at the Evergreen Club’s play Picnic in 1915.

Along with the featured artists, the show will feature Glen Hiebert (fiddle), Bob Casavant (vocals and rhythm guitar), Art McMartin (mandolin and fiddle), Ray Ledoux (electric bass), Ed Medford (guitar and fiddle), Doris Weislein (vocals), George Bentham (vocals), Irene Tomchick (vocals), and Bob Mainwaring (steel guitar).

Showtime is 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 31 at the Florence Filberg Centre.

Doors will open at 1 p.m. Tickets for this show are $10 and are available at the Filberg Centre (or at the door if still available). For more information call 250-338-1000 or check out the website evergreenclub.me
