Celtic harpist Roger Helfrick returns to the Comox Valley.

Celebrated harpist in Cumberland

Roger Helfrick concert Saturday at the Cumberland United Church,

Roger Helfrick, baritone and Celtic harp player, is offering a concert on Saturday, Oct. 24 at the Cumberland United Church, in Cumberland.

Helfrick wowed audiences the last three Decembers when he appeared as the main vocalist with Winter Harp for their tours, and is thrilled to be presenting this, an almost Halloween concert.

The concert is entitled Borderlands and features Helfrick on harp and vocals, medieval plucked psaltery, and guitar.

He is joined by Karen Sim, who will play violin, viola, and sing, in a concert of original and traditional songs of supernatural creatures as well as more earthly journeys and encounters.

Helfrick has performed at various concerts and charitable events since moving to the Comox Valley in the fall of 2007, and is currently teaching harp and performing.  A professional musician for 22 years, he has produced four CDs, garnering national and international radio play, as well as performances across Canada and in Japan.

Borderlands is on Saturday, Oct. 24 at the Cumberland United Church, on the corner of Penrith Avenue and First Street in Cumberland.  The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20, available at Laughing Oyster Books in Courtenay, Blue Heron Books in Comox, and at the door.
