David Somers and Celtic Cargo Cult are back at Zocalo Café this Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m.

Celtic Cargo Cult consists of David Somers (guitar/vocals), David Hext and Bob Henderson.

Born and raised in Ireland, Somers moved with his family to the Comox Valley 20 years ago. A love for song fuels his writing and performing. His CD At the End of the Day is an equal mix of original songs and unique arrangements of traditional Irish songs.

A guitarist and drummer in other parts of his musical life, longtime Valley resident David Hext takes on bass guitar and vocals with what he calls his ‘bash on regardless’ style of play. David’s energy and humour are at the heart of the character of the band.

“Bootless” Bob Henderson (drums) was born in Eastern Canada and raised on both coasts (as well as some parts in between). Bob feels at home with rhythms of Celtic music and brings a wealth of experience to his playing.

Together, Celtic Cargo Cult brings a fresh feel and a distinctive sound to old world music. From heartfelt ballads to high-energy Celtic rock, their shows will stir your soul and move your feet.

On the corner of Cliffe Avenue and Fifth Street in Courtenay, Zocalo provides an ideal intimate setting in which to enjoy the band’s original music and unique arrangements of traditional and contemporary Irish songs. In addition to its mouth-watering desserts and coffees, it also has a licensed dining menu with beer, wine and liqueurs.
