Celtic Cargo Cult set to take the stage for 1st Tuesday fundraiser

Our Sept.3, 1st Tuesday Fundraisers sponsored by the Mex Pub will feature Celtic Cargo Cult, David Somers and “Bootless” Bob Henderson with the warm-up set by hosts, Coast to Coast.

Born and raised in Ireland, Somers moved to the Comox Valley in 1992. 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.

Somers performs solo shows as well as shows with his band, Celtic Cargo Cult, who are familiar faces around the Comox Valley including a couple of appearances at Vancouver Island Musicfest. He will be joined at the First Tuesday Fund Raiser by “Bootless” Bob Henderson (drums/mandolin).

Henderson was born in eastern Canada and raised on both coasts (as well as some parts in between). He 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. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Admission by donation.

They will be raising funds for Project Watershed, Kus-Kus-Sum. Donations of foodstuffs for the Comox Valley Food Bank will also be accepted.

Comox Valley Project Watershed Society is a registered non-profit environmental society with Canadian charitable tax status focused on sensitive habitat stewardship. The organization is guided by a volunteer board and managed by staff.

They are also an active partner of the Comox Valley Conservation Strategy – Community Partnership. As part of their Estuary Stewardship, Project Watershed has committed to the restoration of the Field Sawmill site. They have been given a name for the site by the K’ómoks First Nation and are now calling it Kus-kus-sum.

Their vision is to create vibrant and productive habitat and connect it to Hollyhock flats, which is adjacent to the site and one of the most productive areas in the estuary.
