CYMC Guitar Fest goes Saturday

Farley Mifsud practises on the Morgan guitar.

Attention all guitar players and fans of the instrument: You will not want to miss this concert.

On Saturday, March 12 the Comox Valley Youth Music Centre (CYMC) will present some of the Valley’s most talented guitarists in concert at the Little Red Church in Comox.

Look forward to Hawaiian, jazz, country, rock, blues plus original tunes. Each artist will have spotlight individually and then producer, Jeff Drummond, will create new and unusual combos.

This is CYMC’s fourth annual guitar event and the back story is this: John Shimeld, formerly of the Comox Valley, donated his beautiful Morgan guitar to CYMC with the hope that both the organization and local students could benefit.

What evolved was a concert where the student, who had been granted the Morgan for a year, also performs in this fundraising event.

This year’s student is 15-year-old Farley Mifsud.

He is thrilled with the opportunity and is exploring all genres of music including rock, blues and roots.

Being home schooled, he may be able to squeeze in some extra hours on the Morgan.

Likely his band mates from Interception will be there for moral support.

So come on out and support the CYMC Island Jazz Camp while enjoying great music from Anela Kahiamoe, Jeff Drummond, Al Jossul, John Mundy and Annie Handley. The concert starts 7 p.m. at the Little Red Church in Comox.

Refreshments by donation will be served at intermission and tickets are available at the Laughing Oyster and Blue Heron bookstores as well as at the door, $15 for adults and $10 for students.

For more information, call 250-338-7463 or info@cymc.ca
