Jeff Drummond has been busy preparing the line-up for this year's Guitar Fest.

CYMC’S third annual Guitar Fest this weekend

Half a dozen of the Valley’s finest guitarists jamming at the Little Red Church in Comox Saturday

Celebrating the guitar has become a tradition for the Comox Valley Youth Music Centre (CYMC). April 18 at 7:30 p.m. will see half a dozen of the Valley’s finest guitarists jamming at the Little Red Church in Comox. Jeff Drummond, organizer, says they are all looking forward to coming back so it will be an entertaining evening for performers and audience alike.

The event, now in its third year, was sparked by the gift to CYMC of a Vancouver-made, finger picking Morgan guitar. Each year a new student has the use of it and each year the Morgan is featured in the concert. As a fundraiser for CYMC’S Island Jazz Program we hope to fill the house.

Seating is limited so be sure to get your tickets in advance. Both the Laughing Oyster and Blue Heron book stores are selling them at $15 each.
