Saturday, 7:30 p.m. at Cumberland United Church

Roger Helfrick, baritone and Celtic harp player, is offering a concert on Saturday, Nov. 5 at the Cumberland United Church.

The concert is entitled BARD, and features Helfrick’s voice accompanied by Celtic lever harp, medieval plucked psaltery, and guitar.  Music from western Europe and the British Isles, mingled with Helfrick’s own songs, will explore the themes of nature, myth, humour, love, and death.

The Cumberland United Church is at 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.
