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.
Helfrick has performed at various concerts and charitable events since moving to the Comox Valley in 2007, and is currently teaching harp and performing. A professional musician for 22 years, he has produced four CDs, garnering national and international radio play, as well as performances across Canada and in Japan.
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.
