Senner and friends play in Courtenay for Alzheimer Society of B.C.

Next 1st Tuesday Fundraiser goes July 3 a

The next 1st Tuesday Fundraiser sponsored by the Mex Pub will be July 3 and will feature singer/songwriter Nathan Senner, with special guests Blaine Dunaway, Alan Jossul and Bruce Wing. Senner will be performing in aid of the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

The society is the only province-wide non-profit organization dedicated to helping anyone concerned with or facing dementia have the confidence and skills to maintain quality of life as much as possible. Its vision is a world without Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Until that day comes, the organization is working towards a world in which people living with the disease are welcomed, acknowledged and included.

The Comox Valley Food Bank will be there to accept food donations for families in the Valley who are in need.

Senner is a local musician well known for his moving songs about life and the human condition. He has been writing for more than 25 years, has produced and recorded an original CD Dance in the Moon, and is currently in the studio at work on his second.

With a style that has been compared to artists like James Taylor, Marc Cohn and Jim Croce, Senner is a welcomed performer at local music venues, community events, and festivals including Vancouver Island MusicFest, and the Island Folk Festival in Duncan. He is a respected songwriter, three-time finalist in the Cowichan Folk Guild songwriting competition, and was nominated for ‘Song of the Year’ and ‘Vocalist of the Year’ at the Vancouver Island Music Awards.

“Senner’s music is thoughtful and bittersweet, and the humble sincerity of his vocals and sensitive delivery make his music especially meaningful,” said former long-time 1st Tuesday Fundraiser co-host Judy Wing.

Senner will be supported by three fine musicians: Dunaway, violin virtuoso, on violin and chin cello; Jossul, one of the finest guitarists west of the Rockies; and Bruce (B.B.) Wing, bassist extraordinaire.

The evening begins at 7:30 with a warm up set by hosts Scott Lyle and Corey Francis.

Nathan and friends will begin at 8 p.m.
