Ian Tamblyn is a wildly entertaining musician and always delights his audience.

He is touring through Western Canada and has agreed to spend an evening this Friday on Seabank Road in Courtenay.

Ian has recorded over 30 albums, received numerous awards and is a Canadian folksinging treasure. Many of his songs have been recorded by other artists and he recently won the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Awards English Songwriter of the Year.

He conducts numerous songwriting workshops; works in the adventure travel field as a lecturer, Zodiac driver and musician; and produces albums for other musicians.

Accompanying Ian at this special concert will be fiddler Trent Freeman. Trent, winner of the 2012 Canadian Folk Music Awards Instrumental Solo Artist of the Year, is just back from touring in the Maritimes and the States with his band, The Fretless, and with mandolin bluegrass star John Reischman.

See Trent’s news at www.trentfreeman.ca.

If you have never been to a house concert, now is your chance to listen to superb music from talented musicians in the comfort of a house with a limited number of guests. Well, actually, we hope it will be a full house as all the money from ticket sales goes right to the musicians.

CDs will also be for sale and you will have the opportunity to talk with the performers during the evening intermissions.

Refreshments with be available for about 50 excitable fans. The concert starts at 7 p.m.
