Voices Three and guests play fundraising concert

Tuesday the Mex Pub, Showtime 7:30, Proceeds to CV Hospice Society

Voices Three will be in concert Tuesday, Jan. 6 at the Mex Pub for the initial 1st Tuesday Fundraiser for 2015.

Tickets are not required but donations at the door are appreciated in support of the Comox Valley Hospice Society (CVHS).

The popular trio features the talents of local performers Helen Austin, Sue Pyper, and Judy Wing who will be joined by violinist Blaine Dunaway, percussionist Jim Stepan, and Bruce Wing on bass as featured guests of the monthly 1st Tuesday Fundraiser concert series.

Since their original formation and concert in 2007, Voices Three has raised $19,000 for CVHS. Between concerts, they pursue individual creative endeavors and bring new material to the group. Their harmonies, comedic banter, and complementary songwriting styles provide a memorable evening for their audience who appreciate the interactive format.

The Voices Three trio will be performing new material for the concert as well as a few of the songs that have become fan favourites.

With numerous albums and songwriting awards to her credit, a Juno award for her children’s album Colour It, and a new band on the rise called Big Little Lions, Helen Austin has also had notable success in licensing music for film and television.

Sue Pyper is an award winning songwriter who has been exploring clawhammer banjo techniques and expanding her creative energy into making wonderfully detailed paintings and custom pet portraiture.

Judy Wing is a copywriter by day, and she and her husband Bruce host two weekly open mics, and organize the monthly 1st Tuesday Fundraiser concert series, now in its seventh year. Their latest album Wishing for Someday received the VIMA Roots Song of the Year Award.

Seating is limited and admission is by donation so the trio invites you to come early, and give generously to the Comox Valley Hospice Society. Food donations for the Comox Valley Food Bank Society are also appreciated. The concert starts at 7:30 sharp.
