Brian denHertog and Jill Russell

1st Tuesday Fundraisers welcomes newcomers

1st Tuesday Fundraisers will be welcoming Brian denHertog and Jill Russell to be featured performers at the Mex Pub on Sept. 5.

The performing couple are new to the Comox Valley, and although they aren’t officially full time residents yet, they are community minded and are coming from Vancouver to be part of the event. Admission is by donation and proceeds collected at the door will go the Comox Valley Hospice Society.

denHertog has been performing his songs for more than thirty years at festivals, house concerts, and touring the small towns of Canada’s West Coast. Along the way he has been a carpenter, high school shop teacher, carver and jeweller. His songs are rooted in the acoustic elements of folk, blues and country. As a traveller and story teller, denHertog’s songs traverse physical and spiritual landscapes. His music illuminates the road less traveled and the way back home.

denHertog has released three studio albums in the last 16 years. His latest recording Ghost Stories was released at the end of 2015. He is most often joined on stage by his wife, flutist, saxophonist Jill Russell. They currently live in Horseshoe Bay, on the outskirts of Vancouver.

CVHS members will be at the door the evening of the concert to accept donations and to answer questions about the community services they offer to those who are living with dying, grieving and caregiving.

The evening of music starts at 7:30 p.m. with a prelude of instrumental music provided by The Snow Monkeez followed by a few songs by hosts Judy and Bruce Wing. Featured performers will follow and provide music for the remainder of the evening, followed by door prizes.

The Mex Pub is the sponsor of these monthly fundraising events. Each month features a different musical guest who chooses a non-profit group to receive the proceeds.For more information about how to support CVHS, visit comoxhospice.com.
