Join Melanie and I this Sunday at Steveston Landing  from 1-3 pm for the Steveston Folk Guild's "Concert on the Boardwalk" in support of the 2008 Weekend to End Breast Cancer walk.

We will be on hand to collect donations as the following musicians generously donate their time and talent:

Steve Alexander who is the feature performer of The Music at the Cannery series on August 9th will be performing, and Karen Kelm, another SFG performer will be performing a few jazz numbers with Steve as well as playing a set of her own.

Steve is well known in bluegrass and guitar circles. He has twice won the BC Guitar Flat pickers championships, and is a well respected musician. Karen has a background in big band sound as a vocalist, and also performs in a duo called “The Neverly Sisters” with Ellen Van Der Hoevan. The Neverlys did the opening act at Music at the Cannery last Saturday.

Also performing will be Dave MacArthur, who organized this event, with The Dusty Hillbillys, a group of dubious repute who play a mixture of folky/celtic material laced with a bit of country.

Location:    Steveston Landing, Shady Island, Bayview Street

                        (in the heart of Steveston where all the restaurants are on the boardwalk)
