Chatten going on at Char's in Alberni

Veteran Canadian folk singer and outstanding finger-style guitarist, Glenn Chatten, has joined forces with the incomparable Vancouver-based songstress, keyboardist/songwriter, Sue Turner, in creating a magical and inspiring performance of original music.

Their eclectic style combines the true essence of folk harmonies together with jazz and funky blues instrumental riffs, offering the listener a potpourri of musicianship reminiscent of the James Taylor and Carly Simon duo of the eighties.

They will perform songs from their individual albums, All My Graces (Turner) and Where You Need to Be (Chatten) as well as new material that they will be recording together.

Sue’s solo CD was released in 2008 and enjoyed significant CBC airplay.

“I think music gets people out of their complacency, out of their day-to-day experience and reminds them of who they really are,” says Turner. Chatten and Turner’s “Life is Short” Canadian tour brings them to Char’s Landing in uptown Port Alberni on Friday, Feb. 8 from 8-10 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.

Advance tickets are $12 at Rollin Art Centre (cash only). Drop-ins add $3.

For more information, please call 250-730-1636.  Char’s is located at 4815 Argyle St.
