FUNDRAISER CONCERT:  THE TRAVELERS AND FRIENDS PART 2

After a sold out concert on Nov 10, 2013, and 5 years of playing at the Tea on the Terrace, Paul, Tatyanna and Jairynn Kurucz, known by many as “The Travelers”, will be performing again to benefit The Rollin Arts Centre.

“A Splash of Tartan – A Tribute to Robbie Burns” will undoubtedly surprise and delight many of the audience with old Scottish favourites to reminisce and sing along to.   Joining the travelers will be the PA Highland Band.

After the short intermission, guests will be led down memory lane with an interactive, sing along afternoon with the likes of Al Martina, Elvis, Peter, Paul and Mary, Journey, Don McLean – completely different material

from the last concert will be performed.  With their “Folk Twist” to many oldies and more contemporary tunes, there will be more than enough music to satisfy everyone’s taste.  Joining the Kurucz family again by popular

acclaim will be Katelyn Perry, a bright up and coming young performer from the Comox Valley.  Together they’ll be acoustically performing music from every known genre.  Join them for a fun afternoon on Sat., Jan. 18th, 2014 at the Capitol Theatre from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.  Doors open at 12:30.  All proceeds benefit the Rollin Arts Centre.  Advance Tickets are $10.00, $12.00 at the door.  Tickets are available at the Rollin Arts Centre at 250-724-3412 or at Happy Soles Foot and Nail Care at 250-720-0397.
