Jim Moffatt at Char’s

Jim Moffatt performs at Char’s Landing on Argyle Street in Port Alberni on Saturday, Oct. 6. Doors open at 7 p.m.

It is said, “Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans,” and so it was with Jim Moffatt.

Moffatt performs at Char’s Landing on Argyle Street in Port Alberni on Saturday, Oct. 6. Doors open at 7 p.m.

After a 10-year hiatus Moffatt found his way back to music and located on the West Coast.

That return to music is good news for us all as Moffatt’s maturity has brought out a talent for writing and playing his special fusion style of folk, rock and blues.

Whether he is singing the humorous Boss on a Spit or the soulful Blues Man, he can relate life shared experience with any audience.

Moffatt has played on the stages of some very prestigious festivals including Vancouver Island  MusicFest in the Comox Valley.

“I love proving skeptics and nay-sayers wrong,” Moffatt says in his artist’s statement. “I love being the underdog. Not too comfortable. As a songwriter, being comfortable is a curse.”

Come and find out how comfortable he’s been. Tickets to see Moffatt are $12 in advance for adults and $10 for seniors and students. At the door tickets will cost $15/ $13. Please call 250-730-1636 to reserve.
