Lion Bear and Fox coming to Alberni

The Vancouver- and Ladysmith-based trio is bringing their unique brand of music to Port Alberni.

When the Lion the Bear the Fox performs in Port Alberni this Thursday, Oct. 17, music fans will get a chance to hear new songs from the band’s just-released EP and help bridge the gap for music therapy patients on Vancouver Island.

This fall, the Vancouver- and Ladysmith-based trio, Christopher Arruda and Cory Woodward of Vancouver and Ryan McMahon of Ladysmith, has partnered with Music Heals to raise money to bring Bandwagon, a mobile recording studio used by music therapists, to Vancouver Island.

Each show along the Lion the Bear the Fox’s We’d Be Good Men EP release tour this month will benefit that campaign.

Port Alberni music fans can be part of that magic on Oct. 17 at Char’s Landing, 4815 Argyle St., at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. Advance tickets are $15 for adults or $12 for seniors and can be purchased at Gayle’s Fashions or reserved by e-mailing info@charslanding.com.

Tickets at the door will be $18 and $15.
