Coast singer and songwriter Joe Stanton released his CD, Passenger Stanton, his third in eight years, last February, and he's been busy ever since touring and playing.
The contemporary folk musician will perform at Roberts Creek Hall, Saturday, Sept. 18, at 9 p.m. with his five-piece band, The Precious Littles, as well as special guest, opening act singer/ songwriter Murray Boal.
It's a homegrown, living room party, dancing-in-the-kitchen kind of music, says Stanton. His colleague Boal comes from Quesnel and writes songs about the spirit of the people and places of the Cariboo. Stanton will offer songs from Passenger Stanton, favourites from his other recordings and a colourful collection of cover tunes. The evening is sponsored by the Sunshine Coast Live Music Society, a non-profit, volunteer-run organization, that really wants to fill the Roberts Creek Hall with volleyball fans.
The money goes towards the Sunshine Coast Volleyball Club in order to send junior players to competition in other provinces.
Tickets for $12 are available at the Roberts Creek Health Food Store, Windsong Gallery in Sechelt and Coast Books in Gibsons. Refreshments will be available at the event. Call the Live Music Society at 604-885-7288 for more information.
