Mereville folk club offers another house concert

Gardeners Green Folk Club in Mereville is hosting a house concert with the Tete Trio on Saturday, April 11

Gardeners Green Folk Club in Mereville is hosting a house concert with the Tete Trio on Saturday, April 11.

Lynn McGown and Michael Pratt have an infectious love of singing that has delighted audiences in Vancouver for 30 years.

As Tete a Tete, they have played at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival four times, and various concerts and folk clubs throughout Canada and the British Isles.

Their songs range from traditional to contemporary but always touch the heart, entertain and delight. Pratt is an excellent singer, concertina player and fiddler who draws from his Irish roots, as well as his involvement in the folk clubs in the British Folk Revival in the late 1960s and 70s, before he moved to Canada.

McGown’s musical roots come from growing up in a French Canadian/English family in Montreal. She has a beautiful voice and sings with warmth and presence that inspires. Michael Viens, of Blackthorn fame, first joined the Tetes for the Vancouver Peace March in 2012 and brought his wonderful guitar playing and bass voice to add a rich depth to the harmonies.

An evening with the Tete Trio is a musical conversation with stories of humour, the events that shape our lives, and love won and lost, with plenty of opportunity for everyone to lift their voices in chorus.

Come and join us at Gardeners Green for an intimate evening of great entertainment. As this is a house concert, seating is limited, and tickets must be purchased in advance.

Tickets are $20 (all of which goes to the performers), and include hot drinks and a lovely spread of desserts and finger food; there will also be the usual raffle for charity, with great prizes.

For more information regarding time and location, and to purchase tickets, call 250-337-5337.
