Full Moon Cafe: First of the House Concert Series

Please join us as we begin the First of the House Concert Series.

Venue:  Vista Ridge Lodge
Date/Time: Friday Sept 30th at 8 p.m.

How to get there: (From Fort McMurray) - Follow Hwy. 63 south to Hwy. 69. Follow Highway 69 past the airport turn off (12 km) towards Saprae Creek. Turn left onto Spruce Valley Road (towards Saprae Creek Estates). Vista Ridge is located at the end of the road.

Performing artists on the bill:

Opener: Singer/Songwriter Jim Dorie
Jim will open up our 8th season!  This is fitting because Jim was a regular at the Full Moon Cafe in the past.
Jim feels right at home playing to audiences at house concerts and folk festivals.

Main: Singer/Songwriter Ken Flaherty accompanied by Kevin Meeks

Ken was a co-host of McMurray Music on CJOK radio featuring local musicians and would occasionally drop into the Full Moon Cafe.  “I consider myself more of a story teller than a song writer. “ says Flaherty, when asked to describe his style “if I can hold your attention for a few minutes I consider the song successful. I feel that music can entertain and still make a social statement, if you want it to.”  Ken opened for the Irish Descendants at a Wood Buffalo Kitchen party back in 2010, Ken performs at house concerts and festivals. Kevin often accompanies Ken.

Admission: $10 at the door, cash only please.  Bring an extra $20 to $40 for a CD or two in case you want to purchase CDs.

All proceeds go to the artists.

Vista Ridge has a licenced bar. Please make plans to carpool or cab it if you are consuming alcohol.

Please note, this is a concert and not our usual open stage format.

Health, hope and happiness.
