The Nov. 12 Cowichan Folk Guild coffeehouse at the Duncan United Church brings back Just Duets, who last played the venue in 2014.

Andrea Smith and David Lidstone return to the coffeehouse bringing their vocal harmonies and guitar playing to this downtown institution.

They have been performing in the Vancouver area for a number of years at local coffeehouses, folk clubs, special-interest venues such as the Langara College Public Lecture Series and the Workers’ Cabaret as well as at social justice events such as Taking a Stand on Housing and Bridge to a Cool Planet.

Just Duets has released a CD titled Get On Board and their repertoire consists of songs of life and love that come from a variety of musical genres and reflect a commitment to social justice, to Canadian roots, and to poetry in song.

Doors open at 7 p.m. with an open stage starting at 7:30 p.m. and the headliners at 8 p.m.

Admission is $10 or $5 for CFG members.
