Coco Love Alcorn invites public to ‘Wonderland’ in Duncan

Something special for music lovers is happening at the Christian Reformed Church Friday, Sept. 23

Something special for music lovers is happening at the Christian Reformed Church Friday, Sept. 23 as Coco Love Alcorn celebrates the release of her Wonderland CD.

She’ll be joined by the Lila Music Community Choir from the Cowichan Valley in this special show on Friday, Sept. 23 starting at 7:30 p.m.

“It’s a concert not to be missed,” according to Kelly Nakatsuka, new artistic director for the Cowichan Folk Guild.

“Coco’s new album is amazing for sing-alongs, so that’s what’s happening for this concert,” he said.

Love Alcorn’s musical journey has taken her on a winding path over her 20-year-plus career.

“Whether she’s sharing the stage with Canadian music royalty like Burton Cummings, Chantal Kreviazuk, and 54-40, or singing to tens of thousands as part of the wildly popular Lilith Fair festivals, Coco has been delighting audiences ever since she burst onto the scene with her 1995 debut album. She is simply one of the most dynamic and engaging live performers working in this country.”

Now, after taking a five-year break from intensive touring and performing to focus on being a mom, Love Alcorn is back with a groundbreaking new record, highlighting her deeper connection with her music.

Advance tickets are $20 each or $15 for Cowichan Folk Guild members, and $15 for group purchases of 10 or more. At the door, the tickets are $25 ($20 for CFG members.) Children 12 and under get in free.

Tickets are available at Volume One Books, Ten Old Books, and online at https://islandsfolk.tickit.ca
