Coming up in the arts: Phil Dwyer trio and the Cardigan Brothers

Two wildly different shows are happening at the Duncan Showroom this week

Get ready for the Phil Dwyer trio

Two wildly different shows are happening at the Duncan Showroom this week, guaranteeing you some post-Christmas entertainment as well as a place to take visitors.

Tonight (Wednesday, Dec. 28) at 8 p.m., the Showroom welcomes the popular Phil Dwyer Trio.

Home for the holidays, Dwyer is returning to the Showroom and joining him will be Hans Verhoeven (drums) and Ben Dwyer (bass).

Longevity John Falkner says: “We are very fortunate to have this concert to take place so let us fill the venue.”

With tickets priced at $25 at the door, that should be no problem.

Cardigan Bros coming home

From another part of the sky, another set of stars is arriving in the Valley.

On Friday, Dec. 30 starting at 8 p.m., it’s time for the The Cardigan Brothers.

The Parker family all return home for the season and music is in the air and they’re rarin’ to share.

This annual event has raised a lot of cash for charities and it is the family’s wish that you pay by cash donation to the food bank and then have a good time.

For fans of these fellows, this might be the last time to hear them for some time as apparently some of them are moving away and may not be available for a show for some time.
