The Cowichan Folk Guild’s coffeehouse, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 14 this month, features Gerry Barnum.

A soulful and seasoned artist, Barnum’s songs range from tender to foot-stomping and both his guitar technique and harmonica playing are excellent.

His career highlights include sharing the stage with some of the best in the business including Lyle Lovett, John Mayall and John Hammond. His instrumental skills have also seen Barnum taking part in many recording sessions with such names as Michelle Wright and kd lang and David Gogo.

The coffeehouse is held at Duncan United Church, 246 Ingram St. in downtown Duncan.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and an open stage starts at 7:30 p.m. with the headliner to follow.

Admission is $10 or $5 for folk guild members. If you love these events, why not ask about CFG membership when you attend? It’s reasonably priced and offers discounts to many great shows.
