This coming week offers plenty of variety at the Duncan Showroom.

On Friday, Jan. 13, all music loving Triskaidekaphiles can make your way to Station Street in Duncan for a performance by Myrle starting at 8 p.m.

“Based near Toronto, Ontario, Myrle’s music has been favourably compared to the legendary Steve Earle and Tom Waits, all while crafting a modern soulful sound that is entirely his own,” said the Showroom’s Longevity John Falkner. Tickets are $15 at the door or $12 in advance.

On Saturday, Jan. 14, at 2 p.m., Daniel Cook and the Radiators are offering a chance to listen “some of the Island’s most progressive country music,” Falkner said.

“They are in [the Showroom] recording and agreed to letting the public attend for the first hour if they so choose.”

A suggested $10-$15 donation will get you in on the fun.

For something totally different, on Saturday, Jan. 14, again, at 8 p.m. there’s music by the Cowichan Valley’s Stay At Home Dads and Silver Chord.

“There is a local music scene and this is an opportunity for both these bands and the audience to experience how much great music is made in this Valley we call home,” Falkner said.

Tickets are $15 at door or $12 in advance.

On Sunday, Jan. 15, starting at 7:30 p.m. Roly Thompson and Carla Olive, a pair of singer/songwriters from afar, make their way to the Showroom stage.

Tickets are also $15 at the door or $12 in advance.
