Sooke Harbour House Resort Hotel is proud to present a concert by Cari Burdett of Lila Music Centre, and long-time collaborator and Fado singer Sara Marreiros.

The concert performed in the intimacy of the Potlatch Room will feature a tremendously talented entourage, with vocalists Cari Burdett and Sara Marreiros, Adrian Dolan on piano, accordion, and mandolin, Adam Dobres on piano, and new this year, award winning teen violinist Quin Etheridge-Pedden, and Victoria’s own, bassist Nick Mintenko. The multi-genre concert will fuse a 12th Century secular canon, a popular French Canadian fiddle tune, a Portuguese duet, folk songs, gospel, and pop classics by ‘Sting.’ Created for the delight of all ages, Solstice delights regulars and newcomers alike and sells out each year to much acclaim. -- *Please note that there will be no choir performance at this venue.

Donations will be gratefully accepted for the Witness Project. Created to build understanding of the severity and reality of the genocide in Canada, it physically weaves together many residential school stories to help represent the pain of the past and hope for the future. http://witnessblanket.ca/#!/project/
