The Romeros will be hosting the workshop centred around banjos, early country music and vocal harmonies perfect for aspiring young folk musicians and those interested in the Romeros musical insights. They’ll follow this workshop with a soulful concert that will demonstrate these techniques and skills, along with their considerable musical talent.

Tickets are $10 for the workshop and $20 for the concert on sale now at The Open Book or via email at williamslakearts@gmail.com, with e-transfers accepted as payment.

Profits from the concert performance will go towards Community Art Council’s Youth Arts Initiatives including Art in the Park, Artists in the Schools and the Puddle Poetry in the Schools programs, to name a few.

The CACWL would like to thank their sponsors for this event, which are Pinnacle Renewable Energy, the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society and Pritchard and Co.
