Helfrick brings his harp to Cumberland




Roger Helfrick, baritone and Celtic harp player, is offering a concert on Saturday Sept. 20 at the Cumberland United Church, Penrith Avenue and First Street in Cumberland.

Helfrick wowed audiences the last two Decembers when he appeared as the main vocalist with Winter Harp for their 2012 and 2013 tours, and is thrilled to be presenting this, an autumn equinox concert and official release of his latest CD, Willow.

The concert is entitled: WILLOW and features Helfrick’s voice accompanied by Celtic lever harp, medieval plucked psaltery and guitar. The evening will feature many songs from his latest CD as well as some old and new favourites from around the world.

Helfrick has performed at various concerts and charitable events since moving to the Comox Valley in the fall of 2007, and is currently teaching harp and preparing for his return as the main vocalist with Winter Harp for their 2014 Christmas season tour.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15, available at Laughing Oyster Books in Courtenay, Blue Heron Books in Comox, and at the door.
