Ellison's Cafe Acoustic Unplugged Sessions will feature Marty Carter on saxophone this Saturday

On Saturday February 2 from 1 to 3 p.m., Ellison’s Cafe Acoustic Unplugged Sessions features Marty Carter who’s been performing across Western Canada as a founding member in an original art rock, reggae, blues band called New Moon.

He’s played live and in the studio with numerous groups over the years and is now producing original music in a singer songwriter style including guitar and piano piece’s as well as instrumental ambient music with flutes and saxophone.

Next up, The Kitchen Players is made up of Shannon Sargent, Matt Osborne, Philip Seagram, and Carlo Alcos — four Nelsonites brought together by their love of acoustic music and singing harmonies.

While they currently perform mostly cover songs (spanning various genres but in their own folky flavour) their repertoire of originals is expanding. Besides the blending of voices you can expect the accompaniment of guitars, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, and maybe even a banjo.

As always, admission to this weekly concert series is free and donations for the bands will be graciously accepted.
