Max Hawk and Roger Luckey will be playing Saturday afternoon at Ellison’s Cafe.

New and old musical duos set to play at Ellison’s

Ellison’s Cafe Acoustic Unplugged Sessions goes Saturday, January 18 at 1 p.m.

Ellison’s Cafe Acoustic Unplugged Sessions on Saturday, January 18 opens at 1 p.m. with a new duo to their stage.

J’M is a bilingual folk duo made up of Nelson’s Julie and Josh Murray on ukulele and guitar. They deliver a jovial, uplifting, toe tapping blend of strings and harmonies that’s sure to put a curl in your lip and a bounce in your step.

At 2 p.m. they’ll turn the stage over to veteran musicians Max Hawk and Roger Luckey for some “high lonesome and hillbilly swing.”

Hawk is a singer-songwriter, troubadour and guitar slinger who’s been playing and performing his particular brand of country folk all across Canada for over 35 years.

Luckey’s an accomplished multi-instrumentalist who’s played in countless bands and settings throughout the Kootenays over the past 40-plus years. Be it dobro, mandolin or chromatic harmonica, his instrumental and vocal harmony accompaniment fill out the sound to make this duo a compelling act.

Admission is free and donations for the band will be graciously accepted.
