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.
