Sons and Daughters to perform along with and Thea and the Fine Gentlemen

Selkirk College’s Contemporary Music and Technology Program students will perform on April 10 in Nelson.

Students from Selkirk College’s Contemporary Music and Technology Program are getting ready to wrap up another school year, but not before leaving their mark on the town.

The acoustic folk ensemble Sons and Daughters and Selkirk’s jazz ensemble Thea and the Fine Gentlemen will be taking the stage at Expressions in downtown Nelson on April 10. The groups will be performing songs that range from Esperanza Spalding to Neil Young.

Take one part folk and one part bluegrass, mix in a little soul and talented musicians, and you have Sons and Daughters. Under the direction of Selkirk voice instructor Laura Landsberg, the group will perform covers from The Wailin’ Jennys, Neil Young and The Eagles.

The band is made up of current Selkirk students Elijah Larson (vocals), Nikita Afonso (vocals), Dylan Ferris (mandolin, banjo, vocals), Colin Weeks (guitar, vocals), Yitsy Holton Hinshaw (violin, keys, vocals), Hunter Stanway (bass, vocals) and Aaron Thrasher (drums).

Thea and the Fine Gentleman are made up of one lady and three fine gentlemen. They are a quartet with a lounge vibe.

Band members include Thea Loberg (vocals), Paul Landsberg (guitar), Elian Nelson (bass) and Jason Jung (piano).

Cover is $10 at the door and $5 for students. Doors open at 7 p.m. with the show starting at 7:30 p.m.

Sons and Daughters will also be playing a special afternoon set on April 12 at Ellison’s Market starting at 1 p.m.
