David Lowther jams on a song with headliner Jim Moffatt

Folky times with Music in the Lake

A mellow evening of singer/songwriters made up June’s monthly Music in the Lake evening of entertainment.

A mellow evening of singer/songwriters made up June’s monthly Music in the Lake evening of entertainment.

The night started off with its usual open stage setup, beginning with hosts David and Mary Lowther playing a few folk-influenced original numbers.

Former Music Club member Lucy Vermiere then played a few classical songs on her guitar.

The Music Club had recently disbanded, handing over its savings of $5.23 to Music in The Lake.

Headliner Jim Moffatt then took to the stage, filling the evening out with heartfelt finger-picked folk songs.

“If I don’t play, I don’t feel good, and if I don’t play for people, I feel even worse,” he said, during his earnest set.

Next month’s Music in the Lake will be a unique one, in that it’s taking place at Lake Cowichan’s Central Park.

The show, to take place Thursday, July 28, will begin with its usual open stage setup, and will then feature two headliners, including Victoria folk musicians The Chattering Class and Virgo Rising.

Virgo Rising features Sharon Hazelwood, who used to live in the Cowichan Lake area.

The group is currently coming off a 20-year hiatus.

Attendance will be by donation.

No seating will be provided, so those coming will be encouraged to bring their own chairs.
