This weekend, both Lake Cowichan and Youbou will be hosting several performances by emerging country gospel singer Maureen Haworth.

Haworth’s first performance will be at the recently established Cassie’s Coffee Shop, located on 10375 Youbou Road, on Saturday (August 29) at 2 p.m. Later in the evening, she will be at Central Park, filling in a set for the final Music in the Lake: Summer Nights concert of the year. On Sunday (August 30), she’ll be playing at the Cowichan Lake Baptist Church (8259 Beaver Road) at 10:30 a.m., the Youbou Communtiy Church (10648 Youbou Road) at 2 p.m. and the Lake Cowichan Christian Fellowship Church (10 King George Street) at 7 p.m. The series of performances are being presented by CICV Radio.

The Grand Forks, BC-based musician has been receiving attention in gospel circles around North America since she released her debut solo album, It’s Time, late last year. Since then, she’s been travelling around BC performing her songs in churches and music festivals alike. She was also recently named Female Gospel Artist of the Year by the CMG Global Radio Club.

There is no cover charge for the upcoming shows this weekend, and residents are invited to attend.
