This event takes place Saturday, May 11 and will provide much needed support to the Harrison Festival Society as well as offer a great evening of entertainment.  For thirty five years the Harrison Festival Society has brought the best in world music and art to the upper Fraser Valley.  This is their only major fundraising event each year and they count on the proceeds to keep their events and activities happening.

 

In addition to the music the evening will include a silent auction, raffle and door prizes.  Appetizers and refreshments will be served.

 

A multiple Juno Award winner Jim Byrnes is one of Canada’s best known bluesmen and always puts on a great show in Harrison.  The Sojourners, originally put together to back up Byrnes on his award winning album House of Refuge, have gone on to become an in-demand group.   Their music captures echoes of doo wop, R&B, country and blues woven together with gospel to create a unique sound.

 

Tickets for this great evening are $75.00 plus tax.  A $30.00 tax receipt will be issued with each ticket.  With the purchase of eight tickets your table will be reserved; all other seating is general admission.
