Bobby Smith and Scherlene Auchterlonie perform Friday

The Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society’s 2015 Music in the Hall series kicks off this Friday

The Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society’s 2015 Music in the Hall series kicks off this Friday with a little bit of Celtic flavour.

Scottish-born entertainer Bobby Smith will be the featured performer Friday, Jan. 9 at St. Michael’s Hall on Mill Street in Chemainus. He will be joined at St. Michael’s Hall by fiddler Scherlene Auchterlonie from Comox.

Smith, who has been playing music locally and abroad for about 30 years, is back living in the area again.

“Bobby has an endless repertoire from a variety of musical genres, which will provide a great platform to display his amazing talent with the guitar, banjo and other instruments, along with his vocal abilities,” the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society (CVCAS) states in a press release. “This really does look like an evening not to be missed.”

The show gets underway at 7 p.m., and admission is by donation.
