Arts Around: Travellers come to town

The Community Arts Council, sponsored by Capitol Theatre and the Kurucz family, will be holding a concert fundraiser on Sunday, Nov. 10, at 1:30 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre.

After five years of playing at the Teas on the Terrace, the Travelers—all members of the Kurucz family—will perform their first theatre concert to benefit the Rollin Art Centre.

Expect a special tribute to Remembrance Day at the beginning of the concert, then stroll  down memory lane with an interactive, sing-along afternoon with the likes of Peter, Paul and Mary, Eddy Arnold, Harry Belafonte, Anne Murray, John Denver, Journey, The Bee Gees and more.

The Travelers— Paul, Tatyanna and Jairynn Kurucz­—are known for putting a folk twist to both old and new songs.

Joining the Kurucz family will be Katelyn Perry, a bright, up-and-coming performer from the Comox Valley.

Tickets are on sale at Rollin Art Centre and Happy Soles Foot and Nail Care at 250-720-0397. Advance tickets: $10 or $12 at the door.
