Celtic trio brings music to Sooke

The Pierre Schryer, Martin Nolan and Adam Dobres Trio will perform here May 15

A special music presentation is coming to Sooke.

The Pierre Schryer, Martin Nolan and Adam Dobres Trio will perform a variety of Celtic music at a tour stop at Sooke Community Hall on May 15.

“It is a rare and very special occasion when these three fine musicians get together to play music,” said tour organizer Mel Dobres.

“Pierre makes a yearly trip from Ontario to B.C. near Adam’s home on Pender Island, while Martin comes every two years from Ireland to visit the West Coast. Although the time between collaborations is long, when these exceptional artists do unite it is a high quality and magical experience.”

Schryer is one of Canada’s leading traditional fiddlers. He is a Juno Award and Canadian Folk Music nominee.

Nolan is an Irish uilleann piper whose performances has taken him throughout Europe, the UK, India, Australia, New Zealand, the U.S. and Canada.

Adam Dobres is a highly accomplished guitarist with a natural ability to embody many styles of music. He is equally at home with bluegrass, Celtic, jazz, country, folk, old

time, rock and blues. His love of the electric and acoustic guitar has taken him around

the globe.

Tickets for the Pierre Schryer, Martin Nolan and Adam Dobres Trio concert are available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Stick in the Mud and are $20 advance ($23 door) and $15 for children under 12.
