The final instalment in the Harmony concert series at The Arthouse on Mill Street is this Friday.
On June 23 head to The Arthouse for O’Canada, a celebration of Canada’s 150th with an Irish twist. Local duo, Murphy’s Lagh, will be entertaining crowds with the lively sounds of traditional Irish music and humour, while poignant images taken by the talented photojournalist, Jenna Hauck, from the Chilliwack Progress, will be projected behind the stage during the show — adding some nostalgia and colour to what promises to be an exhilarating evening.
Murphy’s Lagh is a musical duo featuring Jennie Bice on fiddle and vocals, and Irish-born Damian Brennan on guitar, tin whistles, bodhran drum, and lead vocals.
The two have been playing music together for 18 years and their high energy Irish show is a performance you will not want to miss. Come listen and clap along to traditional Irish ballads, folk songs, jigs, and reels, all performed with a healthy sprinkling of Irish storytelling and humour.
Hauck has been a staff photographer with the Chilliwack Progress since 2000. During her 17 years at The Progress, she has won dozens of provincial and national photo awards including three second-place Canadian awards from the News Photographers Association of Canada. Hauck had her first solo photo exhibition, 14 Gold: Images from the 2010 Olympics, on display at the Chilliwack Museum in 2014.
