Rockland Moran performs Saturday

Join Rockland Moran, with Chilliwack’s Billy Fulton on upright bass, for an intimate evening of original roots/blues tunes from his CDs ‘Come Sundown’ and ‘Touch the Ground’.

Moran, who grew up in Chilliwack and currently resides on Vancouver Island is a local favourite that always draws a big crowd of friends and fans whenever he returns to home.

He is an original songwriter and seasoned performer, who has entertained audiences of all sizes for more than three decades. He is an avid recording artist with five CDs and five independent film scores to his credit.

A decade and a half ago, Moran re-invented his guitar playing by shifting to open tuned acoustic. He has also mastered the ‘Keith Pegs’ that give a haunting steel guitar effect to his original tunes.

He has shared the stage with such greats as Leo ‘Bud’ Welch, Roy Rogers, and Blind Boy Paxton.

Highlights include performing at the Victoria Jazz festival, the Harrison Festival of the Arts, and the Vancouver Island Music Fest.

Along with performing his original songs, Moran also teaches workshops in open tuning, slide guitar behind the fret.

Rockland Moran performs Saturday, Aug. 27 at Bozzini’s upstairs lounge (45739 Hocking Ave.). Doors open at 8 p.m., show is at 9:30 p.m. Tickets $12.50 at Bozzini’s or call 604-792-0744 to reserve.
