SIDNEY, BC, Nov. 3, 2016 /CNW/ - Five-time Juno award winner Liona Boyd will be performing in Sidney, Courtenay, Chemainus and Salt Spring Island beginning on November 25, 2016.
Liona Boyd, the world-famous, 5 time Juno award winning guitarist, will be performing with her latest discovery – Andrew Dolson. This is Liona's first tour with her latest musical protégé: the wonderful singer and guitarist Andrew Dolson who will enthral the audience with his appearance, musical abilities (at 25 Andrew is also a model), and his powerful and expressive voice.
Liona Boyd and Andrew Dolson have included some Elementary Choirs into their program to provide the children with a once in lifetime experience being on stage with one of Canada's most accomplished artists. They will create a magical evening performing well loved Christmas music interwoven with Liona's original pieces, many of which are featured on her album "A Winter Fantasy".
