Minto Arts show runs on Feb. 7

The com­ing Basement Café feat­ur­ing guitarist and singer Bill Candy is set for Feb. 7.

Candy brings a combination of guitar and vocal mastery to the stage. His roots go to the 1960s and ’70s (Jim Croce, Paul Simon, James Taylor etc.), and combines with his classical and jazz studies at the Royal Conservatory of Music and Berk­lee College of Music in Boston.

Opening the show for Candy is Peter Judd, a story-telling singer-song-writer who lives in Kitchener. In 2005, his song, How To Build A Wall, won the humour category at the OCFF’s Songs from the Heart con­test.

Basement Café music dir­ector Juanita Wilkins is pleased to continue to book artists for the fundraiser for the Minto Arts Council. The show is in the basement auditorium of the Harriston public library at 88 Mill Street. Tickets are $15 per person, and can be purchased by Visa or Mastercard by calling 519-327-8529, or email
