Family Movie Night..features EPIC

The Village of Cache Creek presents another fun Family Movie at the Cache Creek Community Hall. The feature movie this month is the fabulous animated kids movie – EPIC. Bring the whole family to see this funny fantasy-adventure comedy-drama movie on Saturday, Sept. 28. Admission at the door. Doors open at 6:30 pm with the Movie starting at 7 pm.

There will be popcorn and goodies available for purchase at the concession supporting Cache Creek Elementary School’s Parent Advisory Council. No outside food or drinks, please. Children must be supervised and remain seated and quiet during the movie please.

In the movie, a teenager finds herself transported to a deep forest setting where a battle between the forces of good and the forces of evil is taking place. She bands together with a rag-tag group characters in order to save their world – and ours.

Guitar Idol 2011 winner in town!

Winding Rivers Arts & Performance Society begins its fourth season of concerts at St Albans in downtown Ashcroft. The first show of the season will be on Friday, Oct. 4 – with Vancouver-based finger-style guitarist, Don Alder. Tickets are now available in Ashcroft at the Ashcroft Bakery and Natures Gifts, and in Cache Creek at The Jade Shop.

Alder’s unique style of playing incorporates finger picking with simultaneous percussion to create a wall of sound. His music is a unique combination of deeply textured melody and rhythm. He has been featured in Guitar Player Magazine and all of the other main guitar publications.

As winner of the 2011 Worldwide Guitar Idol (held in London, UK), 2010 Guitar Superstar contest (LA, USA) and the 2007 International Fingerstyle Championships, often referred to as the Hendrix of acoustic guitar, Don Alder has earned his place as one of the top acoustic guitarists in the world and is the only guitarist to win all of the top prestigious guitar competitions armed with just an acoustic guitar.

Don is also recognized as one of the of the world’s top harp guitarists.

He is often referred to as sounding like a four piece band. Don’s music is his own unique weave of deeply textured melody and story. Lyrical and compelling, his original songs are notes of exploration – some passionate and haunting, some hard-driven, others light and teasing. In quiet pieces or pushing right to the edge, Don’s phenomenal finger style playing and rich voice captivate – not to be missed!

You can look forward to six Dessert Concerts this season. Plus – an opportunity to buy tickets for all six shows as a package for some great cost savings. This offer is only available via phone – so call today at (250) 453 9100 to get all six shows for a great musical deal! Tickets are now available in Ashcroft at the Ashcroft Bakery and Natures Gifts, and in Cache Creek at The Jade Shop. Look for a full 2013/14 Season line up, videos, show dates and bio’s of all performers on WRAP’s website – www.windingriversarts.ca
