Fly-fisherman to perform his tunes
Guitar-playing fly-fisherman Elvin Berthiaume will perform his original tunes at the Red Deer Public Library on Friday.
Berthiaume was inspired to take up the guitar after watching The Beatles perform on the Ed Sullivan Show.
He has travelled the world since, playing in various bands, including a stint in the first Canadian group to ever play in Moscow.
The singer/songwriter, who grew up in Alberta’s foothills, has a new CD of original material in the works.
He will perform from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Snell Auditorium, next to the Kiwanis Gallery downstairs at the library, during the First Fridays gallery showings.
The Red Deer Arts Council continues to present Pulse of Istanbul: Recent Works by Asta Dale in the Kiwanis Gallery until Oct. 12.
