Sojourners headed to Smithers

The BVCA is proud to present the Sojourners at the Della Herman Theatre on Wednesday, October 10, 2012, at 7:30 p.m.

The Bulkley Valley Concert Association is proud to present the Sojourners at the Della Herman Theatre (NOT the Roi as marked on some season’s tickets) on Wednesday, October 10, 2012, at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets at Mountain Eagle Books (250-847-5245), and possibly at the door (no guarantees).

So who are the Sojourners?

When Vancouver’s legendary blues singer Jim Byrnes needed help with a recording project in 2005, he asked Marcus Mosely to find some friends to sing the harmonies on the Gospel-tinged blues CD “House of Refuge.”

And so, the Sojourners were born.

Moving beyond their role as backup singers for Jim, they have become one of the most powerful African American gospel trios on the planet.

Steeped in the tradition, and backed by a group of Canada’s finest musicians, they are a lush and full feast for the senses.
