Russell deCarle Concert

SORRY SOLD OUT

In May this year Russell came into Halfmoon Bay to perform. Very quickly word spread and the concert was sold out. Although Coopers Green Hall is a small venue deCarle was appreciative of the audience that turned up that night.

Russell is a native of Ontario, but is best known as bassist and vocalist for the iconic Canadian band Prairie Oyster.

deCarle has just released his new solo album “Alone in this Crowd” and will be promoting it this fall. The album has a southern soul feel, with eight new original songs and three obscure covers

He wants to repay the support given to him by including Coopers Green Hall on his Canadian tour on October 27th.  “ Great audiences bring out the best performances”

deCarle is also bringing guitarist Steve Briggs of Powell River along and will have local boys Joe Stanton and Simon Paradis open for him.

Tickets available at HMB General Store, Welcome Woods Market and Strait Music in Sechelt
