Lighten up solstice
Lighten up your winter solstice at the annual Celebration of Light on tomorrow at 7 p.m. at Campbell River’s Maritime Heritage Centre.
An all inclusive family event, the Celebration highlights seven attributes of Spirit, bringing light into the darkest part of the year with candles and music. This year’s special musical inspiration will be provided by local musician Noelle Maffin and well-known New Thought singer-songwriter Eddie Watkins Jr.
Noelle Maffin has performed in NYC, Vancouver, Edmonton and up and down Vancouver Island. One of Noelles’ great passions is singing jazz at local venues with her jazz trio. More recently, Noelle has been delving into the “New Thought” genre, exploring the power and meaning of Spirit.
Performing locally for the first time, Eddie Watkins Jr. was recording for Motown Records, playing bass with the Temptations and other Motown musicians, by the age of 17. He has recorded with Marvin Gaye, Quincy Jones, James Brown, Cher, Patti LaBelle, and many other well known artists. He now dedicates his life to writing and singing uplifting music.
The community is invited to attend this event, as an inspirational way to acknowledge the holiday season. It will be followed by potluck appys and desserts. Donations gratefully received.
