Dear Editor,

On behalf of the GoGo Grannies, I would like to invite everyone to attend our special concert on September 30 at the Key City Theatre in Cranbrook at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $25; $15 for students and are available at Lotus Books and at the Key Box Office. Phone 250-426-7006 or email keycitytheatre.com to hold tickets for pick-up.

When was the last time you heard a harp live? There is a reason this is considered the “instrument of angels.” You’ll recognize the songs presented by Bronn Journey and his wife Katherine — you may even be tempted to hum along.

To add to the excitement and fun, our local “Good Ol’ Goats” (they’re anything but old — 16 and 17-year-old students), who are just releasing their first CD, will be our introductory group. These kids are creating quite a stir, and should present some great tunes.

The proceeds will be sent to the Stephen Lewis Foundation Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign to help grandmothers in Africa raise their grandchildren orphaned by the AIDS epidemic.

I encourage everyone to come out on a Sunday afternoon, bring the kids and grandparents and enjoy some lovely music.

Thank you,

Ingrid Carlgren

GoGo Grannies of Cranbrook, Kimberley and Wasa
