A percussionist and pianist duo will be performing their unique blend of music in Fernie this week.

Percussionist Joe Porter and pianist Joel Goodfellow will join forces for two evening concerts at the Mountainside Community Church in Fernie.

Reserve an evening on either August 6 or 7 at 7 p.m. for an unforgettable piano percussion performance.

Tickets: $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and youth.
