Former Island Girl returns for evening of Scottish music

"One of Campbell River’s prodigal daughters returns for a house concert in Merville on Saturday at 7 p.m.

You’ll have the great pleasure of hearing the music of two young musicians from the Scottish music scene, who will entertain you with songs and an assortment of instruments including pipes, flute, whistle, guitar and bodhran.

Marissa Vachon is originally from Campbell River and at age 10 was one of the founding members of The Island Girls, who you may remember as a lively band of girls playing Celtic music locally for quite a few years. During that time they put out four CDs and toured extensively in Canada and Europe."
