Sat. Feb. 23 @ 8:00 pm   $20 @ the BAG & Anna’s Interiors
JIM BYRNES in ConcertJim Byrnes moved to Vancouver, BC in the mid-70s after years of drifting, working odd jobs and playing music. In 1981 he put together a band that became a staple of the local music scene. His fame as an actor has grown immeasurably from his too-numerous-to mention TV roles, with highlights including television’s Wiseguy and Highlander series, and his own national variety show, The Jim Byrnes Show. Jim has proven that a serious car accident in 1972 has done anything but hinder him. Despite two swipes with death and some pretty hard knocks, Jim’s first love is the blues. His evocative, smoky vocals are found in a truth that doesn’t come overnight.

You may have heard that the Brackendale Art Gallery is for sale. Alas, it is true.
Thor is 85 with all that entails. It is time.
We are however very open to ideas and options we may not yet have heard or considered.
In the mean time it is business as usual!
