DoyleFest Fundraiser                Thurs. 

Capitol Music Club

It started as a birthday party evolved into a festival and now banjo player extraordinaire Eliza Mary Doyle is turning DoyleFest into a non-profit organization that will help kids in our province. Doyle spent part of her winter this year as an artist in residence in Stanley Mission and quickly discovered the need for a regular music program for the students. The money raised will help supply instruments and teachers to its students. To kick off her campaign, Doyle is staging a benefit concert with her musical friends Thursday at the Capitol Music Club. Tickets are $10.
