Music Makers welcomes the return of two popular local musicians at the Tea à Tempo concert on July 24. The appearance of David Storm and Bill Morrison is sure to be an uplifting afternoon of music for fans of the summer series. When the pair met a few years ago, they discovered a shared joy in playing music together. Since Bill was 70 and David was about to turn 70 at the time they met, it was inevitable they call themselves “The 270’s”!

David Storm has been the Organist, Pianist and Music Director of the Anglican Parish of Salt Spring for almost 16 years. Since moving to Salt Spring Island from Vancouver in 2005, he has participated in numerous Music & Munch and Tea à Tempo concerts over the years. David has played gigs at Meadowbrook, Greenwoods, Heritage Place and Lady Minto Hospital Intensive Care with a number of different musicians. He was the Accompanist of the Salt Spring Singers Choir for 5 years.

Victoria native, Bill Morrison, was Lead Singer of the eight-piece R&B Dance Band “Backstage Betty” for 10 years. Over the past few years, Bill has continued to perform with the “Jukebox Junkies”.

When the pair got together just as COVID hit, they started with a plan to play the music of Elton John and Billy Joel. Their repertoire now also includes artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Paul Simon, The Eagles, and Bruce Springsteen. Bill is happy to be the singer as David looks after all accompaniment on his Roland RD-2000 digital piano.

Concert begins at 2:10 PM. Donations provide the honoraria for performers and contribute to the running of the Tea à Tempo series.

Tea and Treats, for $5.00 (price change), will be served immediately following the concert in the hall overlooking Ganges Harbour. Patrons should note that All Saints’ cooling system makes it the place to be on a hot summer day!

So bring a friend or visitor to the Island, enjoy some excellent music by these two seasoned local performers, and then have a delicious treat afterwards.

Food, friends, and music! What more could you ask for? Hope to see you there.
