A second edition of Music Memories is back by popular demand.

The entertaining variety show, staged by local seniors, will feature music by Rob Orbison, Tammy Wynette and of course - Elvis.

Singers Bill Angus, Karen Cholette and Wayne Legreely will keep audiences laughing with impersonations that have won acclaim at the legion’s karaoke night.

Katy Cyr will be playing western classics on her guitar and thrill you with some skilful “yodelling”.

Doug Robinson, who won the senior idol contest last year, will also be featured.

“After last spring’s successful performance, we have again put together a group of experienced singers, along with the Hawaiian Dancers and the jazz and tap group from the seniors’ centre, to bring an afternoon of song and dance for all to enjoy,” said concert organizer Phyllis Rathbone.
