Duo of Duos Concert at Simms Park This Weekend

August 5, 2014

Duo of Duos take the stage this Sunday August 10 at 7:00pm at Simms Park as part of a free summer concert series hosted by the City of Courtenay.

This concert combines two popular local duos, Mary Murphy with guitarist Paul Keim and Sue Medley with keyboardist John Mang. Mary Murphy with Paul Keim performs traditional, original and contemporary Irish music. Mary’s music gifts those with Irish roots a taste of inheritance, and ushers those who wish they were a wee bit Irish, into an ephemeral union.

Sue Medley is a Juno award winner performing with John Mang. Sue’s music has been described as tough & tender and also seasoned & sweet. She is known for turning vulnerable lyrics into heart wrenching ballads.

Other featured Simms Park performances include The Blues Legends with local blues artists on August 17, XLR8 performing a rock ‘n roll extravaganza on August 24 and Ralph Barrat and the Sharp 7 performing popular jazz favorites on August 31.
