Chili with Charlie evening coming to community centre

The Peter Lougheed Community Centre in Rimbey will be the place to be next Saturday for anyone who wants to enjoy some good old fashioned food and music while helping to promote a good cause.

The Charlie Jacobson Band will entertain at the Fifties Fiesta, Chili with Charlie, a fundraiser for the 2016 solar powered music festival to be held this summer, will be held Dec. 5 at the community centre.

Tyson Prior from Rimbey will open for The Charlie Jacobson Band who will headline the show.

Jacobson, a passionate blues/rock singer/songwriter said he is an old soul, living in a young guy.

“I’ve always loved the old music,” he said, adding he his parents are also musicians and he grew up with music.

“I love it, it is my passion, my calling.”

Although only in his early 20s, Jacobson has performed across the Canadian prairies and in the Rockies. He has also performed at the Monkey Top in Bentley.

He is looking forward to playing in Rimbey and wants the event to be similar to an old style country hall dance.

Tyson Prior, a singer/songwriter from Rimbey will open for Jacobson.

Prior, a musician who performs blues, bluegrass and old blues tunes, is thrilled to be opening for Jacobson.

“I’m honored to be opening up for Charlie,” he said. “It’s a true honor to share the stage with someone I admire. He truly is a groovy cat and the crowd won’t be disappointed.”

Prior moved to Rimbey after meeting his wife, Courtney here. The couple have two girls, aged five and six.

Funding from the Fifties Fiesta will go towards the 2016 solar powered music festival to be held next summer, said Karen Magee.

Last year, The Weayaya solar powered music festival was held on her acreage located west of Forshee Hall on the Blindman River. She said the festival was held to promote Alberta talent and also to demonstrate that solar technology is a viable alternative to petroleum, coal and nuclear energy.

Weayaya is Sioux for setting sun and symbolizes the end of an era and the down of a new one.

Tickets for the event are available at Stationery Stories & Sounds.
