A former Rimbey Christian School student entertained the crowd at the school’s fundraiser last week with some well-known country songs as well as a few songs he had written himself.

Seth Dolman, 23, attended the Christian School from Kindergarten to Grade 9, so he was quite at home at the fundraiser. He said his mom, Marj was in attendance as well as aunts, uncles and cousins.

He enjoys playing the guitar and writing his own lyrics. While on stage he performed Girl Around the Corner, Carry On and Coming Home, all songs he has written. He also played and sang popular country songs Chances Are, Folson Prison Blues and The Gambler.

Dolman said he has written lyrics for a few years, but only took up guitar playing a couple of years ago. He is self-taught and has used an app on his phone to figure out chords and musical arrangements.

Writing lyrics comes naturally to Dolman.

“They just appear for me,” he said.

While he enjoys playing and writing songs, he has no plans to pursue a music career.

“It’s more of a hobby,” he said. “I’ve never recorded anything.”

Dolman is presently attending Lethbridge University working towards an environmental science degree. He previously attended Lakeland College where he studied Wildlife/Fisheries Conservation. His career goal is to be a fisheries biologist.

The personable young man said attending a school like Rimbey Christian has many positives.

“The atmosphere is really good. Everyone knows everyone. It was good. I really enjoyed it.”
