Argyll students dance to Van Morrison

Argyll School of Performing Arts and Motion takes to the stage at Powerhouse Theatre to pay tribute to singer-songwriter Van Morrison.

On Sunday, at 2 p.m., the Argyll School of Performing Arts and Motion, and friends, will take to the stage at the Powerhouse Theatre to pay tribute to singer-songwriter Van Morrison.

Twenty dancers along with 13 musicians from the bands Amistad, Barefoot Caravan and Kilt 45 will perform a number of Morrison’s classics in the hopes to raise money for Kiss FM’s Santa’s Toy Club.

“(We) selected Van Morrison’s work to pay homage to the creativity, complexity and pure artistry of his work, which is nothing short of magnificent,” said the show’s producers Jennifer Harpe and Janet Hackman.

Born in Northern Ireland, Morrison was just 12 years old when he formed his first band.

Since then his work has changed, progressed, and evolved over the scope of his career.

Three of Morrison’s songs were included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 songs that shaped rock and roll: Brown Eyed Girl, Madame George and Moondance, all of which will be featured in Sunday’s show.

Tickets for Into the Mystic are available through Ticket Seller in the Performing Arts Centre (549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca)  as well as at the door to Powerhouse Theatre.

All of the proceeds from the show will be donated to Santa’s Toy Club.
