Ah…Valentine’s Day… A day of love, romance and candy hearts!

Are you one who can’t wait for it to arrive? Is it the best part of winter, a beacon of sunshine in the grey skies of February? Or perhaps you’re one that wishes to avoid it like the plague? Who needs to be reminded about getting your heart trampled on? Maybe you land somewhere in between. Well, no matter what your take is on this holiday about all things love, we have a mus-see event for you!

On Saturday February 8, the girls of Blue Thistle – Tova Olson, Deanna Didriksen, Michelle Kennedy-Hawkins and newest member Jayla Brewer along with their friends Charlene Brown, Carolyn Olson and Kim Denis – will take you on a musical journey through all the ups and downs and ins and outs of that crazy thing we call love.

The concert, aptly entitled “SHADES OF LOVE, the light and dark of the heart”, will have a little bit of something for everyone, such as great arrangements of tunes by the Andrews Sisters, Elvis Presley, the Real Group and even Alanis Morissette. Throw in some great jazz standards, some feel good songs, some crying songs and some pick me up songs, and then add some drums, guitar, bass, keys, brass and saxophones and you have a recipe for a real cooker!

Then to top it off, you can satisfy your taste buds with a savory selection of desserts and beverages.

The Concert will take place Saturday, February 8, 2014 at 7 pm in the Regal Room of the Camrose Resort Casino. Tickets are $29 and are available in advance only from Charlene Brown. Call 780-679-7391 or email Doors will open at 6 pm for cocktail hour with cash bar. Seating will be reserved.

Don’t get caught without a ticket. Last time this gang performed together in December 2012 the concert was sold out!
