Ven­er­a­ble church to fea­ture Wal­lace

The Casket - - Health & Wellness -

As part of the cel­e­bra­tions lead­ing up to the 150th an­niver­sary of King's United Church in July, well-known Antigo­nish record­ing artist, Tyrus Wal­lace will per­form at the church Sun­day, Oct. 28. Show­time is 2 p.m.

“Tyrus is blest with a rich, bari­tone voice and a way with a song that im­me­di­ately cap­tures his au­di­ence's at­ten­tion and emo­tions,” church pub­li­cist Mar­jorie Machat­tie said in a press re­lease.

He also plays a va­ri­ety of in­stru­ments, in­clud­ing gui­tar, bass, fid­dle, man­dolin, drums, and the five-string banjo.

Wal­lace started play­ing gui­tar at eight-year-old, be­gin­ning a mu­si­cal jour­ney with his un­cle, Am­brose Wal­lace, when he was 12, in a band called The Coun­try Swing­sters.

He has per­formed with a va­ri­ety of groups over the years, in­clud­ing Back Tracks, from 1999 to 2013.

“We dis­con­tin­ued due to band mem­bers work sched­ules which made it dif­fi­cult to con­tinue as a group,” he ex­plained.

“I've since ven­tured on my own as a solo per­former and reg­u­larly pro­vide mu­sic for fu­ner­als, wed­dings, fam­ily func­tions, con­certs, dances, var­i­ous pri­vate func­tions as well as con­tin­u­ing to vol­un­teer at the lo­cal nurs­ing homes.

Wal­lace is also a mem­ber of St. Mary's Choir in Mary­vale, Antigo­nish County.

His song­writ­ing is mainly in the coun­try-western genre, although in the last few years he has added gospel.

Wal­lace re­leased his first CD The Old Rugged Cross - in 2012.

King's United Church is lo­cated on a hill above South River Lake in Loch Katrine, Antigo­nish County.

Tick­ets for the show, avail­able at the door, are $10.

There will also be a silent auc­tion and can­teen.

Pro­ceeds from this con­cert will go to the 150th an­niver­sary plan­ning com­mit­tee.

Doors open at 1:30 p.m.

For in­for­ma­tion, call Machat­tie at 902-783-2182.
