The Fly and Camel Café


Folk and Flamenco

in support of Refuge Winnipeg

If you missed the outstanding performance by Jeffery Straker in April, you owe it to yourself to come out on May 14th for our second ‘Fly and Camel Café’ of the spring season.

 The evening will kick off with some classic folk by the Seine River Boys – Dylan, Lightfoot, Cockburn, Joni and more, all performed with a smile on guitar, banjo, mandolin, and upright bass. The Seine River Boys are Ted Parnell-Best, Jonathan Wong and Chuck Kroeker from the St. Mary’s Road congregation whose 2012 collaboration ‘Eighty Strings’ has raised over $6000 for Hospitality House Refugee Ministry.

Our headliners are the sensational Flamenco duo of dancer Maritel Centurión and guitarist Philippe Meunier. Maritel was born in Argentina and received formal dance training in Canada. She has long been recognized as one of Canada’s leading exponents of Spanish dance and has performed all over Canada and recently in Valencia, Spain. Philippe is originally from Québec but has been based in Winnipeg for many years now. He has performed across Canada and has been featured on CBC Radio. Recently he was awarded a prestigious Canada Arts Council grant which will take him to Seville, Spain for further study this summer.

All proceeds from this edition of the Fly and Camel Café will be donated to Refuge Winnipeg. Refuge is a multi-faith partnership which includes our congregation that is supporting three Syrian refugee families that arrived in Winnipeg last fall.
