Jeffery Straker House Concert
When: Sunday, March 20 at 7:00pm
Where: R. Ouse Concerts, Graham Heights, Sherwood Park
Enjoy singer-songwriter-pianist Jeffery Straker’s piano-folk-pop music in an intimate house-concert setting in Graham Heights. Often compared to artists like Elton John, Billy Joel, Harry Chapin and Sarah Slean, this is sure to be a show you won’t want to miss. House concerts at R. Ouse provide an extra level of comfort, free from the noise and chatter in a typical bar setting. 100% of the ticket price goes right to the musicians.
