Abbotsford will be among the first tour stops in 2015 for Canadian musician Steve Bell, who has just received a highly unique Juno nomination for his latest album, Pilgrimage.

The singer/songwriter/storyteller has picked up two Junos in the past, and has been nominated for this year’s Junos in the category of recording package of the year.

To mark the occasion of his 25th anniversary as a solo artist, Bell released a four-disc box-set that includes a CD of brand-new material plus an accompanying book. Bell asked Winnipeg graphic artist Roberta Hansen to design the box-set.

If Pilgrimage should win, the Juno will go to Hansen, as well as photographer Mike Latschislaw.

He will perform in Abbotsford on Friday, Feb. 27 at 7:30 p.m. at Abbotsford Christian School and Sunday, March 1 at 7:30 p.m. at Ross Road Community Church. Information and tickets are available at www.stevebell.com.
