Rhythm & Cello will kick of the first show of the 2015 Envision Financial Coffee House Concert Series on Saturday, May 16 at Clayburn Gourmet Gallery (3033 Immel St.).

The show runs from  7:30 to 9:30 p.m. and features the live music duo from Vancouver that blends acoustic guitar, cello and vocals.

John Welsh and Stephanie Glegg of Los Amigos have branched out from the high-energy fanfare of their six-piece band to create a unique sound that combines the richness of cello with acoustic rhythms from a variety of genres. Original songs showcase a combination of folk, reggae and Latin styles to satisfy both their fan following and first-time listeners alike.

The duo also performs unique arrangements of familiar songs ranging from classics by the Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel to the world music sound of the Gypsy Kings.

Concertgoers are also encouraged to take part in Envision Financial’s Full Cupboard program by bringing non-perishable food or cash donations benefitting the Abbotsford Food Bank.
