Forty years ago, at the age of eighteen, Roy Forbes journeyed from Dawson Creek to Vancouver with a dream to make music.

Now a Canadian folk icon, Forbes brings his unique, intense guitar playing and high soulful singing to the Surrey Arts Centre’s Studio Theatre on Nov. 5 at 8 p.m. as part of his “40 years a music guy” anniversary concert series.

Forbes, who at one time recorded under the name Bim, will perform as he did in the early years – just him and his Gurian guitar (which will soon hit its own 40-year mark).

Expect to hear some favourites, along with a couple of early tunes that were never recorded, and a few he rarely performs live. Woven among these gems will be stories told in typical Forbes fashion.

Tickets are $27 and $30, available by calling 604-501-5566 or at tickets.surrey.ca

The Surrey Arts Centre is located at 13850 88 Ave.
