Folk icon Roy Forbes is set to perform at Surrey Arts Centre Nov. 5.

Celebrating 40 years

Canadian icon Roy Forbes brings the folk to Surrey

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.
