Joel Willoughby Takes Stage In Week One Of Coffee House Series

By May 15, 2014Arts/Culture

Submitted. On May 17 from 7:30PM to 9:30PM, the Envision Financial Coffee House Concert Series is proud to present Joel Willoughby at Wired Monk McCallum (111 – 1975 McCallum Road) in Abbotsford.

Pop singer-songwriter Joel Willoughby absorbed plenty of culture in his youth, growing up overseas with globe-trotting parents. With such varied life experiences, Joel’s well-traveled soul can’t help but show up in his music. His music has elements of indie-rock with brit-pop sensibilities akin to Josh Rouse and the artful, ambient touches of Death Cab for Cutie.

Joel has been writing and performing in various bands for over ten years and has shared the stage with bands and songwriters alike – at folk fests, clubs and coffeehouses around the Northwestern U.S. and Canada. His music has also been featured on the CBC television show, Heartland.

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