“We’re doing more songs than ever this year, everything from Ben Harper and the Five Blind Boys of Alabama to Joe Cocker to Johnny Lang and Mike Ferris,” Dawson says. “We’ll bring back some favourites and we’ve got several originals as well.”
What the band is most excited about is the fact that the two services also raise funds for Cyrus Centre, a Fraser Valley shelter for youth at risk. The shelter, which is open 24/7, 365 days a year, supports at-risk youth in Abbotsford and Chilliwack. Nearly all of their funding comes from donations.
The Good Friday Blues services have raised thousands of dollars for this ministry. For the last two years, a generous donor has agreed to match all donations up to $2500, a goal they’ve met each time. This year, another generous donor has agreed to do the same, which means there is a potential to raise $7500 for Cyrus Centre.
