Luke Wallace, a travelling musician from British Columbia, is performing at 6:30 p.m. on May 3 at the Lopez Center. This performance is a fundraiser for the Lopez Island School Garden. Wallace visits a variety of schools, showcasing different acts such as presentations, singing and playing instruments.
Wallace first started playing music at age 10, mostly focusing on the trumpet. At age 13, he started playing in an orchestra, giving himself a chance to play and share his talent with others. When he was in high school, he started strumming on the guitar. He was very interested in this instrument, and with lots of support from his parents, he started writing songs. He performed lots of music he wrote at coffee shops in British Columbia.
He is now famously known for folk music, performing in schools throughout Canada, but he didn’t even start with music. Rather, he gave presentations on global warming and climate change in schools. This morphed into music and educational songs.
Come down to the performance to support our school garden for many more years of education, and healthy food.
