Carl Erickson will play two shows at the Snoring Sasqautch on June 29 and 30, joined by three local musicians and a longtime friend from Pennsylvania.
“Cam and I have not seen one another for more than 35 years so this should be a fun night,” said Erickson.
Over the years, Erickson has played saxophone and bass in about 250 recording sessions for other artists, ranging from R&B to country — and even some reggae in Jamaica.
He got his start as a preteen — “My brother took me to see Ray Charles about age 12 and I have never been the same since” — and toured across Canada and the U.S. before coming to Creston two years ago, forming the Hollyhocks with Warren and Kalen Huscroft.
Tickets for each show are $12 in advance, available at Kingfisher Used Books and Black Bear Books, and $15 at the doors, which open at 7 p.m.; the show starts at 8.
