Trio to play on Sunday


Canadian urban folk group the David Myles Trio will bring their “flawless musicianship” and “unforgettable stories” to the Chilkat Center stage at 7 p.m. Sunday.

The show is sponsored by the Haines Arts Council.

Award-winning singer-songwriter David Myles will perform with a backup standup bassist and guitarist.

Heywood described Myles as a combination of Jack Johnson and Buddy Holly. “He’s one of those guys who just doesn’t play song after song after song. He talks about his music, and he has a great sense of humor,” Heywood said.

In addition to his storytelling, Myles is known in Canada for his cross-genre collaborations.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students.
