Six String Nation’s Voyageur guitar comes to Port Hardy Secondary School

The presentation at the school is one of many showings Jowi Taylor is putting on in Port Hardy.

Jowi Taylor of the Six String Nation brought what could be considered a nationally famous guitar, Voyageur, to town. Taylor had brought the 64 piece guitar earlier today to Port Hardy Secondary School, where one student was able to pick up the guitar and show off a few his musical skills to peers.

The student, Ben Coward, played a few songs after Taylor presented a multimedia presentation on Six String Nation to the high school assembly. One teacher also had the chance to hold and play Voyageur, which has travelled across the nation.

Taylor will also be holding a showing at the Port Hardy Civic Centre tomorrow evening, Saturday, Nov. 17 starting at 7:00 p.m., where two locals, Jeremy Parker and Cody Woelfle, will have another opportunity to play the guitar. The North Island Children’s Choir and Sisters of Song will also be part of the North Island Concert Society’s showing.

Last minute tickets are available at Port Hardy Visitor Centre, Cafe Guido, Port Hardy Museum, and Flora Borealis. Tickets are also available online at Tickets for adults are $35 or $10 for students (under 18).
