Brother and sister duo Shelley and Doug Thring who perform together as Everythring are coming to the Bonnington Arts Centre, located at the Nakusp Elementary School on Saturday Feb. 7. Blues-rock based covers from the likes of Etta James, Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt and even Adele are part of this pair’s repertoire.

Doug and Shelley Thring were born and raised in New Denver. They developed a love of music early, having grown up in a musical family. Doug drummed in an area rock n’ roll band before college where he turned his focus to guitar. He has performed in various locations in the Okanagan and Vancouver Island as a solo artist, in duos and in rock and blues bands. Shelley sang for over 20 years with the Valhalla Community Choir, the Slocan Valley Orchestra and the local rock and blues band, Dirty Laundry. Doug hails from Nanaimo and Shelley has recently relocated to Nakusp.

Sponsored by the Arrow Lakes & Region Arts Council (ALAC), Everythring is the first in a new musical series by local area artists. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Admission at the door is $6 per person or $10 per couple.  There is no charge for Arts Council seasons tickets holders.
