Jeffery Straker concert in Swift Current, Feb. 1, 2018

Written by 

Folk-pop singer-songwriter and pianist Jeffery Straker performed at Central School in Swift Current, Feb. 1. He played songs from his different albums, including the full-length recording Dirt Road Confessional that was released in May 2017. He has been touring in Canada and Europe during the past year and his touring schedule during 2018 will include trips to Mexico and the Netherlands. He will again be a member of the national cast at Telemiracle 42 on March 3 and 4. His concert in Swift Current helped to kickstart Central School's fundraising campaign for Telemiracle. The 50/50 and silent auction at the concert raised $3,014 for Telemiracle. The Central School choir and bucket drummers will be performing at Telemiracle on March 4 and the school wants to raise as much funds as possible to take to Regina. There will be a Valentine's Day bake sale at the Swift Current Mall on Feb. 10, starting at 10 a.m. The Central School choir will be performing throughout the morning at this event. The school's other fundraising events include a talent show for students and families on Feb. 28 and the school's spirit club is also organizing activities to raise money.
