Kitchener, Ont.’s Mike Alviano and Victoria-born James Kasper are singer-songwriters who met when both found themselves working at an arts collective in Kitchener in 1999. Since then, although living across the country from each other, the two have become friends and have collaborated for two shows together in the past 13 years

The upcoming Victoria show, tomorrow (July 5) will be the pair’s fourth show together.

Individually in the past dozen years, both Alviano and Kasper have released several albums independently and toured across Canada multiple times. Alviano will play an intimate solo set of his well-crafted catchy folk-pop tunes, and Kasper will be accompanied by multi-faceted harmony singer/guitarist Geoff Howe (collectively known as Kasper & Howe) for a set of gritty harmonica-infused roots-noire ballads and rockers.

The show is at The Well, 821 Fort St. at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets for this all-ages show are $10 at the door. Call 250-590-4995 for more information.
