James shares the stage with Cyndi Doell

Nanaimo musician Howie James is returning to the stage.

James suffered a broken shoulder and hasn’t been able to perform for eight months, but now he’s back in performance form.

“It’s like coming out of a long, lonesome, hard tunnel. I’ve never been in so much pain in my life,” said James about his recovery.

He shares the stage with Cyndi Doell at Country Club Centre June 29 at 2 p.m. The concert will be free to attend.

James said the duo will be performing old favourites such as Chattanooga Choo Choo and some songs by Frank Sinatra.

“We do a lot of old songs, but we try to keep it up tempo,” said James.

James has shared the stage with musicians such as Buff Allan, Bill Cave, Pat Coleman, Ken Lister and others.
