Kenn Kardish is our Special guest this month. Kenn began his singing career in Victoria where he and his wife Fran performed mostly at senior’s residences, the Victoria Icelandic Club, the Victoria Ukrainian Association, the Victoria Holland Club, Elks Clubs, Eagles Clubs and Legions on Southern Vancouver Island. While in Victoria, he was a member of the all male Greater Victoria Police Chorus where he sang second tenor. The Chorus toured the United Kingdom, Alberta and British Columbia over the years.
They moved from Victoria to Calgary in 2001. They entertained at a variety of venues in Alberta for many years and during 13 winters spent in Arizona were part of a band called “Desert Coyotes” with many engagements in the Mesa and Apache Junction areas. Kenn and his wife were victims of the monumental Alberta flood of 2013, after which they moved to West Kelowna.
