Mystical musings, music and more happening around Langley

Jan. 15 is a chance to learn about Squickerwonkers.

They are the fantastical characters of Evangeline Lilly in her first book of the same name.

Lilly opens the fourth season of Arts Matters, a lecture series hosted at the Chief Sepass Theatre.

The doors open at 6:30 p.m. when people can hear Lilly, who is probably most know for acting roles in The Hurt Locker, LOST and The Hobbit. She soon begins shooting Marvel’s Antman and is starting to write a series of graphic novels for adults.

Tickets are available online at or at the box office.

The Arts Matter Lecture Series is to bring the arts to the community to celebrate the arts and promote arts education.

Next in the lecture series is musician and composer Alex Cuba Jan. 29.

A new group, King & Cash are Faber Drive’s Jordan Pritchett with country singer Dan Arnold.

With numerous top 10 hits, music videos, and tours with Toby Keith, Brooks & Dunn and many others, Pritchett has gained a significant following.

Marquardt is a singer/songwriter from Ontario.
