Blues On Tuesdays
6 pm / 7 pm
Location: Charles Hoey Memorial Park - MNP Stage
If you is a blues lover or wants to be, then be here!
It was decided to continue last year’s commitment to celebrating the blues genre one evening a week where we showcase just some of the many fantastic blues acts that are performing their original blues music all over the Island. Yes, there will be other ‘blues’ showcases throughout the festival but this is the one night of the week you can set aside for sure if you is in fact a true blues lover or are thinking of becoming one... you will be in the right place.
The Cowichan Valley Citizen is a new sponsor to the Blues on Tuesday series and we are most fortunate to have our local award winning Red Arrow Brewery on board again financially this year to help ‘seed’ these evenings of original blues music and great covers of standards… please support these sponsors whenever you can.
We do pass the donation bucket around during these performances to make sure you can too can support the Duncan Cowichan Festival Society’s ideal of proving we do live in... 'a rather fun place to be'.
