Sunday July 1
11am Woodruff Marimba - Jenny from Shawnigan Lake has a student marimba band and it seemed a good way to start off Canada Day.
Noon Steve McKinnon Trio - Steve brings along sidemen Bent on electric guitar and Jon on stand-up bass to aid him while he performs originals and the occasional cover that he honours thrown in.
1pm Joe Charron - heard about this country folk /roots singer - songwriter on CBC some 25 years ago and he is still bringing on the new tunes and a new CD.
2pm Clancy’s Front Porch - multi-instrumentalist trio from Victoria that are here so you can hear traditional folk as they play it.
3pm PixElle - Cara / Naomi / Tanya are all singer/songwriters that combined their deliveries to support each other’s music.
4pm Tropic Mayhem - time to wear your beach wear as Andy McCormack and crew bring on the beach party music for your dancin’ and listenin’ pleasures.
5pm Lapp / Dobres / Dolan - spontaneous traditional folk? wild celtic? Knowing these three I would say superb music will be performed however you want to describe their musical journey.
6pm Kendall Patrick Band - Kendall writes and sings indie-rock, Nico Rhodes is on keys, Caleb on drums, Max Frazer on bass... very powerful and fun.
7pm Groove Social - Scott MaGill has the r&b /soul/pop vocals and his rhythm section comes along just to guarantee you will move, if only in your chairs.
Don't miss it!
Sunday July 1, 8:30pm
City Square Stage
** NOTE: there are no fireworks planned for Canada Day due to weather restrictions (do join your neighbours on the last Friday of November for Xmas Light –Up when the City of Duncan ‘lights up the sky’ )
All of these scheduled musical events are designed to bring community together to celebrate our diverse local / Canadian and international music scenes, to give the opportunity to meet our neighbours, share a common experience and hopefully be able to now greet each other with a friendly smile on any future happen chance connections we are proving that downtown Duncan and the Cowichan Valley is... ‘a rather fun place to be’.
