About the Walbran
After massive protests and public outcry in the early 1990’s over proposed clear-cutting in the Carmanah and Walbran Valleys, the provincial government created the Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park. While the park protects some incredible forest, the government left the roughly 500-hectare Central Walbran Valley out of the park. The Central Walbran contains arguably the most impressive and massive trees on the Island, in areas like the Castle Grove and Black Diamond Grove. Now a new company, Teal Jones, has its sights set on these giants, with only groups like the Wilderness Committee standing in the way. 


Carmanah embraces the energy of Canada’s beautiful west coast and chose its name to honour the ancient rainforest on Vancouver Island, the Carmanah Valley.  Known for connecting with audiences of all ages and musical preferences, the band delivers an eclectic sound that incorporates elements of folk, funk, rock and reggae.  Four-part harmonies, supported by a grooving rhythm second, fiddle playing, guitars and a lap-slide, all give Carmanah its unique and captivating sound.
