The Folkn’Fiddle Festival is back for three days and nights of music June 10-12 in Sidney, BC. Featuring a mix of Americana, Roma-Swing, Singer-Songwriters, Bluegrass and Cuban music, the festival’s 20 artists and bands have been curated into four gala concerts at The Charlie White Theatre, three Cabaret nights at The Sidney Army/Navy and a special concert Saturday Night at St. Paul's Church for double vaccinated guests.
Headlining artists the Good Lovelies are well known to folk and roots music fans with nine critically acclaimed releases, a #1 single, a JUNO Award, and a devoted fanbase blanketing the globe. The hardworking trio of Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough, and Susan Passmore are guitar-wielding songwriters and queens of the goose bump–raising three-part harmony. They are joined Saturday June 11th by the JUNO nominated Small Glories and prodigious Bluegrass guitarist and singer Ella Korth. The Good Lovelies also play a special Matinee concert Saturday with Canadian Folk legend and two-time JUNO winner Shari Ulrich, who headlines Friday night with the Polaris-listed Twin Bandit, and two-time Maple Blues award winner Ann Vriend.
Sunday Night at Charlie White will be a celebration of instrumental virtuosity and vocal prowess, featuring Romanian Master Violinist Lache Cercel; a world leader in and innovator in the Roma Swing genre, as well as Cuban-born pianist Pablo Cardenas and Vancouver’s Petunia and The Vipers.
For those who prefer to tap their toes or hit the dance floor, The Festival Cabaret at Sidney Army/Navy is the place to be. The Small Glories, Ann Vriend, Petunia & The Vipers, Twin Bandit, Pablo Cardenas, and Ella Korth will all perform at the Festival Cabaret, in addition to folk-rock environmentalist Luke Wallace, five-time Grand North American Fiddle Champion Ivonne Hernandez, Bluegrass songwriter Jenny Lester, and folk-pop piano player Ashley Wey.
Folkn’Fiddle Festival will also be offering a special concert Saturday evening at St Paul’s United Church(2410 Malaview ave) for exclusively double vaccinated attendance featuring Lache Cercel & The Roma Swing Ensemble and Ann Vriend. All attendance must provide proof of double Vaccination.
