Available for Shows/Gigs
Victoria Folk Music Society weekly gathering, Open Stage 7:30pm, Feature Performers The Carolina Bluebirds at 9pm, 1110 Hillside Avenue, $8 cash, Everyone welcome!
The Carolina Bluebirds got their start playing cheerful Ragtime songs of the 1920s and '30s and introducing audiences to rarely-heard gems of the time. Since then, their repertoire has broadened to include Folk, Swing, and Jazz music written by many artists of the latter half of the century, as well as some of their own tasty original tunes.
The Bluebirds are Caroline Covil (vocals and percussion), Graeme Card (guitar, vocals), and Ian Johnston (guitar, ukulele and banjo ukulele). Ian and Graeme are both long-time performing musicians in Victoria. In fact you may have seen Ian playing with Shinndig, Rig-A-Jig, The Slowpokes, and The Garden City Blue Blowers, and Graeme playing with The Jug Bandits, The Chattering Class, and Humphrey and The Dump Trucks. With Caroline's sweet soprano voice that suits the music beautifully and balances the ragtime picking perfectly, The Bluebirds have entertained audiences from the Islands Folk Festival to the markets, folk clubs, and coffee houses around town.
The CBBs can be easily swayed by good music of almost any time and genre and they’ll sway you, too! Favourites of the VFMS, their feature is not to be missed!
