It's all over now for 2016 -- what a great time we had... We'll see you all again in 2017. Watch this space for news, as we get to work on our next festival!

The Spinney Brother The 2016 festival provided the opportunity to see the Spinney Brothers here on the West Coast. This multi-award winning group is in great demand anywhere that blugrass music is enjoyed, so we are particularly proud to have had them here in Chemainus for our 2016 festival.

The fun continued with FarmStrong, a group with some wonderful vocal harmonies, visiting us from Washington. Vancouver Island's favourite group of bluegrass guys, the Clover Point Drifters, were also on hand. And this year we had a special treat with Harmony Ridge & Friends, which is made up of the duo of Mike "Boomer" Boyd (guitar) and Luann Burton (bass), joined by those great bluegrass musicians, Bill Smith (banjo) and Max Pagani (mandolin).

The 2016 festival's host band was once again Bluegrass Fever, a band that is always highly appreciated by the crowd. To top it off, we had the Song Sisters, who played for a brief set in 2015, and were so well-liked that we asked them back again in 2016 to play a longer set for us.

It will be a great line-up this year, so don't miss it!

Thank you very much to our 2016 sponsors - please consider joining them in 2017...
