Event Archive - Hornby Blues: Rick Fines, Samantha Martin, Paul Pigat, David Vest

Sun. May 6th 2018 WISE Hall (All Ages)
8PM doors at 7PM
$14-28
Presented by: The Rogue Folk Club
With Rick Fines, Samantha Martin, Paul Pigat, and David Vest.

The Hornby Island Blues Workshop takes place every spring. They invite a dozen or so of the finest Canadian blues and roots musicians around to share their knowledge and inspiration with some lucky students. We thought - why not catch some of these great players, singers and all-round entertainers, and get them to do a show for us on the way to Hornby? One of Vancouver's own teams up with a master from Victoria and two of the best from Ontario. It's a simple but foolproof formula!

Advance tickets available at roguefolk.bc.ca, Highlife Records, and Tapestry Music Vancouver.
