    May 06 ~ The Sweet Lowdown Canadian roots trio and Victoria favourites T h e S w e e t L o w d o w n — A m a n d a Bl ied (guitar), Miriam Sonstenes (fiddle), Tad Ruszel (mandolin)—based on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, developed original acoustic roots music that draws from both Appalachian & Celtic influences, and embodies that particularly Canadian blend of driving tradition and ground-breaking originality.

    Gaining critical acclaim wherever their music takes them, The Sweet Lowdown have accomplished much in the past

    10  years. With three full-length albums, an EP, and numerous awards and award nominations, the group has toured Canada, the U.S. and the U.K.

    In 2017 banjo player and founding member Shanti Bremer left the band to pursue other goals. In 2018 Tad Ruszel joined the group, bringing distinctive vocals and skillful mandolin playing. Expect to hear much of The Sweet Lowdown’s original material with a slight new twist, along with brand new music penned by all three members.

    May 20 ~ Blackthorn Blackthorn features four talented mus- icians, three of whom share lead vocals, bringing a refreshing diversity of char- acter to the group’s polished sound and all four contribute a mastery of a colour- ful variety of instruments. The results of their collective musical backgrounds, skills, and experience are witnessed in the high-calibre, entertaining performances they consistently deliver to audiences of all ages.

    Blackthorn’s extensive repertoire is rooted in the musical traditions of Scotland & Ireland as well as the folk music of English & French Canada. Their repertoire has expanded to include creative original compositions that reflect the influences of these traditions. From lively jigs and reels, to songs with rousing choruses and heart- wrenching airs and ballads, they bring the music to life with their luscious harmonies and complex instrumentation.

    May 13 ~ East Van Jug Band New to our stage, The East Van Jug Band specializes in traditional jug band music. They play favourites and lesser- known selections by The Memphis Jug Band, Jelly Roll Morton, and other pioneers of 1920s Americana; as well as original music rooted in the tradition. This band blurs the lines between folk, country, jazz, ragtime, and chamber music, and has a blast while doing so!

    Featuring Clara Rose (violin; The End  Tree, Oliver Schroer’s Twisted String, The Burying Ground), Jack Ray (banjo; Milk Crate Bandits, Angus & Julia Stone), Arnt Arntzen (guitar, banjo; The Brothers Arntzen, Vince Giordano & the Nighthawks), and Jen Hodge (bass; Jen Hodge All Stars, Company B Jazz Band, Bria Skonberg), this group produces a joyful and rhythmic feeling in all who hear them.

    May 27 ~ Just Duets Returning to our stage, Vancouver-based Just Duets is Andrea Smith and Dave Lidstone in a musical collaboration of wonderful sibling-like vocal harmonies with solid guitar accompaniment. Their early influences included masterful duets such as Ian & Sylvia Tyson, Tim & Molly O’Brien, and Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings. Over time Andrea and Dave

    have developed their own vocal blend and a repertoire that is more broadly researched. Their 2016 CD release “Rivers & Creeks” followed a 2007 release called “Get On Board”. Both these projects reflect their choice of material consist- ing of songs of Life and Love that reflect a commitment to social justice, to Canadian roots, and to poetry in song.
