Event

Leap into Folk
Leap into Folk with our Folk 'n Fiddle Festival Fundraiser! Enjoy the talents of 3 Victoria based bands in an eclectic night of Bluegrass, Country Swing and Indie Folk. Dust off your dance shoes, get out of the rain and come celebrate the Leap Year with us!

Side By Side began performing together about four years ago as friends getting together for just the plain fun of playing music. Over time a repertoire and style began to evolve and since then theyve played out in a number of venues centered in greater Victoria. Happily, the spirit and friendship of playing for the fun of it has survived and remains a strong component of the Side By Sides music. Their renditions of folk, country and swing tunes reflect the energy of their friendship and their love of music they perform.

Auburn Blind is an indie/folk band comprised of three classically trained, multi-instrumentalist musicians who have joined forces over coffee, laughter, and the rigorous world of classical music. With Jessicas pure and lyrical voice on lead vocals, Shima with their multi instrumental and arranging talent, and Erin with their rich cello lines, their music creatively explores the human experience with power, intimacy, and humour, resulting in a unique and inviting take on the indie/folk sound. Originally playing as a string trio (Jess on viola, Shima on violin, Erin on Cello) to enrich the sounds of local bands Current Swell (Rifflandia), and Fox Glove (Rock the Shores, Let the Love In, EP recording), they wowed the Alix Goolden Hall crowd at the 2019 Love In with their rendition of Aint No Sunshine, and have taken off since then!  Their classical chops, applied to a love of song-writing and arranging, ability to play multiple instruments, and soulful vocal harmonies, create a wonderfully diverse and original range of sounds and moods, publicly premiered at the Wood Stove Festival in Cumberland late in 2019.  They are currently composing for their upcoming album, and public Oak Bay Concert on March 14, 2020.

Mike, Josh & Jim have been playing as an acoustic trio for nearly eight years, but they have been friends for much longer. All three have been musicians for as long as they can remember. Their warm three-part harmonies and ability to weave in and out of multiple styles gives the band a unique and eclectic sound. Whether playing original songs or their exciting arrangements of all sorts of timeless music, they make it a point to make their shows fun, spontaneous, a bit silly and always very sincere.
