Edge of the World upon us

It’s music festival weekend, so head for Tlell and have fun, fun, fun! It all starts Friday at 5 pm, and continues until Sunday at 6:30 or so, with band after band after band, some local, some not, some good, some hot! The complete schedule is in Islands This Week in this Observer, and some of the highlights include Broken Mirrors, CR Avery, and R.E.D. Local bands on hand include Air Kanada, Honey Brown, Drive In and the Percy Williams Orchestra. The festival this year is dedicated to Joanne Hayward and half the money raised in the loonie-twonie auction goes to the Northern BC Cancer Fund. As well, the lantern parades on Friday and Saturday nights are expected to be extra-special this year, also in memory of Joanne. Organizer Janet Rigg has been working hard on the festival, along with about 100 other volunteers, but is managing to keep the entirely volunteer-drive festival together. “I have a really good crew doing it, they are vary capable,” she said, “the festival is in good hands, I’m not stressed out.” She added that it will be a bit different for her this year, as she won’t have a brand-new baby. She also said the reward for her is seeing everybody enjoying themselves. “I’m happy to sit back and watch the show.” Ms Rigg also notes that if you can’t afford the ticket price, “you can volunteer for eight hours and get a full refund”. The Edge of the World Music Festival. Tlell. This weekend. Don’t miss it!
