Festival looking for local musicians

  • Mar. 26, 2007 3:00 p.m.

Submitted by Pat Carrie Smith for the Edge of the World Music Festival-Music festival 2007 will look like a whole new event, and it will happen in August. Mark your calendars for August 10, 11 and 12 and come to the Tlell Fall Fairgrounds to hear and dance to our off-island headliners and featured off-island guest performers.
We need a local headliner and some local talent performers to complete our program.
The last date to apply is April 30! This is an extension from April 15, and it is the last possible date. Local slots are more limited in 2007 than last year. Your chances are better if you get your name/band in early. Contact the artistic co-director, Charley Robertson, at chedrob@hotmail.com or 626-6075. Look for the application form on www.edgefestival.com.
Our off-island headliners this year are Brickhouse, a hot Vancouver blues/funk dance band, Todd Butler of CBC’s Madly Off in All Directions, with outrageous comedy and music from ballads to bluegrass and reggae, and Cousin Harley, heading a rockabilly and roots band with country swing. Our special headlining artists will be the newly-formed Helene Duguay / Murray Porter Band, two veteran aboriginal performers teamed up with bass and drums to give us a blues dance experience.
