Folk ’n Fiddle Festival 2020
Leap into Folk!
February 29, 2020
The Shoal Centre, Sidney
Auburn Blind is an indie/folk band comprised of three classically train lti- instrumentalist musicians who have joined forces over coﬀee, laughter, and the rigorous world of classical music. The three Victoria- based musicians have embarked on a journey to create their own sound as more than just a string group. Combining their classical chops to their love of songwriting and soulful harmonies, the group transitioned from back-up strings into a band with a unique twist to the indie/folk scene.
Side by Side
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 they’ve 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 Side’s music. Their renditions of folk, country and swing tunes reflect the energy of their friendship and their love of music they perform.
Mike, Josh & Jim
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.
