One of the main working ideas for The Galiano Music Fesitval was that we wanted to celebrate local talent (and local in this case meant the Gulf Islands). There are many personal and business connections between the islands, and there are many connections between artists.
Pages from the Oak Tree,
comes fresh from winning the Battle of the Bands, which was held a few weeks ago with bands representing many of the Gulf Islands. Pages is coming from Pender island to play for us on Aug. 5th.
Starting as street performers in Victoria, Pages from the Oak Tree are something between Louisiana Blues and Eastern European old time. Bringing a Baltic twist to a warm folk sound and covering it in a heavy dose of foot stomping rhythm and heart warming harmonies. These three folks blend six instruments into a macabre sing-a-long and pour it over a waltzing old-time mosh pit.
Don’t miss them. Scheduled times of performance will appear on the website the day before the event.
