Eric Harper (Saturday Dec. 15th) 2pm

Enjoy award-winning musician Eric Harper and his fiery Flamenco guitar. Highly engaging performances involving audience participation, improvisation and writing tunes on-the-spot. The music and often hilarious stories are about his travels throughout the world. From the US to Portugal, from Spain to Israel, From Switzerland to China and back to the US to Canada. Eric’s mischievous mix of storytelling, singing, and virtuoso guitar-playing, make concert experiences an inspiring performance of the human spirit.”

Dennis Atkins (Sunday, December 16th ) 12pm

Born on the prairies and raised on rock and roll country, Dennis took to music like wheat takes to gold. He learned to pick a guitar at 16 with the best musicians Manitoba had to offer. Metis through and through, he takes our Canadian past and delivers melodic memories here and now. He takes old time tunes and makes them his own. With historical lyrics and a crooner’s voice, his original songs blend with our favourite oldies seamlessly. Moved from the prairies and firmly rooted on the west coast, this versatile professional is sure to please all audiences.

“From Manitoba, now a Valley resident, Dennis’ approach to roots country is most satisfying and highly recommended…” 

 -Longevity John, 39 Days of July, Cowichan Valley, BC.

We are thrilled to have an amazing line up of musicians join us at our winter market and can’t wait to share our excitement with you!
