Vancouver Island Music Festival 2015

What a great weekend! Not even the rain could ruin the wonderful music we were treated to. Lyle Lovett and his Large Band were stellar. 14 musicians on stage and coils they shake it. Some of the most polished tunes you’ll ever hear. The band included: Lyle Lovett.
John Hagen cello
Keith Sewell guitar mandolin.
Russ Kunkell. Drums. From Comox ?
Luke Bulla. Fiddle.
Francine Reed vocals plus a 4 piece horn section.
Also fabulous was “Leftover Salmon” virtuoso roots rock musicians.
Buddy Guy at age 78 doesn’t show signs of slowing down. Really good working an audience. His show was like a history lesson of the blues as he played in the styles of John Lee Hooker, B.B. King, Guitar slim
Jr. Reed even Jimi Hendrix.
Also notable were Steeleye Span, Jason Wilson with Peewee Ellis, Petunia & the Vipers, Hot Rize & John Jorgensen.
