In addition to the wine tasting, music listening, kids zone and grape stomping, local artisans also display their crafts in the Art Gallery.

Live Music by Gary Comeau and the Voodoo Allstars

Hot and Spicy Louisiana inspired Roots & Blues

Take the rhythm of the Maritime Acadian music, season well with Louisiana zydeco blues, add a twist of Highway 61 era Dylan, serve it up with great showmanship, and you’ve got a potent musical cocktail that will have your head spinning and your feet dancing!

- Island Folks Festival

 

Gary Comeau is a singer-songwriter and musician of unique diversity and talent. Playing a range of instruments including guitar, mandolin, fiddle and piano, he delivers originally crafted, high energy, New Orleans-style rockin' roots and blues.

 

Gary Comeau & The Voodoo Allstars were asked to participate in The BC Fire Relief Benefit; a joint production of CBC television and radio. They were featured on Holger Peterson's Saturday Night Blues; a CBC nation-wide blues show out of Edmonton, Alberta and are regulars on the West Coast Festival circuit where their live performances are, more often than not, the showcase highlight.
