Bill Borne performing in Valley

Bill’s music reflect a life on the road that brings elements of world beat

The Society for Artistic Development will bring top Canadian talent to the Comox Valley when electric blues and roots singer Bill Bourne will appear on the stage at The Venue Formerly Known as Joe’s Garage on April 19.

The powerful rhythms and soulful sounds of Bill’s music reflect a life on the road that brings elements of world beat, Cajun, Celtic, folk, Latin and more to his unique sound. His work has drawn international acclaim as well as multiple Juno awards.

Bill was raised in a musical family in rural Alberta and was travelling the music circuits at an early age. His music has been a family affair ever since with three generations sharing the stage at various times.

Bill’s musical abilities include the guitar, fiddle and harmonica supported by a rich blues voice.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and music will commence at 8.

There’s no more dinner served but with a donation towards cleanup/garbage removal, you’re welcome to order in. This will be a licensed event.

Tickets are available only in advance at Bop City Records in Courtenay.

For more information, visit or call 250-702-6456.
