Cumberland Brothers at Filberg Thursday

The final concert in the 2015 Filberg Summer Concert Series

The final concert in the 2015 Filberg Summer Concert Series is coming up Thursday, Aug. 27 at 7 p.m. with the Cumberland Brothers.

The Cumberland Brothers is a critically acclaimed creative collaboration of Cumberland-based Archie Pateman (co-founder of Vancouver roots band, The Breakmen) and side-man fiddle sensation, Jack Roland.

They specialize in brother harmony style country music and present it with the simple but proficient support of guitar, banjo and fiddle.

Their sets include a mix of old country songs by artists like The Louvin and Delmore Brothers, and original music penned by Pateman.

Since releasing their debut E.P. album, Gamey, in July of 2013, their unique sound has been heard on Galaxy Roots Radio, CBC, and countless college and independent radio stations.

The album reached No. 5 on the Canadian Earshot Charts in September, 2013 and two tracks were recently used in a promo video by a west coast mountain bike company.

The Cumberland Brothers will be joined by special guests – FiddleJam. FiddleJam began in the Comox Valley in 2001 as an opportunity to play together for fun, and as a place to learn and share Canadian fiddle tunes. They have since learned well over 200 tunes and play for community events across the Comox Valley and beyond.

Children under 12 get into the concert for free. Dancing and celebrating are highly encouraged. Plan for dinner at Tria at the Filberg Tea House, and enjoy delicious local food and beverages pre-show or at intermission. Enjoy the concert on a blanket in the grass, bring a picnic or pull up a chair.

 

The Filberg Summer Concert Series is a fundraiser for the Filberg Heritage Park and Lodge.

Proceeds support the ongoing care and maintenance of this heritage legacy for the community. Tickets are $15, available at www.filberg.com., at Long and McQuade in Courtenay or at Blue Heron Books in Comox.
