Fiddlejam at Simms Park Sunday

Come enjoy fiddling, an integral part of our Canadian culture, with Fiddlejam playing this Sunday July 19 at 7 p.m. at Simms Park. This performance is part of a free summer concert series hosted by the City of Courtenay.

Fiddlejam is an eclectic group of 20 to 30 or so musicians which started in Comox a decade ago led by international fiddler Trent Freeman.

Though primarily a fiddle group, accordions, banjos, guitars, mandolins and piano also fill out the sound with the occasional saxophone thrown in for good measure.  Fiddlejam includes adults and youth and the band plays a variety of tunes ranging from traditional old time and Celtic, to swing and bluegrass.

Other featured Simms Park performances include Jilli Martini Band on July 26, Country Picken on Aug. 9, Duo of Duos Aug. 16, The Blues Legends Aug. 23, Jazz in the Park on Aug. 30, and The Fabulous Mutts on Sept. 6.

For concert information please call the Courtenay Recreation Lewis Centre at 250-338-5371 or get updates at www.courtenay.ca/simms
