The Bills play Filberg park Thursday

Musical masters The Bills play Filberg Park

Thursday, Aug. 13, 7 p.m.

The 2015 Filberg Concert Series continues on Thursday August 13th with the globally inspired west coast roots music of The Bills!

From the beautiful West Coast of Canada comes this extraordinary quintet, renowned among fans of all ages for their instrumental virtuosity, lush vocal arrangements, exuberant live performances, evocative songwriting, and a refreshing sound that transcends musical boundaries and defies simple categorization.

 

Formed in 1996 (as The Bill Hilly Band), they have performed extensively throughout North America and Europe. Strings, bellows, keys, voices, skin and bows – these are the vehicles for the Bills’ unique sonic approach. With individual band members sporting world-class credentials in folk/roots, jazz, classical and world music, The Bills truly are a Canadian acoustic music supergroup.

 

The Bills feature the re-known Marc Atkinson on mandolin, guitar, vocals; Richard Moody on violin, viola, vocals; Chris Frye on guitar, lead vocals; Adrian Dolan on fiddle, piano, accordion, vocals and Scott White on upright bass, vocals. “Their sound is panoramic, mischievous, fiercely unpretentious – and musically splendid” – Boston Globe

 

Plan for a great night of music, have dinner with Tria at the Filberg Tea House with delicious local food and tasty local beer, wine and spirits (be sure to make a reservation). Bring a blanket and enjoy the show festival style or pull up a chair provided. Kids under 12 are free and dancing is highly encouraged!

 

The Filberg Summer Concert Series is a fundraiser for the the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park. The last concert was completely sold out so don’t miss out! To book tickets today go to www.filberg.com or stop by Long and McQuade in Courtenay or Blue Heron Books in Comox.
