Rik Leaf at 40 Knots Wine Wednesday

Rik Leaf will be the feature performer Aug. 19 for 40 Knots Wine Wednesday summer concert series held at 2400 Anderton Road.

As a performance storyteller Rik combines original songs, slam poetry, instrumental soundscapes and reads hilarious escapades from his book, Four Homeless Millionaires.

Rik is also an advanced WSET Level III wine educator, member of the B.C. Guild of Wine Judges and host of The Entertaining World of Wine.

“Yeah…40 Knots Wine Wednesday is pretty much everything I love all rolled into one event,” Leaf laughs.

In addition to a roast pork meal, audiences can anticipate a night full of positive poetic vibes along the lines of Bruce Cockburn, Michael Franti and Xavier Rudd.

40 Knots Winery has been producing the Wine Wednesday cultural series throughout the summer, featuring a wide variety of talented performers. Tickets for the Aug. 19 event are $26 for members, $29 for others. Price includes a full evening of food, drink and entertainment and runs from 5-9 p.m.

“I’m excited to come back to Comox, I had a great time playing the Filberg Festival when I was touring with the Wyrd Sisters, and a couple years after that, my wife and I sold our house in Winnipeg so we could travel the world with our kids for a year. We had an epic adventure at Stokum Falls that ended up in my book, Four Homeless Millionaires – How One Family Found Riches By Leaving Everything Behind.
