Triple bill of entertainment at Fresh Fest

The River and The Road, Indie rockers Zerbin and local blues man Luke Blu Guthrie play at Comox Marina

On June 12, The River and The Road will be playing at “Fresh Fest – Seafood Feast and Concert In the Park”,  the kickoff to the 2015 BC Shellfish & Seafood Festival.

Indie rockers Zerbin and local blues man Luke Blu Guthrie fill out the triple bill.

For The River and The Road, the concert is in promotion and celebration of the release of their new record Headlights (produced by Jamey Koch of Tragically Hip).

The folk-rock band from Vancouver is built on risking new beginnings and telling their stories along the way.  In their short history as a band, The River and The Road has grown from an entertaining duo to an internationally touring quartet  relentlessly touring widely across Canada, completing many cost-to-coast tours among several other regional tours. The band’s members may hail from multiple countries, upbringings and musical backgrounds, but their individualities come together to create unified sound that is unquestionably Americana – a convergence of folk, country, and rock.

Headlights is a bold step away from the acoustic song writing that originally drove them – a transformation that can be likened to the evolution of their live performances. It is clear that they are a band that challenges definition and is willing to take chances.

2015 will see the band’s highlights set firmly on the road. The remainder of their cross-Canada tour in support of Headlights will be accompanied by a slew of supporting Canadian icons, while spreading their incredibly perfect folk-rock to the residents of Comox and the guests of the festival.

The ninth annual BC Shellfish & Seafood festival is the largest of its kind in British Columbia. Located right here in the Comox Valley, guests can enjoy 10 days filled with culinary events, shellfish and seafood producer tours, celebrity chef demonstrations, winery dinners, networking events and a trade show. Nothing is more perfect than pairing a seafood festival with amazing live music.

Tickets for Fresh Fest are $25 in advance (online) and $35 at the gate. The ticket price includes a three-course meal.

Children eight and under get in free, and net proceeds will be donated to the North Island College culinary program. For advance tickets, go to bit.ly/1SEOMMy
