Victoria folkies at the Cumberland

Friday, 8 p.m. Cumberland Hotel

West My Friend is back to entertain music lovers in the Comox Valley.

They were a popular draw at last year’s MusicFest, so a sell-out is expected this Friday, when they play the Cumberland Hotel.

Originally formed in Victoria in 2009, West My Friend has been described as “everything from indie-roots to chamber-folk”.

Their first full-length album, Place, earned “Roots Album of the Year” and “Song of the Year” nominations at the Vancouver Island Music Awards.

The accolades went national for their second album, When the Ink Dries, with a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination.

Tickets are available $20 plus tax at the Cumberland Hotel, or online at tickets.islandmusicfest.com

Show starts at 8 p.m. and is a presentation of the MusicFest Concert Series.
