White Whale host Black Swan Fiddlers on St. paddy’s Day

8 p.m. showtime


Here we go again!  It’s St. Patrick’s Day on Thursday March 17.  What better way to celebrate it than at the White Whale Public House in Courtenay with the Black Swan Fiddlers.   Music starts at 8 p.m.  If you like Celtic music and you want the pure drop, what better way to celebrate things Irish than with traditional foot tapping Irish ballads, polkas, hornpipes, jigs and reels.  Enjoy the special ambiance of the White Whale Public House, its great food and beverages and our lively music for a great night out.

The Black Swan Fiddlers consist of  fiddlers, Madeleine Guimond, Raven Lees, Mya Williamson, and they are joined by Paul Gervais on guitar, Jeff Butterworth on bass, mandolin and vocals.. David Stevenson keeps it all together on fiddle, flute and penny whistle, though not all at once.

The Black Swan Fiddlers have been keeping the traditional Celtic music tradition alive and well in the Comox Valley for 8 years.  The Black Swan Fiddlers are based at the Long and McQuade Music store. To watch when we play, see our website or contact David Stevenson 250 890-0297.
