Greater Victoria Harbour Authority and Deanna Young Promotions presents The Breakwater Barge. Join us Friday August 11th from 5PM to 9:30PM for Black Angus, starting the night off at 5:30PM will be Jon Reid (johnny Galactic).
Black Angus is about good songs, good humour, good friends, and good whisky. Gareth Hurwood is the voice, the guitar, the poetry, and the passion. Alex MacCuaig is the driving force on bass and harmonies. Sarah Tradewell on fiddle brings traditional fire and grace, while Tom Salter on drums ties up the package with his focused drive, and irresistible beat. As Black Angus, their powerful performances take listeners from Vancouver Island to Ireland and back again – fueled by their collaboration and sheer enjoyment of the music.
The band is near-impossible to pigeon-hole: Traditional & contemporary Irish, acoustic roots, Americana, West Coast Celtic, blues, and old-time are all part of the Black Angus sound.
Local beer from Phillips Brewing & Malting Co., Driftwood Brewery, & Hoyne Brewing Company. Cider from Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse and wine from the Artisan Wine Shop AWS. Food will also be on site from The Kraken by The Breakwater as well as Deadbeetz Food Truck and Songhees Seafood & Steam food trucks.
The Breakwater Barge opens at 5PM. $2 cash admission with partial proceeds to James Bay Community Project.
Kids welcome. No pets or smoking on the barge.
