Remember all the snow that made getting around difficult? The Clover Point Drifters do. The band was to perform at the Pender Harbour School of Music in October but they couldn’t get here. Fulfilling their promise to reschedule, the band is returning to the Music School on May 27.
Traditional bluegrass weaves together musical traditions from Celtic folk songs to American blues, folk and country. The Clover Point Drifters, from Victoria, perform a repertoire consisting of traditional bluegrass songs with a sprinkling of country, folk, blues and pop melodies in the bluegrass style.
After almost 20 years together, the Clover Point Drifters have established themselves as masters of this musical genre. Their songs feature heartfelt duet and trio harmonies backed by strong banjo, dobro and mandolin accompaniments; this is “music of the heart”. Come on out to what is sure to be a great performance.
The concert is Saturday May 27 at 7pm. If you bought tickets to the cancelled October performance, you may use them for the show on May 27. If you do not have tickets, you can purchase them online at www.penderharbourmusic.ca or in Madeira Park at Harbour Insurance or in Sechelt at the Visitor Information Centre. www.cloverpointdrifters.com
