Scott Cook - Saturday, May 7 @ 7:30 pm. SOLD OUT! Alberta's Scott Cook has been living out of a van or a backpack for a dozen years now, touring almost incessantly across Canada, the US, Europe, Asia, Australia and elsewhere, and distilling his experiences into straight-talking, keenly observant verse. His fourth independent release, One More Time Around, was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award, and its opening track "Pass It Along" won the Folk and Acoustic category in the 2013 UK Songwriting Contest, with UK magazine Maverick Country naming him "one of Canada's most inspiring and imaginative storytellers".

Clanna Morna – Friday, May 13 @ 7:30 pm. Hailing from the occupied territories of the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ nations (Victoria, BC in Canada), Clanna Morna brings their take on the Celtic Traditional genre to the west coast. Their sound is rooted in the traditional Irish, Scottish and English music that many love, and features carefully crafted arrangements, rhythmic spirited energy and captivating storytelling. Tickets $25 by advance reservation. Information

Fresh Cup Cafe Welcomes You!

Jim Townley, owner/operator of Saanichton’s Fresh Cup Roastery Cafe invites you to stop by and appreciate the coffee house culture in his recently renovated cafe. Jim believes that having a coffee with friends is not just about drinking a coffee and enjoying a treat, It’s also about communication. As we emerge from the pandemic, he recognizes it will take time for some people to adjust to freely sharing space with others.
His business has expanded into space occupied by a neighbouring business which has created more spacious seating space for customers. Jim also plans to re-introduce live music and other events. Supporting local business is critical to maintaining the sustainability of our local villages so come on down and enjoy a cuppa java at Fresh Cup! And remember... “life’s too short to drink stale coffee!”
