Cowichan Folk Guild offers beer, burgers and bluesman
Burgers, beer and Tim Williams.
That is the recipe for adding much-needed electrical upgrades to the Island Folk Festival this summer.
The Cowichan Folk Guild is hosting Calgary bluesman Tim Williams for an intimate 7:30 p.m. Friday concert at the Providence Farm Chapel May 2.
And the guild is following that up with a beer and burger fundraiser May 4 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Cow Bay Pub.
Williams is no stranger to Cowichan. His guitar skills are frequently compared to Ry Cooder and David Lindley (and like them, Tim plays a wealth of other string instruments), and his songwriting has won praise from the likes of Tom Russel and Willie Nelson.
Tickets for the Williams show are $20, $15 for CFG members in advance, or cash only at the door.
Tickets for the beer and burger are $20 and will buy your the sounds of veteran local band Monty and the Pythons and a chance to bid on a wealth of silent auction items.
