The Cowichan Folk Guild’s Family Dance & Fundraiser, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 24 at the Cowichan Station Hub features Uncle Wiggly’s Hot Shoes Blues Band.

Formed in 1978 in Victoria, Uncle Wiggly’s Hot Shoes Blues Band play original blues and have recorded three albums.

The band still features most of the original members: Hank Lionhart, Norm Piercy, Mark Comerford, Dave Rowse and Brent Hutchinson, along with new member Tyler Piercy.

Hutch was artistic director of the Cowichan Folk Guild and Islands Folk Festival for many years and many music lovers will remember him well.

Uncle Wiggly’s still thrives on playing live, and keeping the dance floor packed and hopping so be ready to enjoy an evening with family and friends, good music, and yummy pie.

Pie? You bet. There will be an apple pie contest so bake a pie, bring it to the dance, and you might win a prize: a cookbook named Mastering the Art of Pie.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m.

Admission is $25 each or $20 for CFG members and youths. Kids 12 and under get in free.

Tickets are available at Volume One Books in Duncan or phone 778-455-4710 to reserve.
