A long-time favorite of the Festival, we are thrilled to announce that Vancouver BC’s The Paperboys are back after a three year hiatus. After all, nobody else does it quite like the Paperboys. Celebrating their 20th anniversary, they are Mexican Son Jarocho mixed in with Irish Jigs and Reels and a good dose of Country and Bluegrass. You can also add healthy servings of Ska, Soca, African Highlife and even a little White Boy Reggae. It’s been a long road since their humble beginnings traveling the byways in a $500 van. They have recorded nine albums, countless tours of North America and Europe, TV and Movie appearances, Movie Scores, Industry Accolades, rave reviews by press & media, and several music awards including Canada’s version of The Grammy’s, The JUNO Award. “Once heard, you will cross mountains, valleys, floods and tempests to this band wherever they play. Be ready to travel – even if they play at the ends of the earth, it will be worth the journey!” (CD Baby)
