WEST MY FRIEND

We feel very privileged that West My Friend was able to join us this year since they had to cut short a European tour to make it happen.  Described as everything from indie-roots to chamber-folk, West My Friend has an acoustic blend of instruments and four-part harmonies that challenges the conventions of popular music. The band features pure and thrillingly elastic vocals with catchy arrangements of bass, guitar, mandolin and accordion that draw from jazz, classical, folk and pop influences.  Inspired by artists such as Joanna Newsome, Bright Eyes, the Decemberists and the Punch Brothers, and forged from a sonically adventurous acoustic music scene of Canada‚Äôs west coast, West My Friend is proving to be a key part of a new generation of grassroots folk music.  With the release of their third and latest album, Quiet Hum, West My Friend builds admirably on the body of great music coming out of Victoria and across British Columbia.  FRIDAY, SATURDAY, AFTER HOURS FRIDAY
