Prime pickin’ despite wind at the Lighthouse Bluegrass Festival in Qualicum Bay
The Mid Island Bluegrass Society is ordering better weather for next year’s Lighthouse Bluegrass Festival, but overall the festival was a success according to organizers.
Linda Thorburn said general attendance was down a bit from last year but in other areas the festival exceeded expectations.
“The festival was a huge success and the sound was incredible,” said Thorburn.
Len Hill ran the sound board like a trooper, Thorburn said, and comments confirmed that.
The free workshops were well attended, particularly the Harmony Singing for beginners.
If anyone missed it there will be a repeat of that workshop at the Coombs Bluegrass Festival on Saturday, Aug 2.
The Coombs Bluegrass Festival takes place at the Rodeo Grounds from July 31 through Aug. 3, and it’s put on by the Coombs Hilliers Recreation and Community Organization.
Stay tuned for a feature article on that festival coming up in The NEWS.
