Folk Club plays tonight

Open mic and jug band music will fill the McMillan Arts Centre tonight

The MACoustic Folk Club is tonight, Friday, Oct. 19 and the headlining group is Dr. Phil Harmonic’s Jug Band Orchestra. This is a four piece band featuring upright bass, cigar box guitar, jugs, banjos, kazoos and various other acoustic instruments.

The group will be doing a mix of original songs and classics spanning nearly a century of evolution of the characteristically light-hearted, DIY, jug band style.  The first half is an open stage, and there are still two slots available e-mail kerri@livingmidnight.com or show up and hope for the best.

The show takes place at the McMillan Arts Centre (The MAC) in Parksville at 7:30 p.m. at 133 McMillan Street. Entrance is $5 and refreshments will be available.

The MACoustic Folk Club happens on the third Friday or every month at the MAC. For more information visit www.mcmillanartscentre.com.
