Being raised on the Island, Sam Weber said growing up he heard so much about Errington War Memorial Hall.

“It’s kind of a legendary spot,” said Weber, who will be playing at the venue on March 11.

Weber is touring his latest album Valentina Nevada, which was released in May 2016, with his bandmates Marshall Wildman, Hugh Mackie and Esme John. Weber said they began touring not long after the release with a couple of Canadian tours.

The songs from Valentina Nevada, according to a press release, form a travelogue of the journey Weber and his band have been on for the past two years, both literally and metaphysically. The album’s guiding spirit is its muse, Valentina.

Since his last album in 2014, Weber said, his songwriting has matured.

“The more I’ve done it (songwriting), the more I realize what not to do,” said Weber, adding that he’s not making as many novice songwriting choices. “The stuff I’m writing now is more personal. I’m able to articulate, maybe always what I wanted to say, but didn’t have the skill set or songwriting ability.”

Weber said they have kind of cut their teeth touring small communities, adding that they tend to get lost in the wash in bigger cities since they’re not a big pop band.

“It’s always a treat. They tend to embrace what we’re doing,” he said.

Weber will be playing at the Errington War Memorial Hall on March 11 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 at Cranky Dog Music in Parksville, Heaven on Earth in Qualicum Beach and the Errington General Store. Tickets are $5 at the door for children under the age of 12 and children aged six and under get in for free.

Opening for Weber is North Vancouver alternative indie duo Little Crow. In 2017 these up and coming artists will be appearing across Canada, including shows at the Vancouver Island Music Festival in July. For more information, visit www.littlecrowband.com.
