Vendors: September 15
Getting here: Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds
Entertainment: Maple Creek
Melodic finger-picking, a steady, funky bass and soul-lifting harmonies are the band’s trademarks. Playing a unique blend of mostly folky Americana and bluesy country-rock, the trio covers classics and lesser-known tunes from the past five decades. Far from your standard arrangements, Maple Creek takes each song and makes it their own.
Playing together on-and-off for the past six years, Maple Creek is made up of two string slingers and an international woman of mystery. Together they have crafted a crowd-pleasing collection of songs that gets people singing and swaying along. You’re certain to be smitten with the playing styles of the lead guitarist and bassist, while falling for the lead vocalist’s silky, lilting voice.
Expect to take pleasure in a sweet mix of soulful hits, playful toe-tappers and even sensual ballads, sprinkled with smart – occasionally sassy – repartee.
