The Whisky Minstrels are coming back to beautiful downtown Nordland - Sunday June 19 at 3:00.
Yes, that's Father's Day, and if you're a dad you can treat yourself to some great music by two of the best musicians and nicest guys. And if you not a dad, you'll still enjoy an afternoon of great tunes and entertaining stories. We're trying something new with this one - a mid-afternoon show.

The Blue Crows are lifelong musicians who combine their folk, blues, jazz and classical backgrounds. John Morton plays clarinet, George Rezendes plays finger-style guitar, and the cellist is Fred Nussbaum. Since this event allows for dancing, the creative drummer Tom Svornich will be on hand to lend some extra propulsion to the festivities.
Feel free to bring light snacks and beverages to share.
Doors open at 6:30, Music starts at 7pm.

From James Lindquist:
Front Country isn’t your usual bluegrass band. The group blends everything from high-lonesome mountain music to new-wave power pop, newgrass picking, oldgrass harmonies, and just plain glorious musicality. This is Americana at its best: music with deep roots and wide-ranging vision.
There's WAY too much going on to cover it here - follow the links to the Juan de Fuca Festival website lineup and schedule. An early-bird pass for all four days is only $55, and daily passes run from $20 to $30 (12 and under free) - click here for the festival's pass sales page.
