People are already tapping their toes and clapping their hands as a warm up

People are already tapping their toes and clapping their hands as a warm up to the 31st Islands Folk Festival July 24 to 26.

Produced by the Cowichan Folk Guild, the event is billed as a “family friendly festival” that features “all the elements of a home grown folk festival with three days of extraordinary music, family camping, food vendors, craft vendors, plus an amazing location at beautiful Providence Farm.”

Add the organizers: “Music will be performed on three outdoor stages as well as in the Chapel with its amazing acoustics.”

There will be four workshops over the weekend too: Words & Music; Cape Breton Fiddle; Accordion; and Fallen, a workshop about the power of music as medicine for the body and soul.

Information about the performers and workshops, as well as the stage schedules, is posted at islandsfolkfestival.ca. Weekend passes and day passes are already on sale.
