The Flying Accusations will get your toes tappin’ in Chemainus

Tonight (July 30), the Flying Accusations and Friends will perform during Music in the Park at Waterwheel Park.

Tonight (July 30), if you’re anywhere near the Waterwheel Park bandshell in Chemainus, you can expect to hear a lot of hand clapping and foot stomping.

That’s because The Flying Accusations and Friends will be performing their energetic rootsy songs as part of Music in the Park, starting at 7 p.m.

“Their tight harmonies, unique songs and comfortable mayhem on stage bring them to the top ‘o the roots, alt-country heap,” says their website. “Get ready for some foot tappin’, knee slappin’ and hands a-clappin’ tunes. These guys don’t hold much back!”

Based in Victoria, The Flying Accusations specializes in original folk, roots, country, bluegrass, newgrass and backwoods music with strong vocal harmony.

Robert McCourty, Brian Fraser, Philip Holmes and Lawrence Lucier play folk festivals, coffee houses, socials, receptions, house concerts, farmers’ markets, country fairs, sing-alongs and “just about anywhere good music is appreciated,” according to their website.

The music starts at 7 p.m., and admission is by donation. Gourmet hot dogs and refreshments are available at Waterwheel Park.

Upcoming Music in the Park performers include Luv Train (Aug. 6), Elf Song (Aug. 13), Cat’s Meow (Aug. 20) and the Glen Foster Group (Aug. 27). All shows start at 7 p.m. at the Waterwheel Park bandshell.
