Midsummer Music Festival

"Each summer, people from all walks of life gather in Smithers BC, to share a universal love of music at the Midsummer Music Festival. Created in 1984, a handful of music lovers envisioned the Midsummer Festival creating a family-positive musical event, now proudly the longest running music festival in Northern BC.  We are proud to be welcomed to the Wet'suwet'en's First Nations lands in the heart of the breathtaking Bulkley Valley." www.smithersmusicfest.com

The Cole Patenaude Band will be hitting the main stage on Saturday, June 30th. We would love to see you there!

Rogue Folk Club | Pharis & Jason [night one]

The Cole Patenaude Band is beyond giddy to be opening for Pharis & Jason's CD release weekend, with two nights of soulful music and good times to be had all around. 

Grab your tickets at www.roguefolk.bc.caTapestry Music Vancouver, and Highlife Records before they sell out! 

"Pharis and Jason Romero live in the tiny town of Horsefly, BC, where they raise two small kids, make handmade banjos as the J. Romero Banjo Co, and write, play and teach old and new roots music. They’ve won a Juno Award, Canadian Folk Music Awards, and a Western Canadian Music Award for their three releases as a duo so far, and have toured near and wide with their heartbreakingly harmonic live show in an ever-evolving and never-ending quest for good songs and beautiful sounds.

This Rogue Folk show is to celebrate a CD release tour for Pharis & Jason’s newest album (and the first of all original songs), Sweet Old Religion. The record is adventurous in the couple’s love of early folk music, with light, love and time as the leading themes. It’s a record that sounds like over a decade of playing and listening together. The songs, written over the past three years, explore the work-love-life-relationship balance while being work-at-home parents and bringing two young children on the road, losing loved ones, optimism for the future, and deep gratitude for a loving community following a disastrous fire. Part duets and part featuring guests, it’s Pharis & Jason at their very finest, their most open, and their most givin’ ‘er. And special for this show - they’ve got a band! Marc Jenkins on pedal steel and Patrick Metzger on bass will join them for this much-anticipated evening."

"Arts on the Fly is extremely excited to present, for the first time, Dark Times: a three-day, three-venue music festival taking over downtown Williams Lake BC, March 2 to 4, 2018. To soothe your aching seasonal affects, or general lack of hope for the human species, Dark Times is a thick blanket of warm harmonies and hip-swaying beats. It is a chance for us to come together, in all our glorious broken forms, tug each others' heart strings, and relish in the possibility that the end is nigh."
