Last Sunday, East Vancouver band the Staggers and Jaggs made the bleary-eyed morning trip from the Hootstock festival grounds in Forest Grove to soothe our souls at episode three of the Sunday Biscuits brunch music series.
The crew did not disappoint.
I must admit I was equally bleary-eyed from joining them at the festival the night before, and their brand of hearty, low down, ragtime-infused blues and pseudo-gospel was exactly what I needed.
My favourite moments were when they pulled back from the mics and filled the room with those lovely natural harmonies. I hope we can get them back to town again.
This Sunday, July 31, we’re excited to have Victoria singer-songwriter duo Zonnis with the Cariboo’s own Nathan Lamb-Yorski performing at the Bean Counter.
Zonnis has strung together a thorough tour schedule this summer, and we’ll be catching them right around the middle of their journeys.
Nathan Lamb-Yorski’s country-folk music will take you from the rainforests of B.C.’s north coast to the hoodoos of the Chilcotin.
He helped kick off this season’s Performances in the Park series, and we’re glad to have him in the lineup.
Many thanks to the growing crew of Sunday Biscuiteers who have joined us for the series.
I’ve noticed at least a few faces that have made it to them all so far.
We’re already half way through the season, so if you’ve been meaning to come down for a nice chill brunchtime experience, you’re quickly running out of chances!
Sunday Biscuits runs every Sunday until the end of August at the Bean Counter.
Music is between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. with the headliner playing around 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The supporting act plays around 11:30 a.m.
Music is a suggested donation of $5, and nobody will be turned away due to lack of funds. To see the whole summer concert schedule, visit the Bean Counter on facebook.
