Ally Corbett and Richard Garvey are playing Vancouver Island this weekend
Canadian folk musician and occasional Roots Music Canada contributor Ally Corbett is joining forces with Richard Garvey for a heart-warming combination of indie folk, fiddle, and banjo tunes that is sure to leave your toes tapping and your heart smiling!
British Columbians, you can catch them in Duncan tonight, Port Alberni at Char’s Landing tomorrow, and the Ucluelet ANAF on Sunday.
Richard Garvey is a guitar-strumming, banjo-plucking, and sing-along-starting performer and community organiser who resides in Victoria, BC. His award-winning songs explore the highs and lows of love, injustice, and the marbled mess of the human condition. Whether he’s playing to a living room or an amphitheatre, Richard brings clever songs and a sly sense of humour to inspire solidarity, hope, and change . When you’re looking for the latest incarnation of world-changing, foot-stomping, and heart-filling folk music, look no further!
Hailing from St. John’s, NL, fiddler Ally Corbett is a fun-loving musician who has toured with a number of Canadian groups (Al Tuck, The Burning Hell, Old Man Luedecke, Kim Barlow, Sherry Ryan) and has added her signature fiddling style to countless recordings. She currently resides in Kitchener, ON where she regularly performs with Newfoundland band Poverty’s Arse, Stratford folk group String Bone, Kitchener singer-songwriter Lynn Jackson, and as the fiddle/pedal steel duo Corbett and Caplin. A seasoned performer, Ally is adding to her role as a ”fiddler in the band” and is releasing an EP of her own songs. The album What’s in It for You? is a collection of songs that features some of the finest musicians in Canada and the US. It is currently available to hear on Bandcamp and will be released on all streaming platforms on June 3.
