This 4-piece band includes Tony Turner on guitar, Mike Sadava on mandolin & lap steel, Arlene Carson on accordion & piano and Tony Di Gregorio on upright bass. Featuring impeccable three-part harmonies, this Vancouver Island quartet make something new out of tunes you forgot were classics. Sundays at the Victoria Folk Music Society start with a jam session at 6:30 pm followed by an open mic at 7:30 pm, an intermission at 8:45 and then the band as the featured act starting at 9 pm.
