CBC Outdoor Plaza – Vancouver
The CBC Outdoor Plaza was a mini blues fest this lunchtime with performances from three of the great bluesmen who are going to be playing at this weekend’s Vancouver Folk Music Festival.
The last of the Bentonia bluesmen, Jimmy “Duck” Holmes, owner of the oldest juke joint in Mississippi, the Blue Front Café, was joined on stage by fellow Mississippi resident Robert Connely Farr and Minnesota’s Mike Munson.
Over the course of an hour the trio gave a small sample of what fans of the festival can expect to see over the weekend.
If you want to catch them on the weekend the current times are as follows:
Jimmy “Duck” Holmes – Friday 4pm Stage 4; Saturday 11:10am Stage 5; Sunday 10:15am Stage 4.
Robert Connely Farr – Sunday 10:15am Stage 4.
Mike Munson – Sunday 12:30pm Stage 1.
