    Richmond, BC, CA | 7:30pm

    With Token Rhyme. The Steveston Folk Guild runs shows the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:30pm. The first 30 minutes or so is dedicated to an open stage format. After that the feature performer takes over for their show. The venue is quite small and intimate, and the acoustics are great. There is a small PA for the vocals and bass, but essentially all music is performed unplugged. We’re very excited to be welcomed back to play a feature night, and look forward to once again playing to a great listening audience. Info/directions on their website.

    Delta, BC, CA | 1:00pm

    "A Taste of History"...a gourmet wandering harvest festival is FarmFolk/CityFolk's annual fundraising event. With a wine glass and linen napkin in hand, you can taste the very best of BC from chefs, vintners, brewers, farmers, and food artisans from across the province. Connections are made between producers and chefs, food producers and consumers, and farm folks and city folks. These connections provide an increased awareness of and appreciation for local food and agriculture. Feast of Fields is a gastronomic journey towards a sustainable, local food system (with aural ambience provided by Token Rhyme!)604-730-0450
