Victoria headliners Jack Stephenson and May Brown then take to the stage at this month’s Music in the Lake

Music in the Lake continues without radio station support

The first Music in the Lake without CICV 98.7-FM's support was an entertaining one.

The first Music in the Lake without CICV 98.7-FM’s support was an entertaining one.

On Thursday, September 22, local musician and event organizer David Lowther and Victoria folk singers Jack Stephenson and May Brown performed for a small crowd at the Lower Centennial Hall.

CICV had pulled its support last month, with the Cowichan Folk Guild filling its place.

“The only difference is that you have to actually be here to hear the music, because CICV Is not recording it,” Lowther said.

With no takers to the open stage component of this month’s Music in the Lake event, Lowther played a couple of cover songs and a humorous original.

Victoria headliners Jack Stephenson and May Brown then took to the stage.

Of the more memorable included a love song set within a police detachment.

“I lima oscar victor echo you,” Brown sang, using the police officer phonetic alphabet.

Next month’s Music in the Lake, Thursday, October 27, will feature Victoria-based group The Klez Galz, who play the celebratory Jewish music of Eastern Europe.

November will feature local musician Beverly McKeen, who had been scheduled to play last month’s event, until it was cancelled at last minute.

As always, Music in the Lake takes place the fourth Thursday night of the month, beginning at 7:30 p.m. with an open stage component, wherein anyone interested in performing is encouraged to do so.

An hour or so of open stage is followed by the headlining act.

A $5 admission goes toward paying the band, while snacks and tea/coffee sales go to pay for the venue.
