It was sweltering in the sun but luckily, the Cowichan Harmonica Band, in their smart black and white uniforms, got to sit in the shade on the Buckerfield’s Stage as they performed their concert July 21.

It was Elders Day at The 39 Days of July and the crowd was delighted with the variety of old favourites performed by the group which included everything from ‘Oh, them golden slippers’ to ‘The Ballad of the Green Beret’.

The special day is always a popular event, drawing a good crowd to Charles Hoey Park.
