Female artists headline the billing for Music in the Lake

Music in the Lake coordinator David Lowther is excited to be bringing back two female acts that have had rave reviews

For his winter program, Music in the Lake coordinator David Lowther is excited to be bringing back two female acts that have had rave reviews from Lake Cowichan audiences in the past.

On Jan. 25, Lake Cowichan’s lower Centennial Community Hall will be rocking with the earthy, gritty, bluesy sound of Vancouver artist Kate Reid.

“I first saw Kate perform three years ago when we were both playing the Islands Folk Festival,” Lowther told the Gazette. “She blew me away with the quality of her songwriting, performance and especially the relevance of her work.”

Biographical notes on her website define Reid as “a woman who breaks the stereotypes and makes us all think as well as laugh.”

In February, Music in the Lake hosts The Sweet Lowdown, an acoustic roots trio from Victoria.

Drawn together by mutual passion for old-time groove, hard driving bluegrass, sweet harmonies and well-wrought songs, The Sweet Lowdown (Amanda Blied — guitar, Shanti Bremer — banjo and Miriam Sonstenes — fiddle) blend original song-writing with old time roots music to create a sound that is unique and timeless.

The Sweet Lowdown were awarded Victoria’s 2011 M Award as the city’s favourite roots/world music group.

Performance times are at 7 p.m.  and ticket prices are unbeatable at $5 per person.

March-May acts are still to be confirmed.
