In addition to our two sets at the 154th Victoria Highland Games, Knacker’s Yard have organized two evening events during the long weekend, in order to help out touring bands performing at the Games as well as provide evening entertainment for lovers of Celtic music and dance!
These events are meant to enhance the Highland Games experience by offering two evenings of traditional music, story telling, and dance. The concerts feature Knacker’s Yard, and the Victoria Irish Dancers, with special musical guests Old Black Rum on May 19th, and Vancouver’s Blackthorn on May 21st. Knacker’s Yard are proud to have Stephen Johnson (Nanaimo, BC) accompany them at these concerts on accordion, Irish flute and tin whistle.
Both evening concerts will be held downtown at the The Victoria Event Center located at 1415 Broad St., Victoria, BC. The shows are all ages licensed events, bar service for 19+ with ID.
