Free Concert at the Bastion Square Public Market! Sunday June 4th

Thanks to everyone who we saw out in the past few days at the Sidney Street Market and the Moss Street Market! Today was our first ever performance at the Moss Street Market. We had a great time and are looking forward to playing there again!

Tomorrow we will be giving a performance in Victoria’s Bastion Square at the Sunday Public Market from 2PM-4PM. This is one of the few Markets that we perform at where our guests can sit on the patio in the sun and enjoy a cold drink!

Monday we will be back at the Irish Times Pub from 9PM-12:30AM.

Cheers!

Knacker’s Yard on the May long weekend!

ucluelet may 21st 2016 pngKnacker’s Yard will be heading up the coast for a show in Ucluelet on May 21st! This will mark the two year point since our last show in Ukee.  We’re excited to play again. The performance will happen at the A.N.A.F., which was slated for dismissal last we were up. But, as you can see, its still rolling as one of the town’s main performance venues!

After Ucluelet we head to Salmon Beach, Toquart Bay, May 22nd, for a private event.

Our third performance for the long weekend will be back in Victoria for the the last day of the Highland Games and Celtic Fest on May 23nd. Visit their site for details: http://victoriahighlandgames.com/games/
