Five concerts on 2012 Harrison festival roster

There is an exciting roster of performers coming to Harrison over the next few months, courtesy of the Harrison Festival Society.

The Breakmen play January 28 at Harrison Memorial Hall.

Last year the group earned two nominations at the Canadian Folk Music Awards and won the Vox Pop Award for "Americana Album of the Year" at the Independent Music Awards.

Locarno and Babe Gurr play a double bill February 11. Vancouver Latin outfit Locarno is lead by Tom Landa (The Paperboys). Tom has created music influenced by Mexico and Vancouver, using some of the best musicians in the city. Also part of this Double Bill is award winning singer/songwriter Babe Gurr, who has recently added elements of World Music to her sound. Celebrate Valentine's Day with Babe's beautiful voice and Tom's hot romantic music from South of the Border.

March 3 will see Gary Comeau and the Voodoo Allstars' East Coast Acadian and Cajun music. March 17 will be a St. Patrick's Day celebration with Tim Readman and Out of the Green.

And finally, the Jesse Peters Trio returns to Harrison Hot Springs on April 14.

This may be the last full series of off-season Festival shows, now that much of the funding is in jeopardy. There will be a Festival of the Arts this summer, but there is no certainty the Festival Society will continue to operate as usual.
