Port-Moody raised indi-roots musician in Harrison

Greg Drummond comes to the Harrison Memorial Hall this weekend

Finishing up this year’s Season of Performing Arts this weekend, the Harrison Festival Society presents rising B.C. singer, songwriter and roots rocker Greg Drummond with his five piece band.

Greg Drummond brings his musical style to Harrison’s Memorial Hall on Saturday, showing the influence of traditional Appalachian folk music with a modern southern rock transformation.

Known for his deep, distinguishable voice and a style of songwriting that combines fun, infectious melodies with stories of a slightly darker tone, Greg Drummond writes songs that tell stories of struggle, adventure, and the crazy experiences of life.

He tackles a wide variety of subjects including sleepless nights, drinking alone, finding redemption in love, soul searching, and pushing forward in the face of ongoing challenges.

Greg Drummond is a young musician who is steadily constructing a career on the road through steady touring, dedication, and commitment to his audiences.

Drummond’s music is a bit of a departure for the Festival Society, which presents a lot of world and traditionally-based music.

His performance at the Memorial Hall represents a means of reaching out to draw on younger audiences and also on the crowd who first experienced him in Harrison, many of whom may not be regular festival goers.

“This will be Greg’s second performance here in the past year, following on his show for the country music Bands on the Beach event organized last labour day by Tourism Harrison,” says the Festival Society’s artistic director Andy Hillhouse. “During his performance, I could hear these great sounds from outside the hall where we had a craft fair going on, and when I went outside to listen closer I had several audience members tell me ‘you have to book this guy.’”

On his 2015 album Drive, Drummond has accompanied his storytelling through the tones of old hollow body guitars, gorgeous group harmonies, rolling train beat percussion and a section of horn players that elevates the entire album.

Greg’s songs are guaranteed to inspire self-reflection and contemplation of some of life’s wonder, mystery, and despair. He is also known for a commanding stage presence that draws audiences in to listen closely to what he has to say, or brings them to their feet in celebration.

Come hear this talented young songwriter who is garnering a significant buzz throughout BC

and across the country, with his strong band of players.

The show begins at 8 p.m., April 30 in the Harrison Memorial Hall. Tickets are $22 and can be purchased online at harrisonfestival.com, over the phone at 604.796.3664, Agassiz Shoppers Drugmart, or at the door.
