Hailing from Prince George, Black Spruce Bog is straight up canadiana dance roots punkabilly… or something.

The music of Black Spruce Bog straddles the tree line that separates the last of the boreal forest from the arctic tundra; it rides the rails west to Rupert with the Lorne Creek Mountain man; and it shares a brew, a laugh, and a deep sigh with a pulp mill broke hustler. There are many people who choose not to live in this limbo-like space between wilderness, traditional territories, and industry. But those who do have the most kick ass stories to tell.

With roots set deep in the northern soil, Black Spruce Bog brings a sound and tells the stories of people and the land they live on. The mossy floor of a spruce bog is not an easy place to thrive; but with the right mix of rhythm, rhyme, and ruckus, any sapling can find the light.


Starting the evening is a special treat from Cumberland’s own Josie Aileen –

Not yet old enough to actually go to the Waverley if she’s not performing, but is destined to be a regular on its stage… and many others. Her unique, fierce and quirky musical meanderings and vocal shenanigans leave no-one wondering who she is. Joined by her dad, Tim Patterson, on banjo & guitar, and a couple more surprise guests, be sure an arrive on time so you can say you saw her when…
