Special Event! Even More Music Magic this Summer!
On Thursday July 7th experience a once in a lifetime concert experience right here in the Comox Valley with Grammy Award Winner Alison Krauss with
Unions Station. Krauss’ incontestable talent is how effortlessly she bridges the gap between roots music and country, rock and pop. A highly sought-after collaborator, Krauss has worked with some of the biggest names in popular music, including James Taylor, Phish, Dolly Parton, Yo Yo Ma & Bonnie Raitt. Since signing with Rounder Records at the age of 14 in 1985 Krauss has sold in excess of 12 million albums and garnered 26 Grammy® Awards, the most for any female and the third most of any recording artist in Grammy® history. Her breathtaking live performance should not be missed. Tickets for this special concert event are ONLY $50 with a weekend pass to Vancouver Island MusicFest. Concert only passes are $65.
