We are very excited to announce that the Merry McKentys will be playing at Salmonberry Days! Enjoy the rides, the Stong’s BBQ, and hopefully, the weather!
The Merry McKentys hail from Cortes Island, BC but are currently residents of the Dunbar neighbourhood. Their multi-part harmonies, foot-stomping fiddle tunes, and wholesome old-time family vibe have been enchanting audiences throughout the West Coast of Canada and the US. Their instrumentation is an ever-changing medley as fiddles, guitars, banjo, cello, accordion, and bass are swapped between musicians to accompany their diverse set of original songs, traditional Canadian & Irish fiddle tunes, and contemporary folk covers. They’ve performed and toured together extensively since the release of their first studio album in 2013; often sailing up and down the West Coast in their wooden ketch, playing at folk clubs, community dances, and music festivals on the Gulf & Discovery Islands.
