Coffee Houses

Next Coffee House will be  March 11

Be sure to join us for John Gogo.

Vancouver Island singer-songwriter John Gogo comes from a large musical family in the Nanaimo area. His musical career has already spanned more than three decades, ranging from his early days in the prog rock band Graphics, which featured two other Gogo brothers, through to his solo acoustic career which continues to this day.  His debut album “Coal & Wood” came out in 1990, followed up by “It Never Fails” in 1994, which featured the hit track "Baby Blue”. More touring, appearances on Canadian television, and plenty of airplay on Much Music and CMT would follow for Gogo. The Victoria Times Colonist has called John “one of the most talented singer/songwriter this area has ever produced”.  

John’s music ranges from roots and folk, through to country and even pop. His latest release, “Coal & Wood (revisited)” marks a return to his folk singer days, featuring a few tunes from the original album, as well as an historical perspective on Canada’s West Coast. John Gogo is a wonderful and engaging performer and we’re thrilled to welcome him as our featured artist at the March 2017 Coffeehouse.

See you on Saturday March 11th.   

 Duncan United Church 246 Ingram Street - Admission $10 or $5 for CFG members. Doors open at 7:00 pm.  Open Stage starts at 7:30 pm.


April 8 Coffee House Kristia Di Gregorio

The Cowichan Folk Guild is happy to welcome Victoria based artist Kristia Di Gregorio as our featured artist for the April Coffeehouse.  
Kristia is a remarkable singer and songwriter, and a past Vancouver Island Music Award winner. Her most recent album, The Whiplash Curve is a lush and beautiful collection of songs, recorded with the Juno winning, and Grammy nominated producer Joby Baker. Kristia's songs have a larger-than-life, cinematic quality to them, and her recent work takes listeners on a journey through the Belle Époque, or the "beautiful era".  A period in Western Europe between the 1870's and early 1900's marked in part by a thriving arts and music scene.  Kristia is an engaging performer, and an imaginative and enthusiastic story teller.
