A five-piece band from Calgary, The Wellington Folk, are making one of their six stops on a B.C. tour in Abbotsford.

They will appear at the House of James on Friday, Sept. 18 at 7:30 p.m.

This is the first visit of the folk rock band to the west coast and they are excited about playing in new venues, finding new enthusiasts, promoting their new EP Counting the Steps and sampling west coast microbrews.

They are fresh off a good showing in the CBC 2015 searchlight competition. Asked to describe their music, Sarah Kemmers, the creative force behind the band, says “I guess we’re a blend of folk, rock, blues with a bit of an indie twist.”

The group has been together for about four years, and are a tight, skilled band that is highly entertaining.
