Roxeen & Dalrymple coming to Chemainus on November 10, 2018

Nova Scotia’s Roxeen & Dalrymple is a classic guitar and mandolin vocal duet, performing in the traditional styles of bluegrass, country and gospel music. Originally teamed together 25 years ago as band mates of the legendary Spinney Brothers, they are now performing together again, playing the music they cherish. The duo consists of Roxeen Roberts and Gary Dalrymple. Collectively they are highly respected, veteran musicians with impressive musical resumes. They are multiple East Coast Music Awards (ECMAs) nominees, Maritime Gospel Music awards (MGMA) nominees, and have won numerous Eastern Canadian Bluegrass Music Awards (ECBMAs). They have toured coast to coast in Canada and the United States and now, after careers of extensive travel and performing and recording, the duo couldn’t be more excited as to where they have landed musically.

The duo will be appearing in Chemainus, at St Michael's Hall on Mill Street (located opposite the Post Office parking lot), on Saturday, November 10, 2018. The show starts at 7:00 PM; tickets are $12 in advance, or $15 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased at Rainforest Arts, located at 9871 Willow Street in Chemainus (in the Credit Union building), or email us at

Well, it's all over for another year. We'll enjoy the rest of the bluegrass festival season, then we'll think about getting started on the organization of the 2019 Chemainus Festival

The 2018 festival was a real success, with really great music from the beginning right through to the end. What a great group of bands we had at Waterwheel Park this year! And our plan is to make next year's festival evenbetter - if that's possible!

Thank you very much to our previous sponsors - please consider joining them in 2018...
