The Victoria Folk Music Society acknowledges with respect and gratitude the Coast Salish People upon whose traditional territories we live, work, and play. We honour and
give special thanks to the Lekwungen and Saanich peoples, also called the Songhees, Esquimalt, Tsartlip, Pauquachin, Tsawout and Tseycum First Nations.

Welcome Back, Folks! Be Kind, Be Calm, Be Safe
As legally required, the Victoria Folk Music Society follows all Public Health Orders. Since COVID-19 restrictions have been subject to change, sometimes with very little notice, we will do our best to keep well-informed and follow the most current rules. In the case of masking and social distancing, although public orders (PHOs) may no longer be in place, we strongly encourage everyone to continue these practices while at the Folk club.
Many of our members are older or have health challenges that put them at increased risk of infection, and such kindness goes a long way to respect and protect those who may be most vulner- able. While it should go without saying, if you are sick or have been exposed to COVID-19 or any other infectious condition, please stay home and take care until you know you are well.

Connie and Niels met in 1980 and have been performing together ever since. Their musical journey has taken them all over the world. Both strong solo performers in their own right, they enjoy harnessing their vocal harmonies and performing as a duo. Although covering many styles of music, the husband and wife team were both influenced by Gordon Lightfoot, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Peter Paul and Mary, and Ian Tyson to name a few. Tonight’s feature will include songs by the above as well as originals. Connie and Niels are very excited to once again be invited to perform at the Victoria Folk Music Society. They look forward to a fun musical evening.
