Be Kind, Be Calm, Be Safe…
How absolutely wonderful it is to be able to gather again on Sunday nights at Norway House to sing and play and now to even share a cuppa ginger tea!
Enormous gratitude goes to all the volunteers, the musicians, the venue, the community, the universe and everything for coming together in this time and place to make The Folk’s rebirth possible! The VFMS is especially grateful for the patience, respect, and kindness shown by all, for all, as we slowly and cautiously resumed operation.
All public health orders regarding COVID-19 have now been lifted; however, many people continue to feel vulnerable and many health authorities continue to recommend wearing masks while in indoor public spaces.
Wearing a mask at the Folk Club is a personal choice, so please be respectful of everyone, whether they chose to mask-up or not. Your continued understanding and kindness are appreciated…immensely!

Coastline is a string ensemble comprised of BC’s top young musicians ranging from ages 14–21, coached and mentored by internationally acclaimed fiddler, Ivonne Hernandez. This award-winning band has already been making a name for themselves since their inception in January, 2013.

With fiddles, cellos, guitars and piano, the group of talented teens play a diverse and exciting repertoire. With intricate arrangements of traditional, original, and contemporary fiddle tunes from around the world, Coastline is pushing boundaries and always having a great time whenever they play.

Individually, the members of Coastline have won many awards and competitions, and as a group, their talents blend to form a strong, united sound that is a force to be reckoned with.
