Old-time stringband the High Quadra Ramblers are the guest artists as the Sooke Folk Music Society Coffee House launches a new season on Sept. 21.

The Ramblers are Mack Shields on fiddle and vocals and Kaitlin Chamberlin on banjo and vocals.

The duo create their own interpretation of traditional music – fusing oldtime with classical, Celtic, bluegrass and more. Hailing from the East Coast and the West Coast, the Ramblers bring both sides of the continent together for the love of traditional music.

Since appearing on the West Coast music scene a year ago, the Ramblers have been very active, completing three tours, playing in Canada and the U.S., released their debut album and two EPs with another album on the way.

Check them out here.

The Coffee House is held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 1962 Murray Rd. in Sooke. Doors open at 7 p.m., with open stage performances at 7:30 p.m.and the feature performance beginning at 9 p.m.

The cost is $7.50 and $5 for open stage performers.
