Bluegrass jams popular

The Sooke River Boys will perform at bluegrass jamboree

Last month there was a Bluegrass Jamboree at the Sooke Legion with lots of amazing musicians getting together to jam on some well known tunes. Afterwards the feature act jumped up on stage and played a set of tunes. Folks were tapping their toes along with the beat, and a few couples even got up to dance. Well it was so much fun we are doing it again.
