The JUNO Award winning band, The Paperboys, have been delighting audiences around the world for nearly 20 years. Whether it's a big festival stage, or an intimate art gallery, these guys never fail to deliver a high energy set with their fusion of Irish, Mexican, and Roots Folk. At the heart of this band is the talent of Tom Landa, who writes and sings in both English and Spanish. Joining Tom are Geoffrey Kelly (Spirit of The West) on flute, Brad Gillard on bass and banjo, Kalissa Hernandez on fiddle, Sam Esecson on drums and Nick La Riviere on trombone. They are no strangers to The BAG and if you've not seen them yet, they are a must see band.

"It's like Guinness with a tequila chaser while listening to an Americana Jukebox… A place where Irish, Mexican and Roots music collide.”  The Seattle Weekly

Mexican Son Jarocho mixed in with Irish Jigs and Reels and a good dose of Country and Bluegrass. It has healthy servings of Ska, Soca and African Highlife and we've been known to throw in a little White Boy Reggae. Of course it also has strains of Soul, Pop and Funk although we are by no means a funk band. It is mostly Acoustic although we also like Electric guitars. It is Singer-Songwriter based but not the coffee house variety. It is definitely FOLK music, but not in the Kumbaya style. It has a deep respect and appreciation for tradition (Bluegrass, Old Time, Celtic, Son) but it's by no means Traditional. It Rocks incredibly hard and is extremely danceable, but that is not to say it can't be mellow and slow and beautiful. It can be heart breaking, but also joyous. It is never dark or angst ridden, and always full of hope - but not in the 'Up With People' kind of way. It's not Jazz, although we like Jazz a lot. It's not heavy metal or punk or grunge, although we love Rush and AC/DC. It is World Roots Music. It's POP music. It is GOOD music. It has a tendency to connect people and means a lot to many folks the world over, and for that we are very grateful. It is the only multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, multi-generational, multi-lingual, multi-instrumental, genre bending, co-ed band you will hear today!!

Art of the Natural World continues.
Eagles, First Nations Carvings, Emily Carr plus Gallery Artists.
