Well we had a busy weekend at the Streaming Cafe with three shows. Thursday night was a success raising over 800 dollars for Free The Children. Louise Kent put on an entertaining show.
On Friday we had Jon-Rae Fletcher, Acres and Acres and Jon Mckiel. Two acts (Acres and Acres, Jon Mckiel) got held up in traffic on their way from Vancouver Island to Kelowna. Jon-Rae very capably took the first set with the other acts arriving mid way through it. After a hasty soundcheck during the break Acres and Acres took it away, very impressively.
It was well worth the wait, Acres and Acres and Jon Mckiel put on a spectacular show for a packed house. The show was so good we’ve opted to put up three archives (4 songs from every artist) up on our site. check it out.
AND, on Saturday we had the talented indie band from Vancouver, Redgy Blackout. It power packed weekend at the Streaming Cafe.
Here are a few videos and pics from this weekend.

This weekend we had a great show on Friday with Paul O’Brien. I knew from the moment I walked into the cafe and saw Paul working up a version of Little Drummer Boy on the boran we were in for a great night of folk music. It only got better at sound check with Paul’s exception guitar tone and soothing voice. Paul’s songwriting was also excellent throughout the set. A very enjoyable concert.
Cale Stanage – Saturday Night:
Paul O’Brien’s Friday show promises to be a great evening of celtic and traditional folk. Cale Stanage, a indie folk artist out of Abotsford is playing this Saturday.
