Back to Bluegrass!
Archie, Tammy, Annie-Lou and special guests will be featured this week.
The Brunch features delicious home-style food, live music, and good times. Food service 10:30 Music 11 – 1PM.
Fast becoming a local institution, the Brunch was initiated by Cumberland musician Archie Pateman in November 2011. Pateman, co-founder of Vancouver roots band The Breakmen and local favourites The Cumberland Brothers, approached the Waverley Hotel with the idea after having started a similar event in Vancouver (still going strong after many years). Known for its support of local arts and culture, the Waverley signed on with enthusiasm, and patrons now enjoy great food while they listen to a mix of bluegrass and old-time classics, standards, oddballs, and originals.
This joyful spontaneity combined with strong musicianship is part of what makes Bluegrass Brunch a favourite event in Cumberland and the surrounding communities. People travel from Nanaimo, Campbell River, and beyond to enjoy great breakfast and great music. Come on down!
