Back to Bluegrass!

The Details

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!

About Cumberland Village Works

The Village Works People symbol A few years ago we invited 2000 people to our 'front yard' for a big party, a wonderful celebration of music, culture and community. That event has since evolved into many outdoor festival style events and Cumberland Village Works has become a year-round host to some of the world's best performers.
