David Godkin and the Arrogant Sheep bring a blend of folk and maritime ballad to the stage, with a few nice blues licks thrown in for good measure.
The band includes:
David Godkin who has written versatile and memorable songs about growing up in Atlantic Canada, lost love and occasional triumphs of ordinary people;
mandolin player Rick Van Krugel whose raw, intuitive style has become a mainstay of the Vancouver Island music scene; and
the newest friend and bandmate is Mike Sadava, a guitarist with a deft, imaginative touch on the fret board and unbounded enthusiasm for music of all kinds.
We will also have an open stage segment, including Terry Brennan and Casandra Paxton and others.
