will be naming the Mainstage Sound Booth "Garberville" in honour of Simon Garber, who manned the board from the early 1980s until last year. Si had hoped to make it to the inauguration of Garberville but sadly passed away from liver cancer in May 2013.
There will be a short tribute and unveiling at 4:45 pm on Friday, July 19, 2013, just before the start of the Mainstage Performance.
Those attending will need to purchase a ticket to the Friday Evening Concert. Entrance to the Friday evening concert will be $50 at the Gate or $45 before 9 pm on Thursday, July 18. Go to http://thefestival.bc.ca/ticket-information/ for more information.
We hope you can attend the unveiling, enjoy the Friday evening concert and support the Vancouver Folk Music Festival which was near and dear to Simon's heart even to his last days.
