Down Home Music
FV Blues Society
an open stage for locals
Cora Price, Yarrow
Price is the director and founder of the Fraser Valley Blues
"I wanted to get live music
closer to home so out of that thought came the Fraser Valley Blues
Society. Our non-profit society hosts, promotes and lives live music
in the Fraser Valley," she said.
"We hold monthly jam sessions for musicians, as well as hosting live
bands. Keeping live events close to home, affordable and having fun
doing it is a rewarding experience.," added Price.
Part of the proceeds go to the Devon Clifford Foundation, founded by
Devon's family to support young musicians through supplying
instruments and education in music.
