As molecules in constant motion keep bumping into each other, so too do the current members of Hardly Handsome. Bill and Craig used to jam with a mutual friend in Calgary. Then Bill played in the Highpoint Bluegrass Band in Edmonton with Lee. Then Bill played with Craig in Nomad Jones. Bill met Mick when he moved to Victoria and they've enjoyed jamming together ever since. Now they all live in Victoria and are quite happy to be bringing their bluegrass favourites to the VBA.
Hardly /Handsome is Bill Humby on vocals and guitar, Mick Baker on mandolin and vocals, Lee Foote on banjo and vocals and Craig Korth on bass and vocals.
It's a new season for the VBA. Our regular weekly programming begins Tuesday September 5th with our hosted Slow Pitch (introductory jam), and Old Time Jam.
Start time is unchanged from 7:45 pm ending at 9:45 (sharp!) There has been some interest in starting and ending earlier and we will poll jam attendees in the three September sessions to identify the interest level.
We host an hour long beginner jam that is followed by a jam targeted at intermediate players. There is also a vibrant old time jam held in the large Sunday School room that has ample space for all.
Parking is off Chambers Street and entry is via the side door off the parking lot.
Jam fees are still ridiculously low. $2 for members, $3 for non members and listeners by donation.
