I think I captured the essence of the Soggy Peso country music event on Wednesday February 15th.
As part of the third annual Island Time Fishing Festival, that includes a fishing tournament and a fabulous line-up of country music stars, the Soggy Peso Bar and Grill once again hosted a fun-filled afternoon of music and laughter. It's a great way to raise money to help support the Little Yellow School House charity. www.Islandtimefishingfestival.com
The afternoon started off with a thirty-minute performance by singer-songwriter Danielle Braund.
She had an opportunity to showcase her gorgeous voice and original material, singing just before Nick Norman and Jon Stone arrived to perform. Danielle is originally from Ontario Canada. She and her friend Kristi Kirik both worked with Lawrie at Hillside Estate Winery in the Okanagan Valley BC. http://www.daniellebraund.com/

The two guys were fabulous - entertaining, joking with the crowd while singing non-stop. Nick's a South Carolina Southern-Baptist boy who dreamed of playing his guitar instead of attending Sunday school. His killer smile and bluesy raspy voice are beautiful compliments to the smooth guitar notes. He calls his music country rock. Check out Nick's website for more information about his music. http://www.nicknormanband.com/
Jon Stone of The Jon Stone Band is a Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based artist who performs tributes to country music outlaws of the 60's and 70's. He pays homage to artists such as Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and David Allan Coe. These two guys played together last year at the Soggy Peso, wowing the crowd with their music and humour.

And tonight, Friday February 17th, the annual Carnival festivities rev up. One festival is ending, and the other is just beginning!
