• Pre-ArtsWells Concert featuring artists performing at the festival

    BC is replete with summer music festivals. From Vancouver to Atlin, hundreds of thousands of festival-goers flock to parks, stadiums, and campgrounds to soak in the sounds of summer. One of the most idiosyncratic and beloved festivals in BC is The ArtsWells Festival, which takes place in Wells, a picturesque Cariboo mining town. Describing Wells to the uninitiated is not easy. More of a Canadian Folk Music Family Reunion than a music festival, community building lies at the core of ArtsWells. It is that sense of community that brings artists and art lovers back year after year.

    For those unable to make the 10 hour drive up for the festival, we've got a sampling of some of the finest musicians heading to Wells this year, right here in the big city. Join us at The Rickshaw Theatre on Sunday, July 29th for intimate performances by...
