The 8th Annual Tribute to Dr. Peter Narvaez

Soooooo, it’s that time of year again when all the friends and band mates begin dusting off the repertoire of Narvaez numbers and the guitarists feel that familiar ache in the forearms and harmonica dudes start thinking about maybe hitting the treadmill a bit more.

Because it’s crazy stuff folks. Anyone who had the pleasure of playing with Peter knows that you really had to be extra sharp and bring your best chops to keep up with him. He kept the best of musical company and inspired many people in many ways during his time here.

The lineup for the evening includes Crooked Stovepipe, Sandy Morris, Denis Parker, the Low Yo Stuff, Glen Tilley, Duane Andrews, Erin Power, Dave Mundy & Callum Latta, and more to be added no doubt!

As Dr. Narvaez was a regular supporter of the Mary A. Griffiths Memorial Bursary for Folklore Field Research, we always provide the opportunity to make a donation at this event. You can find out more about the scholarship here:
