Barley Wik coming to Grizfest August 5, 2007

Barley Wik is a charismatic, passionate, and powerful group of women whose harmonies and musical versatility result in performances that engage audiences from the depths of their hearts to the soles of their feet. Their sound reflects a musical style as diverse as their individual histories. Each member brings something unique to the band.

By writing and performing songs with universally relevant themes, Barley Wik creates an eclectic sound that incorporates a wide range of musical forms and styles from old-time country, folk and blues to foot-tapping spirituals. Since forming in 2002, the Victoria based band has produced three independently recorded and critically acclaimed CD?s. Their most recent CD Beyond the Down has been gracing the CBC airwaves since its release.

Jane Siberry describes Barley Wik?s music as ?heart, spirit, wide, dusty (but clear), great energy.? Barley Wik have made many successful cross-Canada tours and are a fixture on Victoria?s vibrant music scene. They are a creative force that stands up and stands out.
