If you enjoyed Hannah Epperson at the March 2018 Electro-Acoustic Showcase, don’t miss Fanfare – originally a well-known fixture from Alberta’s music scene, but more recently residing in Qualicum Beach. His set at the 2019 Koksilah Music Festival (where GCEMS provided sound) was one of the more memorable moments of the weekend.
Fanfare, aka Cam Boyce, has worn many hats, quite literally and figuratively, for fashion AND for the pursuit of musical fruit. He has been a part of countless bands ranging from metal, punk, funk, folk, country and jazz and has been in front of them as well as behind. Most recently, he has taken to travelling to Eastern countries in order to learn more about the strange yet alluring folk songs. His solo creation Fanfare is a culmination of all of these 20 years of musical exploration. Its a unique solo act, looping both guitar and violin alongside deep soulful vocals and fresh beatbox beats. The style definitely leans somewhere between Otis Redding, Owen Pallett and klezmer. Each show has a flair of uniqueness owing to much room for improvisation and use of transitions between songs.
FANFARE will be performing alongside THE RIGHTEOUS RAINBOWS OF TOGETHERNESS. A FREE outdoor presentation in the outdoor courtyard of the Victoria Public Library (covered in case of rain!), supported by the BC Arts Council, Capital Regional District, City of Victoria and the Greater Victoria Public Library, with assistance from Long & McQuade and Metropol Industries.
