Hello all,
It has been a while. We would just like to let everyone know that Barley Wik is taking their first summer off since forming in 2003. Well, there is one exception and that is for Cottonwood Music Festival which takes place in Fort St.James, B.C on July 17th-19th.

It has just recently come to our attention that we were to be performing at this years Canadian Rocky Bluegrass Festival. Unfortunately, we were unaware of this announcement and will be unable to attend the festival. We are very sorry for any of you who were hoping to see us there.

Have a great summer and maybe we will see you in Fort St.James!
