February 22nd, 2011 @ 10:35am (PT) by Rebecca Bollwitt

Granville Island’s Winterruption festival takes place this weekend, featuring concerts, plays, sculptural exhibitions, performances and plenty of activities for the kids. One of the concerts is with Current Swell, Saturday February 26th at 9:00pm.

Current Swell – Young And Able

Current Swell, a band based in Victoria BC, is in the foreground of the “new roots” music front pushing out of Canada’s west coast. The band has been around for a few years getting their early recognition around the world as a mainstay in the “surf rock” community.

Hayley Sales will also be performing and this will be an all-ages show with tickets on sale now for $15 in advance or $17 at the door.
