Blackberry Wood will take the stage at The Royal to celebrate the Nelson music venue's 100th birthday.

Blackberry Wood helps celebrate The Royal in Nelson’s 100th birthday

Blackberry Wood comes to Nelson to play The Royal's 100th birthday party.

We live in a global community. We are connected by the Internet. The music we hear is from all over the world; a mash up of different cultures and styles.

Ambassadors of this musical reality, Blackberry Wood combine a mélange of styles into their own danceable sound.

Formed in Vancouver in 2004, the project originally began as a duo.

As the repitoire and set list expanded, so too did the membership, eventually growing to an eight piece band.

Combining guitar, upright bass, banjo, drums, percussion, and horns, their soaring harmonies and excellent, danceable songs are only part of the story.

Taking their cues from Vaudeville acts of the ‘20s and ‘30s, every member is decked out in flashy costume, and the live show is a combination of both music and theatre.

To date, they’ve released two albums, which have been well-received by critics and fans alike, and have a third album rumoured to drop any day now.

With loads of shows played all over North America and Europe, including several appearances at the legendary Glastonbury Festival, jump into your Model T Roadster and head down to The Royal!

Blackberry Wood is hugely popular here in town, they’re part of The Royal’s 100th birthday party; the festivities get going after MarketFest, around 10 p.m.
