Bands from near and far close out summer of music in Duncan

The 40th Day of July, on Sunday, Sept. 3, at Duncan City Square, winds up the big festival.

It’s finally finished: the 39 Days of July festival came to an end on Sunday, Sept. 3 with a blowout session of concerts at Duncan City Square.

Music lovers, who’d been starved for the free shows since the regular festival ended Monday, Aug. 7, brought their lawnchairs to the Square and enjoyed a variety of talented performers from near and far.

It all started mid-afternoon with the Duncan Has Talent winners and contestants and the rest of the afternoon was devoted to guitar virtuoso TL Douglas, and young local rockers, The Porter Brothers, and Jared Popma.

As the supper hour approached, Jolie and Nina took the stage and they were followed at 6 p.m. by the Big Easy Funk Ensemble, an eight-piece Mardi Gras band from Vancouver.

Finally, last year’s big fan favourite, the five-piece Cuban group, Las Brisas del Palmar took the stage to end a super summer in the Square.
