Knacker’s Yard will headline the Cowichan Folk Guild Coffeehouse on Saturday, Oct. 10.

Held at Duncan United Church, the event kicks off with an open stage at 7:30 p.m. with the name group to follow.

Knacker’s Yard was formed by a group of friends who wanted to perform a wide range of primarily traditional Celtic and English folk songs, instrumentals and ballads.

To this end they have mined the repertoire of Ewan MacColl, Enoch Kent, Andy Irvine, the Dubliners, the Pogues, the Bothy Band and more.

Music lovers will hear tales of lost love and betrayal, emigration, the misdeeds of ramblers and rakes, hard drinking and hard living, sea shanties and workers’ songs.

Admission is $10 or $5 for CFG members.
