The Paperboys march to beat of own drummer

It’s hard to pin The Paperboys down to one genre. But, that’s a good thing.

The Vancouver-based group, who are appearing at the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre on Thursday, Feb. 11, defy would-be pigeon holers with performances that ride the range wherever music is enjoyed.

Mexican Son Jarocho mixes with Irish jigs and reels and a good dose of country and bluegrass in selections that also rub shoulders with ska, soca and African highlife not to mention a little white boy Reggae.

There’s strains of soul, pop and funk played by folks who enjoy electric guitars but are also singer/songwriters.

As they themselves say, “It is definitely folk music, but not in the Kumbaya style.”

What we say is, go see the Paperboys if you are looking for a great evening of entertainment.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $28 for adults, $25 for seniors and students. Get them at cowichanpac.ca or call the Cowichan Ticket Centre at 250-748-7529 to order.
