In the modern musical landscape, it’s rare to hear something as put-together as the three-piece, Cascadian folk outfit West My Friend. West My Friend are veterans of the Victoria music scene, mingling grassroots guitar, mandolin, accordion, orchestral instruments, and interweaving harmonies.
In a world of increasing disconnection through digitization, it becomes even more important for people to gather and celebrate through the arts. West My Friend takes this impulse further than the expected: they perform music everywhere.
Specializing in performing in strange and unusual spaces, West My Friend is known for showing up wherever you’d least expect to hear live music. They’ve performed in a 100-year-old streetcar on a high-level bridge, a nudist resort, a yoga studio, a hot springs, a hayloft in a 100-year-old barn, museums, while basking in the warmth of a Swedish “Valborg” bonfire, and more!
