Sweet Cascadia played the Roberts Creek Hall in November, 2012 for the Sunshine Coast Conservation Association's Celebration of Conservation. They return this Saturday, Feb. 16 for their Winter Party show at the Roberts Creek Legion.

If you haven't heard much from Sweet Cascadia lately, it's because they've been hard to find over the last year or so.

After they held a sold-out CD release party at the Roberts Creek Hall in February 2011, the Gibsons/Roberts Creek-based seven-piece string band did what all large groups of too-busy people do sometimes - they got too busy to hang out with each other.

True, they got together here and there, playing a handful of public events and private parties in 2011 and 2012. But organizing seven people to get together and practise, especially when those seven people are busy raising kids, raising chickens, teaching, working, learning, tending backyard gardens and occasionally sleeping, is no mean feat.

It took a force of will - and dozens of emails - to get Sweet Cascadia up and moving again. But when they reconvened themselves, they had such a good time that they didn't want it to stop. So they organized a winter party.

This Saturday, Feb. 16, at Roberts Creek's venerable Little Legion, Sweet Cascadia is inviting the whole community to come and dance away their winter lethargy to the sounds of the Sunshine Coast's one and only eco-folk super group.

Featuring new songs and new arrangements of old songs, this winter party is a golden opportunity to come out of hibernation, say hello to your neighbours and invite springtime back in. Tickets are available at the door, which opens at 8 p.m. Admission is $10 ($5 for Legion members).

This show is 19-plus. Sweet Cascadia advises that you support the local babysitting industry!
