Tim Hortons Summer Concert Series
Knackers Yard






Bring your lawn chair or blanket to the Picnic Shelter at the Parksville Community Park and enjoy this free concert brought to you by Tim Hortons. Be sure to stop in to visit our Sand Sculpture Exhibition and view incredible works of art made from just sand and water.

Hailing from Victoria, British Columbia (Coast Salish Territories), Knackerís Yard has been arranging and performing traditional Irish, Scottish, English, Australian, and original music since 2013.
Comprised of Bronwyn Churcher (fiddle, vocals), Stephen Johnson (accordion, tin whistle, vocals), Jon MacDonald (guitar, vocals), Cody Baresich (mandolins, vocals), Shaun McConnell (bodhran, bones, chimes), and Dexter Simpson (Irish tenor banjo), the group breathes new life into the Celtic ballad and shanty genres.
The energy of the bandís expansive repertoire ebbs and flows with drive and dynamism, as they pay tribute to, and take inspiration from, legendary predecessors like The Dubliners, The Pogues, Planxty, The Clancy Brothers, The Chieftains, and The Wolfe Tones. Intricate lead work, driving rhythms, finely crafted arrangements, and careful attention to slow airs and ballads makes for a listening experience that is both powerful and enduring.
