  Roy Forbes

Saturday, September 24 8:00pm
Harrison Memorial Hall
Tickets: $22.00 
Vancouver’s  Legendary folk musician and beloved singer Roy Forbes will once again grace the stage on Saturday, Sept 24th at 8:00pm in the intimate Harrison Memorial Hall as the first Fall show of the Harrison Festival Society's 29th Season Lineup.
In July 1971, 18 year old Roy Forbes left his northern B.C. hometown of Dawson Creek for the bright lights of Vancouver. His songwriting, singing and guitar playing landed him immediate local attention with a late 1971 headline-making appearance at Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre, just one of the highlights of his first few months in the big city.

Roy and his trusty Gurian guitar have toured extensively in Canada and the US over these past three decades. From the early days of small coffee houses and opening act slots with artists like John Lee Hooker, Supertramp, The Earl Scruggs Revue and Santana to eventually selling out his own shows and headlining most of the major Folk Music festivals in Canada, Roy has developed into one of Canada’s best loved acoustic performers.
