The Unfaithful Servants are Dylan Stone, Jesse Cobb, Miriam Sonstenes and Dennis Seimens. 

Founding member DYLAN STONE is a prolific songwriter and guitarist living in Victoria, BC. He makes his living playing music in Rock, Folk, and County bands and as a solo artist. His varied career in music has seen him perform with Robert Randolf, open for Keith Urban, and trade songs with Alejandro Escovedo. 

American born Mandolinist JESSE COBB could be described as a virtuoso on his instrument. He has performed on the historic stage of The Grand Old Opry, toured the world, and received a Grammy nomination for one of his compositions. He has recorded and performed with the likes of Bela Fleck, Lee Anne Womack, Dirks Bentley, and Jim Lauderdale among others. 

MIRIAM SONSTENES plays fiddle for beloved Canadian roots trio The Sweet Lowdown, who have won and been nominated for various awards at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, Western Canadian Music Awards, and Vancouver Island Music Awards. Miriam has studied under bluegrass fiddle legend Bobby Hicks and has recently toured with CBC's Stuart Mclean and the Vinyl Cafe. 

Finally, on Upright Bass, is DENNIS SEIMENS Dennis Seimens. Dennis is the youngest member of the group yet possibly the most road-worn. He has toured up, down, and around North America with Canadian favorite Carolyn Mark and collaborated with numerous Canadian folk and country acts.

TALES OF AN IRISH IMMIGRANT

As part of our mixed art programming, we are very pleased to welcome Dermot McCann to NQ for an early evening reading from his enjoyable book 'McCanns Shorts: True Tales of an Irish Immigrant"

Come and enjoy a glass of wine, a delicious bite to eat and a story from a natural storyteller. 

In the tradition of true Irish storytelling, McCann’s Shorts takes you by the hand and leads you on a nostalgic, often hilarious and sometimes tragic journey of one man through the second half of the 20th Century. Mother meets father in war-torn Belfast. Boys will be boys in small-town Ontario in the ’50s. Near misses and perfect endings. The foreshadowing—and numbing experience—of loss. This collection delivers them all, in an original and authentic voice informed by memory and a thousand verbal retellings.

Everyone welcome.

BOOK READING AT 6:00pm

KICTHEN & BAR OPEN FROM 5pm
