Jennifer Louise Taylor and Ken Hall grace the Market stage this Saturday: “Together as Bentwood, Jennifer Louise Taylor and Ken Hall create wonderfully harmonic and beautifully arranged roots music. Jennifer Louise Taylor has toured Canada and the US, and been a guest studio musician for CBC national radio. From the folk tradition, her songs are designed to help us connect with ourselves. Ken Hall is a prominent figure in the Victoria music scene. His magical fingers have graced the sounds of Sunyata, the Stomp Club, Emily Braden Trio, Saffron, Kumbia, and The Sara Merrerios band.”  Need tools sharpened? MidKnife Crisis will be at the Market on Saturday along with a host of local farms, craft and food vendors. Come on out to the Saanich Fairground and enjoy a country morning among friends. Lots of free parking.
