Music

Freedom is the philosophy of the music program at Brewery & The Beast. And that rare mindset – held in check by the Electric Timber Company – has attracted some of the best musicians in Canada to the festival over the years.

The music of Brewery & The Beast is meant to reflect and compliment the creativity of our chefs. With their unique original music and classic covers, the Electric Timber Company cooks up a boogie stew of whose key ingredients are the blues, rock, rhythm and roots. There’s never a minute without music, from the time the gates at Brewery & The Beast open until they close, which makes for a collaborative and creative experience. That same philosophy applies to our rotating roster of guest artists over the years: Jim Byrnes, The Sojourners, David Gogo, CR Avery, Matt Masters, Wil, Daniel Lapp, Kendel Carson, Paul Pigat, Nick La Riviere, Washboard Union, Dougal Bain McLean, and members of Jon and Roy, Jets Overhead, Towers and Trees, and Current Swell have all stopped by and sat in unannounced at Brewery & The Beast, making musical magic along the way.

The Electric Timber Company has progressively expanded its reach the old-fashioned way – set by set, gig by gig, fan by fan – and should tell audiences everything they need to know. Country barn dance, sweaty nightclub, hallowed hall – if there’s an audience in the mood for a “soulgrass” shakedown, that’s where you’ll find The Electric Timber Company.
