Yet another premier event arriving in Fernie BC this September 30 to October 2nd! Welcome Gillbilly 2016. The Snow Valley Motel & RV Park is proud to be one of two exclusive accommodation providers for the event.

What is Gillbilly 2016 you ask!

Gillbilly is two full days of music and fun hosted by the The Old Type Music Society. A perfect mix of old-time music, jamming, food, good times and plenty of free time for fishing on the Elk River. Not into fishing? bring your bike, hike or do some busking downtown in beautiful Fernie BC. More information about the schedule and format here. (taken off the official Gillbilly website)

Confirmed performer/instructors are Chris Coole (Lonesome Ace Stringband, Foggy Hogtown Boys) and Ben Winship (Growling Old Men, New Reeltime Travellers) and recently added to the lineup is Eli West (Cahalen Morrison & Eli West, The Lomax Project). Rounding out the concerts and beginner workshops will be local yokels Redgirl and new East Kootenay duo The Doggone Brothers. More details about the performers here.
