Vancouver Island Folk Festival 2018

Ocie Elliott is Sierra Lundy and Jon Middleton, who are based out of Victoria these days. The two met on Salt Spring Island in 2012, and started singing together in about 2015. They've been building some serious buzz as a duo in recent months, with a number of high profile gigs coming up this year.  Jon is originally from Shawnigan Lake here in the Cowichan Valley and has been a mainstay on the Island music scene for years, both as a solo artist, with his band Jon and Roy, and now with this new duo project that is rapidly picking up of rave reviews. He has of course played the IFF over the years, most recently in 2016 with the uber-popular Jon and Roy.  Sierra Lundy is a multi-talented musician, visual artist, and designer, to name just a few things. She's a stunning singer with one of those voices that will grab you from the moment she sings her first notes. Together they make beautiful folk music, with rich harmonies and clear tinges of the “West Coast vibe” layered in. We’re very excited they are coming to play the festival this year.
