Roberts Creek: Kickin’ it old school in the Gumboot Nation

Friday da 29th at the Legion RC, yo! It’s Fly Female MC Friday! Drip Drop It Like Hip Hop will be showcasing females in hip hop. Ndidi Cascade, founder of the Word, Sound and Power and Elementalz education programs, is currently touring B.C. schools with her group Metaphor to raise awareness of the origins of the hip hop movement. Also on the bill are Quean of the Green, DJ Alban Arthan and Homegirl Kaya. $10 members, $20 non-members. 

Also at Roberts Creek Legion, Alban Arthan and DJ Honeybee are up to it Saturday night. These local DJ spin doctors do their thang from 9 p.m. 

Creek Clayworks has their biggest event of the year, the Christmas Pottery Sale and Studio Open House, Saturday, Nov. 30 and Sunday, Dec. 1. The studio will be filled with pots from both the electric and salt kilns, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, at 1738 Lockyer Rd. in Roberts Creek, 604-885-2395. 

As I peer into the future, I see that this week brings the Infinity Psychic Fair to Roberts Creek Hall, Saturday, Nov. 30, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The $5 entry includes three tickets for a door prize. Come enjoy the energy; there will be readers, prizes, food, guest speakers and vendors. 

Bad to the Bow presents a free concert at the Hall, A Christmas Extravaganza, Sunday, Dec. 1 from 1 to 3:30 p.m. This community youth fiddle group is made up of 11 high school-aged fiddlers, coached by Gabriel Dubreuil, playing a large repertoire of fiddle tunes from every corner of the world and contemporary fiddle music composed by the group itself. Joining them is Coastline, a string ensemble of B.C.’s top young musicians ranging from ages 14 to 21, coached and mentored by acclaimed fiddler Ivonne Hernandez. It’s the fiddle event of the season!

Streamkeepers are at it again with their monthly invasive plant removal event, the last Saturday of the month. It’s Malcolm Creek’s turn. Drive to bottom of Metcalfe Road, and look for the Beach Access sign. They will be near the bridge over Malcolm Creek on the path. Parking is limited, so best park on Lower Road and walk the short distance down Metcalfe. Bring gloves, eye protection, and clippers or loppers. Streamkeepers will provide tarps, rakes and garbage cans. A pickup or  trailer would be awesome! Email for more info.
