So,e help required! I am seeking contact with a Vancouver Island-based band called "Katangus". May jog someone's memory if they know that this group were resident at Butchart Gardens for a time this summer. Any assistance appreciated!

I heartily concur! They put on a concert at the just-concluded North West Regional Esperanto Conference (at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney) last Saturday evening, and they are really good; of course the fact that one of their numbers was in Esperanto ("La Nigra Ruband'" - the Black Velvet Ribbon) biases me, but I would like them even without that.

PS: I won $150 (! CAD, but still!!) at the conference for my Esperanto translation of "Cool Water".

I heard they were from Nova Scotia? Does anyone know where they hail from? Thanks I was given the cds which are fantastic, but would like to know something about them.

No idea where they're really from. They seemed to be local when I attended their concert in Sidney in '03 as noted above. They billed their sound as "West Coast Celtic", so I doubt they're from the Maritime Provinces. Unfortunately their AngelFire website is gone and Google doesn't suggest an alternative.

Hello!
My name is Fae and I played with Kitangus from 1999-2003. The band is from Vancouver Island, BC Canada. They are still playing and making great music at the Buchart Gardens in the summers. During the year you can catch them at the local Irish pub called.. The Irish Times.

They currently do not have a website but the email that was posted earlier is still current.

Check out Melody's solo project! It's fabulous! and if you liked Kitangus then you may have caught a "Syren" moment or two at the gardens. Syren is the duo project of Melody and me. Our music can be found at www.myspace.com/syrenmusic.

Hope that helps!
Happy St Pat's!
Slainte!

I heard them at the Butchart Gardens in 2002 and love their music....is there anywhere you can buy their newer cd's online? I live in the UK now so can't just pop over to the gardens!
