Cuba leads Midsummer Festival lineup

Cuba has played the festival numerous times before but this time he has backup from two very talented Bulkley Valley musicians.

Alex Cuba is excited to be back on stage at Smithers’ Midsummer Music Festival this weekend.

Cuba is one of the headliners of the 2014 event, which kicks off on Friday.

He’s played the festival numerous times before, as a solo artist and in group form, but this time he has backup from two talented Bulkley Valley musicians.

Earlier this year, Cuba teamed up with Jake Jenne and Ian Olmstead and the trio have toured the world playing their unique brand of Cuban-Canadian music.

“They’re inspiring me,” Cuba said. “They’re so energetic and talented.”

Who is Cuba excited to see perform?

“I want to see Theresa Pasaluko,” he said. “She’s very talented and has a beautiful voice and I’m glad to see that she’s moving forward.”

Cuba, Jenne and Olmstead play the Main Stage at midnight on Friday.

The 2014 Midsummer Music Festival’s opening ceremonies are Friday, July 4 at 5:45 p.m. and the last performer starts at 4:45 p.m. Sunday, July 6 on the Main Stage.
