Audiences all over North America are falling in love with the funny, upbeat Good Lovelies. Winners of the 2010 Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) and a nominee in 2012 for Roots Album of the Year, as well as being awarded Vocal Group of the Year in 2011 at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Good Lovelies are making waves across Canada, the United States, and now in the UK and Australia.

The aptly named Good Lovelies are Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, all of them best friends. Part folk-roots, part Western Swing, the Toronto-based trio relies on unerring three-part vocal harmonies, clever songs, and, on stage, funny repartee drawn from a seemingly endless succession of comedic adventures on the road.

Time and distance had a profound effect on events as they unfolded during the Pig War crisis of 1859 as installation of the transcontinental telegraph was two years away and the Pony Express did not come into being until 1860. Learn when the telegraph arrived here and how it affected communications on San Juan Island in this presentation by Park ranger Doug Halsey.
