Factories and Alleyways are excited about being the house band for CBC’s “On The Coast - In Your Neighbourhood” at McBurney’s Tea and Coffee House on Friday

Factories & Alleyways is CBC’s house band in Langley

CBC will broadcast two shows at McBurney’s Tea and Coffee House on Friday, Jan. 24. The community is invited to listen in.

CBC Radio: In Your Neighbourhood is coming to McBurney Lane in Langley City with musical guests Factories and Alleyways on Friday, Jan. 24.

The Early Edition with host Rick Cluff (5:30 to 8:30 a.m.) will be chatting with B.C. Education Minister Peter Fassbender and former mayor of Langley City. They will also chat with downtown BIA executive director Teri James who also is a city councillor.

On The Coast with host Stephen Quinn, from 3 to 6 p.m., will be broadcasting live from McBurney’s Tea and Coffee House.

On The Coast will be discussing the hot-button issues affecting the community. Included in the panel discussion will be Langley Times reporter Monique Tamminga.

The community is welcome to come check out the live broadcast.

They will also have live music throughout the show from Factories & Alleyways — a band whose members all hail from Langley. This tight-knit folk group has been bringing concerts to local venues.

Their sound is danceable country folk with some ballads in between. They are excited to be chosen for this special Langley-based CBC show.

“It’s a special remote broadcast and we’ll be playing one song in each half hour of the show,” said Factories and Alleyways’ Jeremy Allingham.

“Landing a big gig like this is huge for us and it keeps with the trajectory of the opportunities we’ve been getting over the past while. Everything from playing record store day, car free day, playing the final day at Mushroom Studios and now, CBC Radio.”

 

Their debut album, ‘Canadiana’ launched this summer and has been getting great reviews. It’s available on iTunes and at Krazy Bob’s on Fraser Highway.
