An Irish Scene & The Banjo Man

The Dubh Linn Gate is an Irish Pub located at the base of the Mountain in Whistler's Village. Known for their incredible tap selections, and kilted sassy wait staff, it's a global clientele.   You can have your Guinness with your Irish scrambled at 9am before you even hit the slopes. Or, at Apres, you will be entertained with live music and a jammed packed pub at 4pm.

I had the pleasure of meeting Cam Salay at The Dubh in 2008 - his tunes and rhythms are still singing in my soul. ~ a. 

Cam Salay has been a professional musician since 1994.  He won a Juno award in ’98 as a member of The Paperboys and continues to work as a solo performer as well as a duo called The Splinters with violinist Shannon Saunders.  Besides original music , Cam covers a wide range of artists including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Tom Waits, John Denver, Bruce Cockburn, Paul Simon and many others. The Splinters play Irish, east coast, folk, classic rock and more. As a solo performer, Cam sings and performs in several styles on banjo and guitar.  He's logged many hours on stages all across North America from festivals to concert halls to pubs, parties, conferences and weddings.
