This year’s series features:

July 16 – 100 Mile House

July 20 – Mae Moore

A singer-songwriter from the Gulf Islands with a string of Canadian top-20’s and several Juno nominations in the last two decades.

Aug 9 – Rakish Angles

A talented quartet from the Sunshine Coast with fiddle, mandolin, upright bass and guitar. Everything old is new again.

Aug 15 – Jeff Warner

A true legend in American traditional music from New Hampshire that we’re lucky enough to snag before he goes to the Princeton Traditional Music Festival.

Aug 30 – Valdy

A Canadian folk legend with 2 Junos wins and 7 more nominations, what else needs be said?

Our favourite prairie balladeer is back for a second season after traveling the world, this time with his band.

More information on each artist is available on the Grist Mill website.

Again this year, the wineries of the Similkameen Wineries Association will be selling their wines by the glass and bottle at each show. Also, the Grist Mill’s Executive Chef, Natasha Shooten, will be preparing delicious picnic-style dinners beginning at 5:30 p.m. for each show, while doors open for non-dinner patrons at 6:30 p.m. and concerts start at 7 p.m.

Patrons are encouraged to bring their own blankets and low-rise beach chairs; higher lawn chairs are also welcome, but they may be asked to sit in the back to avoid obstructing the view of others.

 

Tickets for all shows are available for sale at the Grist Mill front desk ($15 per show), on the website atwww.oldgristmill.ca or by phone at 250-499-2888 during business hours (daily 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.). Some tickets may also be available at the door for each show, depending on availability, but a small surcharge will apply.
