Prince George trio to perform at Boitanio Park

Songwriters from Prince George will perform including Noami Kavka, Danny Bell, Saltwater Hank

Performances in the Park returns to Boitanio Park on July 18th with a powerhouse trio of Songwriters from Prince George made up of Noami Kavka, Danny Bell, Saltwater Hank.

Historically speaking, many have come and gone before us without broad notice, despite having made significant impacts during their lives. These are the stories that Saltwater Hank sinks his teeth into, spinning them into timeless folk songs with a penchant for a jig.

Born in Prince Rupert, BC and a member of the Gitga’at community, Tsimshian folk artist Saltwater Hank resurrects stories of the land, loss and absurd circumstance and shines them through a sepia lens, witnessing ageless characters with hearts and lives on the line.

Naomi Kavka’s sound brings you into the depths of British Columbia, digging into what it means to live here, whether that’s contemplating the land, family, big trucks, love, northern weather, or movement. Kavka uses her hearty voice to echo her words deep into your soul.

She shows us, with her first full-length solo album, that she is not afraid to delve into deeply personal topics, and that is what makes this album so relatable. As a mainstay of the Prince George music scene, Kavka has shown her maturity and growth as an artist, creating a well-rounded debut album. and will have you singing along before you even know the words.
