Norm Dove, owner of Echo Valley Ranch and Spa, is inviting folks to various events taking place this August and September.

“Come and enjoy a special evening here and get to know us, and who and where we are,” Dove says.

On Wednesday, Aug. 22, at 7:30 p.m. San Francisco’s Jeff Greenwald, book author and journalist for the Smithsonian and National Geographic, will bring his Strange Travel Suggestions one-man stage show to Echo Valley Ranch and Spa, located an hour west of Clinton. Though the show is free, reservations must be made in advance by calling 1-800-253-8831.

“We’d like these events to allow our neighbours in the Interior to get to know us,” Dove says, “and think about planning a vacation here in the future for any upcoming special occasions like birthdays, weddings and anniversaries.”

On Saturday, Sept. 1, the ranch will host a tour, dinner and concert.

Musicians Saskia and Darrell will perform at the Baan Thai Pavilion, an Asian-themed palace located at the ranch.

After many years touring with top musicians like Gary Fjellgaard and Valdy, the duo now performs folk, western, bluegrass and Celtic-influenced material. They play 200 dates a year at folk festivals, fall fairs, rodeos, country halls and dinner theatres in Canada and all over Europe.

The evening opens with a personal guided tour of the ranch by Dove at 5 p.m., a chef-catered sumptuous barbecue dinner at 6:30 p.m., and the concert from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. The cost is $12 for the concerts only, or $60 for the tour, dinner and show.

Overnight accommodations are available (call the number above for more info).

Saskia and Darrell will also return for another dinner concert on Saturday, Sept. 7 at Echo Valley.
