Performances in the Park at Boitanio Park this Thursday will present a sneak preview of what festival goers can expect at Arts on the Fly taking place in Horsefly July 10 and 11.
The park lineup will feature four outstanding performers offering up three hours of great music beginning at 5 p.m.
Vancouver-based Leathan Milne creates a refreshing jolt of humble, soft spoken honesty that is quite unique to the folk music world of which he has woven himself, his bio says.
Originally from Alberta, Milne has been performing for a decade throughout Canada and the U.S and will be performing at Arts on the Fly at 3 p.m Saturday.
Don Alder — an award-winning acoustic guitarist — returns to his hometown for the second year in a row for Performances in the Park.
Audiences can expect his dazzling guitar playing, featuring songs from his new album Armed and Dangerous.
With a voice like a ‘shady tree on a hot summer’s day’, Saskatchewan’s Stephen Palmer will share a joyous blending of country, folk, gospel and blues.
While B.C.-born singer/songwriter Jasper Sloan Yip will perform some of his experimental folk-rock, garnered from the latest album he is working on throughout 2015.
Yip will also play Horsefly at 5 p.m. on Saturday.
There will again be a farmers’ and vendors’ mini-market at the park featuring fresh produce and products from Road’s End Vegetable Company, Puddle Produce, Windy Creek Farm, Carla Crogan, Walk-Rite Shoes, BFF Fashions, Paper Airplane, Piece of Home, Barefoot Books and more.
