The Sarah Burton Band and Carnival Band are on the playbill this Thursday evening for Performances in the Park in Boitanio Park.
Sarah Burton’s playful soul has found its home in music through three diverse albums, and countless ups and downs while traversing the globe.
On her new album Make Your Own Bed, Sarah doesn’t just embrace indie-pop into her musical inventory, but returns to her first inspiration; the piano.
The Carnival Band is an activist community band based in Vancouver’s Commercial Drive neighbourhood.
Last year they released a digital EP, travelled to Boston and Austin, U.S. and performed at TEDx Vancouver. In 2015 the band is stoked on travels though B.C., more recording, and filling the streets with music!
Concerts run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. but visitors can set up early to visit exhibits by the Farmers’ and Vendors’ Mini-Markets that open starting at 5 p.m.
Products will be available from Road’s End Vegetable Company, Puddle Produce, Windy Creek Farm, Walk-Rite Shoes, BFF Fashions, Paper Airplane, Piece of Home, Barefoot Books, Cariboo Fruit Stand, Soul Food, Earth Dance, Cody’s Bannock Smashin’ Smoothies and Taylor Made Cakes and more vendors. The Community Arts Council of Williams Lake also hosts a Kids’ Arts Corner from 6 to 8 p.m.
Right after Performances in the Park there will be a special Safety Meeting summer concert with the Madeline Tasquin Band at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre. Tickets are $15 at Red Shreds in advance.
