Come for food, friendly hospitality and featured music, take the opportunity to be part of bringing our town together - and skip the dishes. 

 

Our featured performer: Folksinger-songwriter Larry Green is a bit John Denver, a slice of James Taylor, a teaspoon of Jim Croce and the guitar fingerpicking of a wannabe Tommy Emmanuel. Larry says he always wanted to sing harmony backups for the Eagles and The Beach Boys, but never had the right hairstyle! His warm and inviting vocal style will bring our whole evening together.

Our Featured Artist:  Sandra Kunz’s arrival in the Okanagan three years ago caused a ripple effect in her life that brought forth song. Her lifelong love of singing came together in a new and powerful way with a deepening of her folk, pop and country roots. As she puts it, she actually took up the guitar to support her singing habit. She writes music about self-discovery and self-awareness, encouraging the listener to trust and give expression to their authentic self. She is convinced that, when we share our gifts, we make the world a better place for all.

 

She is known for taking 80’s and 90’s pop tunes and giving them a make-over with a folkie flare. Sandra is influenced by a variety of genres and artists such as Chris Smithers, Joni Mitchell, Adele, the Cranberries, the Be Good Tanya's, David Bowie, Chris Isaak, Shannon McNally, Frazey Ford, Martin Sexton. It will be an intimate and diverse evening of music.

Audiences from Reno, Nevada to Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, people aged 9 to 99 have been regaled by this local legend, who honed his craft largely while driving patrons of the Summerland HandyDart bus. As he did while transporting travellers, he will transport us with tales like The Shooting of Dan McGrew, Yertle the Turtle, The Wagon Wheel Mystery and others.

 

Also an avid pianist, Grant will entertain us while we eat, with instrumental standards. A not-too-spooky evening, but certainly a night of shivers…
