Pynestock boasts a lineup of almost a dozen musicians over the two-night event.

Pynestock showcases local talent

Summerlude kicks off on July 18, 19 with two nights of music performances.

Summerlude wouldn’t be complete without a heaping helping of live musical acts, and that’s why the 8th annual Pynestock Concert is offering valley veterans and visitors alike a chance to hear some of the best local talent around.

For two nights at Pynelogs Cultural Centre — July 18 and 19 — concert-goers will be serenaded with the sweet tones of acts such as Daze of Grace, Codi Holliwick, Bob Benvenuti Steve O’Shaunessy and Emily Molloy.

For Pynelogs manager Jami Scheffer, her favourite part of the event is seeing the new partnerships that forms between participating musicians.

“What I really love is watching the musicians interact together,” Scheffer said. “At the end of the two days there are new relationships between musicians, they start jamming together, or forming a band with people they had never met before — I love that.”

Pynestock started as a place for local musicians to share their talents with the public and thanks to the overwhelming success of the event (Scheffer said it has sold out every year), the decision was made to add a second night of music to accommodate as many spectators as possible. Also made possible by the addition of a second night of music was each artist being paid an honourarium. As concert organization costs are generally covered by the first night, a second night of performances allows Pynestock to support the musicians who had previously acted on a totally volunteer basis.

Tickets are available at The Book Bar and Pynelogs for $12. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. both nights with the concert starting at 8 p.m., and the venue is licensed.  For more information, call Pynelogs at 250 342 4423. A big thanks also goes out to the sponsors — Gerry’s Gelati, Peppi’s Pizza and PixelPlanet —  for making the event possible each year.
