Golden kicking summer into high gear

Kicking Horse Culture in Golden is getting ready for a busy summer.

Summer is coming to the Golden and Kicking Horse Culture has put together a spectacular line up for summer shows in Spirit Square.

The season will kick off on June 20 when The Boom Booms come to town. The Boom Booms are a six-piece Latin-soul-funk-rock-reggae band, forged from friendships born on the school yards, soccer fields, cafe patios and eventually bars of East Vancouver.

On June 26 Faye Blais with Willhorse will be performing. Sudbury’s Faye Blais is spreading her new material around the globe, on a series of International Tours. Songwriting and personality are showcased beautifully through her impressive jazzy-bluesy folk style, on acoustic and electric guitars, and keys, with stunning, dynamic vocals.

July 6 will see John Reischman & the Jaybirds bring their blend of story-telling and side-show humour provides the backdrop to their studied performance of original songs, instrumentals, and newly arranged traditional material.

Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto will bring the sound of Columbia to Golden on July 11 followed up on July 19 by Tambura Rasa.

On July 25 the sound of Scotland invades  the square as Shooglenifty combines traditional tunes with contemporary dance rhythms.

August 1 sees Redeye in town with Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer playing on August 8.

The Columbia Valley Chamber Music Festival Concert will be hosting a special show on August 12 and the last show of the season will be on August 16 when Shuffle Demons bring their unique sound to Golden.
