KHC's Summer Kicks concert series has proven to be a popular draw among locals over the previous years.

Summer Kicks schedule revealed

The mercury is rising and summer is the way. In Golden, that means it's about time for the popular Summer Kicks concert series.

The mercury is rising and summer is right around the corner. In Golden, that means it’s about time for the popular outdoor Summer Kicks concert series. Kicking Horse Culture has released its 2014 schedule and the lineup this year will once again feature a mix of local and touring artists.

One of the most anticipated shows is sure to be the first concert of the season when folk icon Valdy comes to town on June 18.

The Saltspring artist is well known for “Rock and Roll Song” but has also produced 18 albums throughout his lengthy 40+ year career. Valdy was brought back by popular demand after a previous show in Golden proved to be a favourite amongst locals.

Another artist that might be familiar to the local audience is Cranbrook’s The Good ol’ Goats. The goats are a young, high-energy folk group who took to the stage in Golden at the Masque Costume Ball earlier this year. The group formed just a few years ago in 2011 while attending Mt. Baker Secondary.

Other highlights of the 2014 lineup include Oh My Darling, The Strumbellas and Rick Scott.

The full schedule:

June 18: Valdy with LGES Line Dancers

June 24: The Golden Secondary School Friday Jam and Carl Trinkwon & The Masters of Nun

June 30: Holly & Jon with The Pickups

July 2: Rick Scott with Parson Jazz Cooperative
