FRIDAY JULY 23 | With Shawna Palmer
Shawna Palmer is a full time musician from Kamloops. She is one of 3 lead singers in a well known local band called “Tennessee Walker”. Throughout her youth and adult life she pursued a career as a professional singer. Between 2012 and 2018 Shawna competed in many vocal contests including iSing, Karaoke World Championship and Road to Rockin’ River. She travelled Canada with these competitions and as far as Asia to represent Canada and place 3rd against 32 other countries. Shawna’s very eclectic taste in music gives her that country sound with a bit of rock and grit underneath. Her influences include Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Patsy Cline, Alanis Morisette, Adele and Lady Gaga. From powerful ballads to toe tapping originals you’ll be thoroughly entertained all night.
Sabrina Weeks and Mike Hilliard are very diverse entertainers. You can see them heading one of several bands or performing as one of their duo acts. But one thing that remains a constant with these two is their fabulous musicality, quirky sense of humour and range of repotior. Sabrina’s voice is a ménage à quatre between KD Lang, Etta James, Karen Carpenter and Ella Fitzgerald writhing beneath satin sheets. Add Mike Hilliard who is by far one of the most insanely talented guitar players in Canada and you have something exciting and fresh. As of late, Sabrina and Mike have been performing aboard Princess Cruise Ships thrilling audiences from all over the world. When attending a Sabrina Weeks and Mike Hillard performance, expect to laugh out loud, dance uncontrollably, sing along, loud and proud, and get lost in a series of unforgettable moments.
FRIDAY AUGUST 6 | WITH MARGIT SKY PROJECT
Raised in Toronto and then Vancouver, Margit grew up listening to rock, folk, and classical music. Her parents were huge music lovers. After moving to Kamloops in 1992, she built a successful career as a local musician and hasn’t looked back since her first gig at Sun Peaks Resort.
Rod started playing guitar at age 10 in Vancouver. He was playing in bands at age 16 and hasn’t stopped. Rod was a huge part of the indigenous band, Waskesu in the mid 1990’s. They had the pleasure of playing for the Prime Minister and playing at the Commonwealth Games in Victoria along with Susan Aglukark and Kashtin. They also had quite a few appearances on Much Music.
Rod’s First Nations name is Little Sky. The decision was made to combine names for the band. Put these two together and you have the Margit Sky Project.
Mesmerizing audiences from all over the world with her unique and gentle style,
West Coast Canadian Jana Seale has been a featured guest artist aboard luxury cruise lines since April 2006.
And, making her home in Chilliwack BC, she can be found performing throughout Southern BC, and into Washington State, when not ‘temporarily lost at sea’…
Jana’s evocative delivery returns to the roots of the solo performer, reminiscent of Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez and the coffeehouses of times gone by… Inspired by open tuning troubadour Nanci Griffith, and Eva Cassidy’s simply elegant guitar arrangements, Jana performs with warm, understated fingerstyle guitar. But it’s her multifaceted voice that captivates her audience night after night.
A songlist of well over 400 songs includes acoustic singer/songwriters from the 60’s to today, and a variety of Pop, Soft Rock, Country, Celtic and Jazz… She is equally comfortable providing ambient background music for upscale restaurants and gala events, or as an interactive coffeehouse request act. Jana’s five Cds have travelled home with fans around the world – and tracks from both 2006’s debut ‘Jana Seale’ and 2008’s ‘temporarily lost at sea’ have played on Canadian radio stations including CBC Vancouver, and Edmonton’s CKUA.
