Shuswap band Turtle Valley is the next Valley First Music in the Park concert taking place in Armstrong’s Memorial Park Friday, June 26.
Named after a small valley located south of Chase, Turtle Valley got its start as the house band at the small festival Turtlestock, and plays a mellow, yet lively combination of classic rock and country, from CCR to Blue Rodeo, Willie Nelson to Garth Brooks, early Beatles to classic Elvis.
There’s no karaoke backtracks, no synthesized loops, no irritating drum machine. Turtle Valley gives the audience easy-listening songs that often form the soundtrack of their lives and will make them want to get up and dance.
Valley First sponsors the Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce Music in the Park series June 19 to Aug. 28 in Memorial Park, Armstrong. As well as presenting the series, Valley First will also be promoting hunger awareness through its Feed the Valley program each evening.
Support the Feed the Valley program by bringing a non-perishable food item to Music in the Park or make a donation at any Valley First branch, online at www.valleyfirst.com or at the Food Banks B.C. online donations portal.
