Things will be heating up in Ferland Park this summer.

The District of Vanderhoof is hosting “Concert in the Park” on July 28th.  We will be kicking things off with an open mic period at 12:30 followed by the vocals and acoustic guitar of James Iannone.

Next up comes singer/songwriter Lowry Olafson who will be performing his original music along with brand new theme songs written for the arts council and the District of Vanderhoof!

At 4:00 we have Backroad performing a mix of classic and folk rock followed by the classic and contemporary rock of Buck Fever.

At 6:00 the Rusty Bucket Pluckers will be performing their mix of traditional and contemporary bluegrass.

Rosewood’s Diary is next on the bill with their original folk rock sound.  Hometown Hand Grenade will hit the stage at 8:00 with their high-energy rock followed by the eclectic mix of Sunshine Medallion.

Rock band Bonifyed will close the show fresh off their win at the Prince George Battle of the Bands.
