MISS QUINCY (Vancouver / Taylor, BC)
Backed by an all-star band including local darlings Twin Peaks, Miss Quincy will be recording a group of songs written for and about the Peace River. This EP, recorded live during the concert, will be used to raise awareness and funds for the Treaty 8 First Nations court challenges against the Site C dam. This new collection of songs, throwing back to Miss Quincy’s country roots, explore the Peace Region with themes of home and connection.
TWIN PEAKS (Fort St. John, BC)
The dynamic duo of Lindsay Pratt and Naomi Shore are no strangers to the Peace Region. Born and raised right here in our beautiful valley, the music of Twin Peaks is eclectic, creative and clever. Small town wisdom, lively humour and tunes that immediately capture an audience.
GEOFF BERNER (Vancouver, BC)
Geoff Berner plays music that’s dirty, drunk, political and passionate. Due to his insightful humour, politically inflammatory compositions and showmanship, Berner has gained a cult following over the year in Canada and Europe. This will be his first time playing on the banks of the Peace River.
BLACK SPRUCE BOG (Prince George, BC)
Black Spruce Bog is a five piece roots revival band from Prince George, BC. They play songs that tell stories and get you on your feet dancing till the morning comes. With roots set deep in the northern soil, Black Spruce Bog brings a sound and tells the stories of people and the land they live on. The mossy floor of a spruce bog is not an easy place to thrive; but with the right mix of rhythm, rhyme, and ruckus, any sapling can find the light.
There is limited camping available on the property for RVs and tents at no extra cost. No hookups/water or campfires. Please contact us beforehand if you would like to camp onsite. Peace Island Park is also a 5 minute drive away.
