Locals will know that for many years every summer, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society has hosted an outdoor concert series – Music at the Cannery. Concert-goers gather on our outdoor Tank Deck (or inside the historic cannery if the weather doesn’t cooperate) to enjoy a variety of music genres from local musicians.
This year, under current circumstances, we are unable to bring our outdoor concerts to the Tank Deck, so we will be sharing the line-up of incredible local talent that we were expecting to welcome. All of the musicians had been booked earlier in the year, and all were very understanding of the situation. So throughout the summer, we’ll share how to enjoy their music online.
July 10th – The opening group for our 2020 concert series was planned to be one of our series’ returning favourites, the Irish Wakers. The have been a staple at Music at the Cannery for many years and we were excited to have them back. Check out their website and relive some past concerts on their YouTube page.
July 17th – Tyler Bartfai with Austin Parise were planning to travel from Powell River to join us for the first time this summer! We were looking forward to Tyler sharing music from his debut EP, Can You Tell, that was released in May 2019. He will be working on new music shortly and you can follow along on his website, Facebook, and Instagram.
