Salmon Arm ROOTSandBLUES
Comes Alive for 30th Annual Festival

Upcoming Events

Whitehorse With Special Guest, Jesse Northey

Ethereal folk . Space Cowboy twang. Psychedelic spaghetti western. Intergalactic blues grooves. Pop noir. Since their debut in 2011, Whitehorse has evolved from magnetic folk duo to full-blown rock band . Together, Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland’s searing Americana noir sensibility is distinguished by guitar wizardry (and instantly recognizable tone) and magnetic harmonies.
It’s an exciting year for Whitehorse and fans of Canadian music. From coast to coast, artists have spent the past two years creating and are hungry to get back on the road. We’re thrilled to welcome Whitehorse to Salmon Arm for a powerful night of musical storytelling.” – Kevin Tobin, Artistic Director Salmon Arm Folk Music Society
