FestivalSeekers Musician Monthly #BuyBasin special
Whenever our band is on the road, I love to connect with locals at each stop we make and discover new local artists, shops and cafes. It’s part of the adventure of touring. Of course, there haven’t been many such opportunities in the last year so we’ve taken to finding other ways to discover BC creatives from home. This is where the #BuyBasin Festival comes in.
After an incredibly successful and uplifting #BuyBasin Festival in April 2021, the festival is back for a second fall edition. For those of you new to the festival, it is an amazing virtual festival where businesses from around the Columbia Basin go LIVE on their Facebook or Instagram pages and share the passion for their businesses!
Each day also features a musical performance from an incredible local artist, and I’m here to announce the performer lineup of this years #BuyBasin Festival!
Go to the festival lineup to find links to each performer’s social channel, and the rest of the festival program.
Heather Gemmell, Kimberley BC (Genre: Folk)
Gemmell, the first #BuyBasin featured performer went live Oct 18 - here she is, performing LIVE on Facebook.
Make sure to tune in to the Festival for all the performances!
