Steamboat Mountain Music Festival early bird tickets on salePosted: March 28, 2012
Catch the juiciest worm!
Until April 15, a special best-buy early bird discount is offered for tickets to the first Steamboat Mountain Music Festival which will be held on July 7.
The best buy cost is just $25 for adults and $10 for youths for a full day of music from local and regional performers. After April 15 the cost climbs to $30 and $12.50 for a smaller early bird discount until June 7, and after that date it tops out at a still affordable $35 and $15.
The line-up will include something for practically everyone. The music covers a range of styles and genres, age groups, and instrumentation. Many local Columbia Valley musicians are involved, including: The Dry Gulch Ramblers, L8TE, Combo Akimbo, Marty and Eli Beingessner, Bob Benvenuti, and more. Two widely known regional groups featured are John Reischman and the Jay Birds, and Maria in the Shower. The festival website lists all the performers that have been confirmed so far, with a few additions still to come.
The festival’s concept is to feature local and regional talent in a full-day, affordable, family oriented outdoor festival. The festival site at Edgewater School is sheltered by Steamboat Mountain and looks out on the beautiful Columbia River wetlands. With proceeds from this event, the organizers will establish a bursary/scholarship for aspiring local musicians.
Tickets are available on the website through a PayPal link (purchasers do not need to have a PayPal account but must print their receipt to claim their tickets at the gate).
Several local business outlets have also agreed to sell festival tickets on a cash only basis: Pip’s Country Store in Edgewater, Meet on Higher Ground in Radium, One Hour Photo in Invermere, Skookum Service in Windermere, Smoking Waters Cafe in Fairmont, Brisco Store, Parson General Store, and Moon River Gallery in Golden.
If you need more information, or want to volunteer to help with the event, please call 250-347-9860. Be sure to watch for more Steamboat Mountain Music Festival news as the time approaches, and check the website for the full line-up – www.steamboatmtnmusicfest.ca .
