PEAK Music Festival – MASKerade at Moir coming
Live music is back in Cranbrook with ‘PEAK’ Music Festival scheduled for every Saturday in September at Moir Park courtesy of the Government of Canada, Department of Canadian Heritage and the Fisher Peak Performing Artists Society, with support from the Key City Theatre and the City of Cranbrook.
Put on your coolest mask for the ‘MASKerade at Moir,’ a theme intended as a fun way to embrace face coverings in these pandemic times. Attendees can come in costume as well, as befits a festival and “masquerade.”
Pre-register for FREE tickets through www.keycitytheatre.com to attend one of the eight scheduled shows of top level local live music. Each Saturday will feature two shows a day starting at 2 p.m. and again at 5 p.m. There are only 50 free e-tickets for each show.
The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the cancellation of FPPAS’s usual spring and summer musical offerings, such as the Winter Ale and Summer Sounds concert series — both popular and a huge draw to the downtown Cranbrook core. But the Peak Music Fest is back!
Performances are as follows:
Saturday, September 12: The Parsons, followed by Brass Monkey. First show 2 to 4:30 p.m.; second show 5 – 7:15 p.m.
Saturday, September 19: RedGirl, followed by The Voodoo Rhythm Kings (pictured above). First show 2 to 4:30 p.m.; second show 5- 7:15 p.m.
September 26: Tall Timbers, followed by Pretty For The People. First show 2 to 4:30 p.m.; second show 5 – 7:15 p.m.
Those seeking to attend will pre-register for their e-ticket with the Key City Theatre. The ticket is good for one show only. Upon arrival at the site, attendees will be issued a wrist band, which must be worn through the show. Protocols are in place if a ticket holder is unable to come.
The festival has been arranged in accordance with all pandemic safety measures mandated by the City of Cranbrook and the Province of B.C.
Attendance is limited to 50 for each show, not including performers and organizers. These include separate entrances and exits, required and monitored social distancing, sitting only within one’s bubble, bringing your own food & non-alcoholic beverages and separation of the audience from the performers and organizers. Hand sanitizer will be available and mask-wearing is encouraged. Masks will be provided for those who don’t have one.
