The show, to be held at 7:30 p.m. at SAGA Public Art Gallery will be hosted by tried and true singers, songwriters and performers Richard Owings and Murray MacDonald of One Camel Short.

The pair have been performing and recording together for several years and their show is an eclectic mix of musical styles and genres guaranteed to get your toes tapping.

This, the third showcase in the fall series, will also include the incredible talent of several young, up-and-coming artists.

Shuswap Idol singer-songwriter winner Jesse Mast, Megan Abel, the winner of the “Songs for the Shuswap” junior category and a finalist in the “Our Kids Have Talent” contest, and performing songwriter and recording artist Aimie Laws will add their flair and flavour to the mix.

Hopkins is excited to be presenting these young performers and designed the singer-songwriter series to showcase the wealth of talented people creating and performing their own music. The intimate gallery setting adds a fun, house party feel.
