Kim Mitchell gives a shoutout to the Penticton Peach Festival which he is headlining

Kim Mitchell has sent a peach of a video message for those attending the Penticton Peach Festival, which he is headlining.

The Penticton Peach Festival kicks off on Thursday, Aug. 8 with Mitchell on the Peters Bros. Construction stage.

Mitchell has lived by his personal mission statement found in the lyrics of his hit song Rock N Roll Duty for decades. It’s not about the fame, nor gold and platinum on the wall (both of which he has achieved) rather it is for the love of music.
