The momentum is building for this year’s anticipated 25th Annual Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival and Canada 150 Celebration.

Roots and Blues early-bird tickets are on sale and organizers sent out a promotional video this month to get music lovers excited for the annual event, running Aug. 18 to 20. 2017 at the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds.

“The festival has a lot to celebrate in August 2017. Twenty-five years is quite an accomplishment and says a lot about the audiences thru the years,” said artistic director Peter North.

“It is also our nation’s 150th birthday. Programming will reflect the deep pool of talent we have to draw on and we want to share as many Canadiana roots music traditions as possible.
