Lake Cowichan’s Jan Matthews in Overdrive rocked Centennial Park at the most recent Music in the Lake: Summer Nights concert

Music in the Lake: Summer Nights coming to a close

The final performance will feature the Steady Eddies, the Medford Choir and the Good Time Band.

Music in the Lake: Summer Nights, Lake Cowichan’s annual outdoor concert series, will be putting on its finale this weekend, but organizers are hoping to continue bringing music to the lake with Winter Nights, their monthly series which is planned to take place at the 50 Plus Activity Centre from October to April.

The final Summer Night, which takes place this Saturday (August 29) will feature performances by the Steady Eddies, the Medford Choir and the Good Time Band, along with a food concession and ice cream vendor.

Though Summer Nights switched to a biweekly schedule this year due to a shortage of funding and volunteers, organizer Elvin Hedden said that the series has been as popular as ever, with the most recent event attracting a crowd of 150.

Hedden said that he and his team are planning on bringing Summer Nights back next year, though they have yet to decide if it will continue with the new format or go back to being a weekly affair.

The free event also collects donations in support of several non-profit community groups, including the Cowichan Lake District Seniors’ Association, the Kaatza Station Museum, LC Animal Rescue, Kaatza Art Group and Radio Cowichan.
