Outdoor music at Lake Cowichan’s Central Park to continue

A large turnout for the Thursday, July 28, Music in the Lake event at Lake Cowichan’s Central Park has inspired organizers to host a similar such event in August.

A large turnout for the Thursday, July 28, Music in the Lake event at Lake Cowichan’s Central Park has inspired organizers to host a similar such event in August.

“It will be held at the bandshell in Central Park as in July, but an hour earlier,” organizer David Lowther wrote, in a message to the Gazette. “We learn from experience.”

As such, the show will begin at 6 p.m., Thursday, August 25, with an open stage.

The first headlining performer will be Beverly McKeen; a local performer whom Lowther booked while in the checkout line at the Country Grocer.

McKeen will perform at 7 p.m.

The Pelta Tiller Duo will also perform, beginning at 8 p.m. They’ve been described as “a sort of gypsy jazz.”

“Feel free to spread the word. We can easily fit more into the park,” Lowther wrote.

These two outdoor concerts have been part of the monthly Music in the Lake event, which usually takes place in the Lower Centennial Hall.

Local radio station CICV 98.7-FM records and broadcasts the shows over the airwaves Sundays at 10 a.m., and Wednesdays at 4 p.m.
