Concert: Clanna Morna

May 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$30

Escape to one of the most charming concert venues in the South Okanagan and Similkameen. Nestled under ancient horse chestnut trees in our heritage gardens, the rustic Summer Kitchen stage features a lineup that transcends genres: these artists have won Juno Awards, Canadian Folk Music Awards and even a Grammy and have have an oversized impact on the Canadian music scene. As the sun sets behind rugged mountains of the Similkameen, the magic unfolds. Attendees spread blankets and lawn chairs, immersed in the soft glow of twinkling lights and paper lanterns. Our concerts celebrate a range of acoustic genres–folk, roots, Celtic, Bluegrass and even acoustic blues. Talented artists weave together traditional melodies (with roots as deep as our venue) and thoughtful original compositions. Let the music carry you away–where history whispers and melodies linger.

Hailing from the occupied territories of the Songhees, Esquimalt, and WSÁNEĆ nations in Victoria, BC, Clanna Morna brings a fresh take on Celtic Traditional music to the west coast. Their sound is rooted in the traditional Irish, Scottish, and English music that many love, and features carefully crafted arrangements, rhythmic spirited energy, and captivating storytelling. Comprised of an ensemble of multi-instrumentalists, their collective musicianship and attention to detail contribute to a unique audience experience featuring both familiar and lesser-known folk ballads and tunes. With over a decade of arranging and performing together, Clanna Morna has toured extensively, delivering over 200 performances in their first two years as an ensemble. Their concerts are a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation, leaving audiences spellbound. From high-energy instrumentals to slow ballads, drinking songs to sea shanties, Clanna Morna brings a unique west coast influence to Celtic & English folk. The band pays tribute to and takes inspiration from legendary predecessors including The Dubliners, The Pogues, The Bothy Band, Planxty, and The Clancy Brothers.
