Murray McLauchlan in Kelowna Oct. 23. Tickets go on sale Friday

Murray McLauchlan is one of Canada’s most highly regarded singer/songwriters. Over a 40-year career, he has released 18 albums and been awarded 11 Junos.

He penned Farmer’s Song, Down by the Henry Moore, Whispering Rain and Sweeping the Spotlight Away, all now considered Canadian standards.

Murray is also a painter, an author, an actor, a radio host; he’s been bestowed an Honourary Doctor of Laws and appointed to The Order of Canada.

Murray last toured in support of his 2012 release Human Writes, but then took a break. Other interests prevailed and he restricted his touring to shows with Lunch At Allen’s, the supergroup he co-founded whose members also include Ian Thomas, Marc Jordan and Cindy Church.

But now Murray is on the road again. Here’s what he had to say in a press release: “As a songwriter I know that it’s not enough to sit in your kitchen and write. Your songs need to be heard. Music is a communicative art and if it isn’t brought in front of people there is no way to tell if that end has been met. I like to think of a concert tour as a kind of roving gallery to test your art and your ideas. I try to do my very best to make it worthwhile for folks to be there and to perhaps look at things in a new way when they leave.”

Reserved seating tickets for An Evening in Concert with Murray McLauchlan are $42 to $46, depending on facility fees and service charges, tax included. They go on sale Friday, June 26 at noon at or 250-762-5050.

Showtime at the Kelowna Community Theatre is 7:30 p.m. Oct. 23. For more info, pics & music clips, visit
