Well into its fifth year, performers in the Lake Country Open Mic Has Talent contest have one more night to wow the judges in the original singer-songwriting competition.
This Thursday another set of performances will take place at the Lake Country Coffee House as musicians from around the Okanagan gather for a chance at furthering their careers.
“With only one more competition night coming up on April 7, the excitement is building towards the final event which will be held at the Creekside Theatre on Friday, April 22,” said Jennifer Boal, contest founder and organizer.
the contest began Feb. 18 when Douglas Trask, Adrian Rossouw, Tyler Wiebe, David Wylie, Shaedon Hawse, and Hugh Spinney performed for the captivated audience at the Lake
Country Coffee House. The showcase of talent continued on March 10 with Dale Ziech, Jerry Niemi, Mark Rosal, Eric Hiltz, Lucy Blu, and Nolan Penner, who provided a solid three hour night of quality entertainment.
