Tensouljers headlines Lytton Festival

The 11th annual Lytton River Festival this weekend promises to be the best ever.

The Lytton River Festival is excited that one of Canada’s top ranked bands is coming to town on Labour Day weekend.

Tensouljers, a band that comprises three horn players, five vocalists, and the best rhythm section in the city of Vancouver, performs on Saturday night at the Lytton festival.

Their musical excellence and incredible sound inspire their famously lively, energetic stage show. The bands chemistry is hugely apparent during performances and their repertoire is adapted to their audience.

Much more than music, the three-day Lytton festival includes a many other attractions and venues.

Also new in 2014, the festival’s 11th year, is Circus West, a group of young performing artists from Vancouver. Their two onstage performances on Saturday are followed by short workshops where children, youth and adults are taught some basic performing skills.

Five live bands perform on Friday and Saturday, a farmer’s market, vendors, children’s climbing wall, and children’s kayaking in the local swimming pool are all part of the fun.

It’s difficult to choose a highlight but for many folks, the Sunday Pow Wow is the crowning activity.  Drum groups and dancers perform and entertain and compete in colourful costumes. A dramatic spectacle

The best part? Everything is free! Generous sponsors have helped to create a festival described as “one of the best small town festivals in British Columbia”.
