As B.C. heads into phase three of re-opening, the Grist Mill and Gardens have opened up ticket sales for their upcoming live concert with Canadian award-winner, Valdy.

The tickets for July 15 concert are already starting to go quickly, and there isn’t an unlimited availability for them.

“We feel comfortable with a capacity of around 150 with people all spread out over the grass,” said general manager Chris Mathieson. “They’re selling fast, and its’sgood for the musicians, it’s good for us and it’s good for the community.”

Valdy is a multiple Juno Award-winning, Canadian folk musician with a career stretching back decades. In addition to his additional musical nominations, Valdy is an Order of Canada recipient.
