Alan K. Parsons in concert with The Wheat in the Barley

Local artist Alan K. Parsons performed in concert with The Wheat in the Barley on Saturday, July 26.

About 70 residents enjoyed an evening of various music including Celtic, Slavic, French Canadian, Yiddish, Cajun, Country, Rock and Blues at the Riverside Centre last Saturday evening.

Local artist Alan K. Parsons performed in concert with The Wheat in the Barley, a group out of Vancouver who performed in Princeton earlier this year.

The crowd enjoyed the show greatly, apparent from the rousing bouts of applause with the end of each song, especially with the Nashville swagger and sound of Alan K. Parsons.

Mickey Hovan, member of The Wheat in the Barley, paused the show to say how much fun they were having and to ask, “Was everyone in Princeton as nice as Alan K. Parsons?”

Emcee for the evening, George Elliott answered by saying, “Pretty much.”

Parsons and Elliot ended the evening by drawing for door prizes donated by locals and businesses.

Financial support and door prizes were received from; Princeton Septic Service, the Similkameen Newsleader, Trisha Coyne Music, Sweet Sensations Flowers & Gifts, Similkameen Soap, Princeton Community Arts Council, Alan K. Parsons and family, Golden Hills Ice Cream & Coffee, Jessica McIvor (Jessie’s Arts) and Nekcessories – Designs by Debbie.
