Mike is returning to Penticton from Tennessee with his new cd in hand (gospel / blues & more). 

‘Shine For All the People’ bears witness to the determination of putting one foot in front of the other and to the power of music to get you there. "I've discovered that falling is a divine thing," Mike adds. "It's part and parcel of being human. The important thing is to keep the faith and keep moving on and on. Daring to be courageous enough to share our deepest burdens with each other is the greatest gift we can give."

“Mike Farris is a soul man…way cool! When I saw him on TV the first time, even though I didn’t know who he was, I thought he was a star. When I heard his record, I knew he was.” MARTY STUART

“Mike Farris has enough heart, soul, and power to light up a city. He mixes up the elements and turns them into something new, beautiful, and uniquely his own.” BUDDY MILLER

“Out of the arms of defeat Mike Farris has done a victory lap….

He takes people who are hurting, who are broken, who think they are alone and through just the sound of his voice he lets them know that they’re not…that’s magic.” MARY GAUTHIER     

Do go to his site & watch the Documentary & listen………….A gem we are proud to host.

ShaneKoyczantypingShane Koyszan - SOLD OUT
December 19, Friday

Tickets $30

Shane Koyczan is an award winning Canadian Poet, Author and Performer. The world took notice of Shane Koyczan when his influential, anti-bullying, To This Day Project video went viral in early 2013 and has reached over 14 million views and counting. Powerfully engaging and authentic in attitude, Shane's explorations are relevant to our times in the way that Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen were to theirs. But unlike the musicians that he's often compared to, poets rarely infiltrate pop culture.  Shane emerges in a new wave of 21st century poetry that dares to belong to the people and speak directly to them in their own voice.
