Published March 11, 2024

In a delightful turn of events for music enthusiasts, Sarah McLachlan is announced as a headliner for the upcoming Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival slated for July 26-28, 2024. The renowned Lilith Fair star was originally scheduled to perform at the festival in the previous year; however, the event had to be scrapped owing to smoky skies caused by Shuswap wildfires.

Anticipated Return

Kevin Tobin, the artistic director for the Salmon Arm Folk Music Society, expressed his delight over McLachlan's rescheduled performance. He commented on the eagerness of the community, including himself, to experience the resonance of her iconic songs during the festival, affirming the excitement that her presence and the diverse lineup of artists from around the globe are set to bring this year.

Festival's Commitment to Diversity

Tobin emphasized the festival's longstanding mission to showcase culturally rich and world-class music. He anticipates that the 32nd annual festival will surpass previous iterations in offering a compelling and impressive array of performances.

Stellar Lineup

While full details of the performer lineup have yet to be announced, the existing roster features notable names such as blues singer Amanda Marshall, the high-energy group Five Alarm Funk, and the soulful Oji-Cree artist Aysanabee. Additional acts mentioned are rising talent Begonia, the Nashville country artist Miko Marks, electro-folk duo Moontricks, jazz group Blue Moon Marquee, and the award-winning Lido Pimienta, boasting Colombian-Canadian roots. Anticipation is building as festival-goers prepare for a weekend rich with aural splendor, and tickets, including weekend passes, day passes, and camping sites, are already available for purchase.
