North Shore and Pat Brett play the White­cap, Thurs­day,

A trip to down­town Kenora will be mu­sic to the ears on Thurs­day, July 12.

Two lo­cal per­form­ers will take to the stage at the White­cap Pav­il­ion for the lat­est en­try of the 2018 Kenora Win­kler Har­bourfront Con­cert Series. Folk mu­si­cian Pat Brett will open the evening with North Shore fol­low­ing with an acous­tic brand of their usual pop-rock style.

The free con­cert be­gins at 7 p.m.

It’s the fourth con­cert in the 2018 con­cert series, or­ga­nized and co­or­di­nated for the sec­ond sum­mer by Steven Wolfe. The first three con­cert events have ex­ceeded ex­pec­ta­tions so far.

“They’ve all been re­ally well done by the per­form­ers. We’ve been re­ally im­pressed and thank­ful for the com­mu­nity sup­port with the con­certs,” said Wolfe.

Though the con­certs are es­sen­tially free, Wolfe said they’re tak­ing up a sil­ver col­lec­tion at the door which is rein­vested into the Kenora Win­kler Har­bourfront Con­cert Series cof­fers and used to pay ex­penses. A cou­ple of the con­certs are tick­eted events, in­clud­ing the July 7 Dave Law­ton Band per­for­mance which was a fundraiser for the Lake of the Woods District Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion.

Wolfe said he took over co­or­di­nat­ing the sum­mer con­cert series in 2017 in or­der to bring more mu­si­cal tal­ent to Kenora and to help bring out the tal­ents of peo­ple al­ready within the com­mu­nity.

“To em­brace the live mu­sic scene in Kenora,” said Wolfe. “There’s a lot of live mu­sic events go­ing on but this brings the com­mu­nity, as well as sev­eral vis­i­tors, out to the down­town core. It brings some­thing to our com­mu­nity that is es­sen­tially free of charge.”

Wolfe added the con­certs are mainly open to all ages and en­cour­ages fam­i­lies to get in­volved in the Kenora arts scene.

The com­bi­na­tion of Pat Brett and North Shore will in­tro­duce dif­fer­ent mu­si­cal styles to the com­mu­nity Thurs­day night.

“Pat Brett will be per­form­ing with his gui­tar in a singer­song­writer style and then North Shore will per­form an acous­tic set,” said Wolfe. “It’ll be a good di­verse style of mu­sic which should be very in­ter­est­ing and en­gag­ing.”

Free con­certs at the White­cap Pav­il­ion will also be held on July 19 (Reilly Scott & Ryan Van Bel­leghem) and July 25 Turn­ing Point, for­merly Freaky Green Bee­tles. The next tick­eted event is Au­gust 7 at Knox United Church as Fi­esta Fla­menco per­forms. Tick­ets are avail­able at John­son’s Phar­macy.
