"Folkanagan" music with The Gala Vanters

Shane Swift and Luke Whittall, two of the Okanagan’s most gifted guitarists and vocalists, are releasing their debut recording as The Gala Vanters and are capping it with a concert at Medici’s Gelateria & Coffee House in Oliver on Friday night, June 1st.

Luke, a locally grown artist, has been a mainstay talent in the Oliver music scene in recent years. Shane Swift left a hot Vancouver band behind and moved his family and his music to the Okanagan several years ago. Once tuned into one another’s music, the sweet guitars riffs and folk harmonies started to flow. They like to refer to their sound as ‘Folkanagan”. The Gala Vanters will capture your heart, fill your ears with sweet sounds and your imagination with rich tales and perspectives of this beautiful valley we live in.

Friday night, June 1st. Doors open at 6:30, concert starts at 7:50  and tickets are $20 at Medici’s and Beyond Bliss in Oliver and at Dolci Deli in Osoyoos….Don’t Miss This!!
