Okanagan Singer-Songwriter competition looks for new talent

The competition will celebrate its eighth anniversary this year

The Okanagan Singer-Songwriter Competition, formerly known as the Lake Country Open Mic Has Talent is celebrating its eighth anniversary.

“The annual contest was designed to spotlight singer-songwriters and give them the opportunity to win some studio recording time, as well as multiple performance opportunities. The multi-evening contest allows performers, ages 12 and over, to display their music for a panel of adjudicators, and experience the positive feedback from a live audience. The wealth of talent that has participated from throughout the Okanagan has been extremely rewarding,” said founder, Jennifer Boal.

The winner of the Okanagan Singer-Songwriter 2018 contest was Soulstice Creation, Tristan Charbonneau, who performed in the finals with Al Peterson, Bogdan Jahura, and other talented musicians.
