OLIVER - The Tinhorn Creek Vineyard concert series returns to the Oliver winery’s outdoor amphitheatre in 2016 with its first concert at the end of May.

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Pernell Reichert and the Pernell Reichert Band kicks off the series Saturday, May 28, with his high energy, finger picked, acoustic guitar numbers, followed by Freeflow on June 25, according to a media release from the winery.

Freeflow’s soul, funk, reggae and hip-hop musicians have drawn comparisons to such bands as Sublime and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The Freeflow concert is June 25.

Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Daniel Wesley performs his blend of folk, reggae, blues and rock on July 23, while the August 27 concert features The Harpoonist and Axe Murderer, duo Shawn Hall and Matthew Rogers. Their energized primal blues genre is blues the way its meant to be played, unapologetic, rousing and rugged.

The season finale ends with the 54-40, already sold out, but there is a waiting list and you can have your name added to by calling 250-498-3743. Members of the band have been together for 30 years, turning out an impressive number of Canadian hit songs such as “Ocean Pearl,” “I go Blind,” and “One Day in Your Life.”

Gates open at 7 p.m. for 7:30 p.m. concert start for all venues.

The concert series also feature shuttle transportation to the winery from Osoyoos and Penticton.

Season’s passes to the concert series can be purchased for $125. See the Tinhorn Creek website for details.
