And they likely never will, but local music fans can experience the next best thing on September 6th in Vernon as Vancouver’s Bonnie Kilroe presents her acclaimed one-woman show called Country Queens. A professional and award-winning entertainer for more than 15 years, the last 10 which she has dedicated to her one-woman act called Celebrity Imposters, Kilroe has been singing and strutting her stuff for local, national and international audiences.”

7:30 pm Mick Foley - Tales from the Wrestling Past

He's a three-time WWE champion, a hardcore legend and a member of the WWE Hall of Fame. Now, Mick Foley is unleashing the same trademark blend of wit and wisdom, wildness and warmth that made his books so beloved (five self-penned New York Times best-sellers) into his one-man spoken-word stage show, "Tales From Wrestling Past". Foley has wowed both crowds and critics alike with his unique stage show - leading "Chortle", the UK's most respected comedy source to write "Foley himself is charm personified - eloquent, funny and self-effacing" and the decidedly non-wrestling publication "Broadway Baby" to muse, "if you're interested at all in wrestling you'll love it; if you're not, you'll like it." Drawing from his 28 years of travel, Foley finds humor in the unlikeliest of places - the loss of an ear, the "dedication" of a porn-star working in a knee-brace, a United States President reciting his wrestling catch-phrase. Foley himself refers to "Tales From Wrestling Past" as "like being in the ring, without getting hurt" - a welcome distinction coming from a man who gave so much, to so many, for so long. Join the Hardcore Legend on his latest journey down life's highway - an eclectic trip into the surreal world of the days of wrestling past.

More about Cam ...
Cam has recently escaped the city to live in his new dwelling in the mountains with his sweetheart and new daughter- new start, new challenges. Ideas were trusted and built upon quickly, the unfamiliar was used as confidently as the familiar, pushing the conventions of what can still be called folk music back to where it should be- immediate and honest. ‘To Build a Fire’ is an album of leaving and new beginnings- not because anything is so bad perhaps but because things can always be better. If there is a chance, you have to look. Cam Penner’s last album, WCMA Nominated “Gypsy Summer” debuted at number 16 on the FOLK BILLBOARD Charts. It was featured along with a full interview on NPR’s ‘All Music Considered’ and toured the album through both Eastern & Western Canada, UK, Scotland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France.
