One of North American’s premier Neil Diamond tribute artists will be performing at the 65th annual Penticton Peach Festival.

Stan Foster will bring his A Diamond Evening show to the main stage at Peachfest on Aug. 9.

Foster has thrilled crowds throughout Western Canada for the past four decades. His career highlights include A Diamond Evening concert with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and a half-time performance at the Grey Cup. He has shared the stage with numerous music legends including Kenny Rogers, B.J. Thomas and Tommy James.

Peach Festival entertainment director Bill Kolter said Foster’s voice sounds just like Neil Diamond.

“When he is on stage, you would swear it is Neil Diamond,” said Kolter. “Stan puts on a tremendous show.”

A Diamond Evening includes songs from every era including the early chart toppers, the unforgettable ballads, the foot-stomping hits and the movie sound track marvels.

Penticton Peach Festival is scheduled Aug. 8 to 12. For more information visit www.peachfest.com.
