Sloan wraps up the summer at Tinhorn Creek

Tinhorn Creek Vineyards in Oliver is wrapping up the summer with a concert by Canadian rockers Sloan on Sept. 8.

As part of their Canadian Concert Series, Tinhorn Creek Vineyards is wrapping up the summer with a concert by Canadian rockers Sloan on Sept. 8.

Sloan is four distinct songwriting voices — guitarists Patrick Pentland and Jay Ferguson, bassist Chris Murphy and drummer Andrew Scott — that nonetheless form a cohesive collective. Longtime Toronto scenesters who will always call Halifax home.

This fall, Sloan will embark on their first tour in celebration of one of their earlier catalogue albums, Twice Removed. Long heralded by critics as one of the best Canadian albums of all time, Twice Removed has been a fan favourite since its release in 1994. Sloan are working on a deluxe vinyl reissue of the album in September with a wealth of bonus material from the time.

Sloan are Muchmusic and rock radio regulars who — via their own murderecords label — maintain strong ties to their indie roots; money-city maniacs who have a soft spot for sweet sugar tunes; music vets who, instead of coasting on their cred, continue to challenge themselves with each record.

A shuttle service is available for the Tinhorn concert with pick-ups in Osoyoos, Penticton and Oliver for $15 return. Please call 1-888-484-6467 for more details and to purchase tickets to the concert which are $60. Pack a picnic, sip on some award-winning wine and dance the night away.
