Talent, commitment, sacrifice, and attitude are four words that Kelowna-based artist Ben Klick lives by.
Klick has established himself as a guitar slinging, unique and interactive country musician.
Taking part in the 2015 Caetani Summer Music Series, Sunday, July 26 Klick recorded and released his debut EP in May, 2014. His songs have since been added to the emerging artist categories of local radio stations around the Okanagan.
“I write about what is true to me, friends, and family. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I’m extremely thankful and very blessed to have people in my life who believe in me and are behind my every move each step of the way,” he said.
Klick has been to and plans to revisit various country music capitals of the world, the most famous being Music City, Nashville, Tenn.
Performing at the well known Tootsies Orchid Lounge, Commodore Grill, and the Ryman Auditorium stage, Klick says his passion and dedication is only becoming stronger.
He has attended the B.C. Country Music Awards (BCCMAs), the Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMAs), received a 2013 Civic and Community Award nomination, and a 2014 Okanagan Arts Award.
Opening for Klick will be local singer Taylor Thomas.
Sunday’s concert happens on the outdoor stage at the Caetani Cultural Centre from 2 to 4 p.m.
The event takes place rain or shine, and a sprinkler will be set up to help everyone cool down if it’s a hot day.
The public is welcome to bring blankets, folding chairs, and a picnic. A selection of refreshments will be available for purchase and admission is by donation.
