WEST KELOWNA –– The Summer Concert Series at Mission Hill Winery continues to heat up with the addition of internationally acclaimed musicians Lyle Lovett, July 12, and Chris Isaak, July 27.

Following close on the heels of award-winning jazz artist Chris Botti’s June 24 performance, both concerts mark the artists’ only B.C. show dates this summer.

The experience of an evening performance under the open sky at the Mission Hill amphitheatre is unforgettable. There is something extraordinarily special for both the artist and the audience at this intimate hilltop location which seats 1,000 guests –– a wonderful outdoor concert experience reminiscent of the grand performances staged at the Arena di Verona, one of Italy’s historic open-air Roman amphitheatres.

With majestic mountains and the scenic lake creating the perfect backdrop, guests will enjoy an evening of music, wine and cuisine at one of Canada’s premiere concert locations.

Mission Hill is delighted to host Lovett’s first appearance in Okanagan wine country. After four Grammy Awards and 14 albums, Lovett is one of the all-time great singer/songwriters whose unique voice soars effortlessly through a repertoire of country, folk, blues and even gospel music. What emerges is a picture of a smart and complicated man, whose good humour and generosity of spirit have generated songs as brilliant and double-sided as If I Had A Boat, God Will, and If I Were the Man You Wanted.

Back by popular demand for his second consecutive year, Isaak will once again charm Okanagan audiences with his legendary live show.

Isaak became a hit on the Billboard charts and earned widespread fame with his album, Heart Shaped World. An accomplished musician and actor, last year proved to be an unforgettable performance leaving concert goers ready for more. This year Isaak tours in support of his recently released album Beyond the Sun.

Tickets for all concerts are now available at SelectYourTickets.com and start at $99 each. In addition, Mission Hill is offering three experiential packages to enable fans and guests to enjoy an unforgettable evening of wine, food and song.
