Kind Words

I’ve always loved music, but getting to hear the stories behind some of my favorite songs was a once in a lifetime experience I will remember forever.

Alice M. - Kelowna, BC

Like a Nova Scotian kitchen party, we were intimately engaged by the musicians. They were skilled entertainers who told amazing stories, all while performing chart-topping songs. One of the best musical events I have ever attended. We’ve already got our 2021 festival passes!

Val T. - Naramata, BC

I was blown away by 97 South Song Sessions! We were as equally entertained with the stories behind the music as the music itself. An experience that had us laughing and enjoying #1 hit songs in a whole new way. Can’t wait for the 2021 festival!

KerriJo S. - Sylvan Lake, AB

My wife and I attended the first 97 South Song Sessions in 2019. The setting was great! The stories were entertaining and it was fantastic to learn the background of the hit songs we heard throughout the night. An enjoyable experience with great people and great music. Looking forward to attending again.
