The West Kootenay EcoSociety is bringing a bit of the summer fun of Nelson’s outdoor markets into the heart of the winter.

This coming Thursday, January 30 at Spiritbar, the EcoSociety will host Market Music Night. EcoSociety markets director, Jesse R. Woodward, has put together a line-up that will sure to please.

Starting at 8:30 p.m., Heartsong, featuring Morien Jones, will take the stage. Jones is a Cottonwood Market favourite with his upbeat and fun songs about love, relationships and the beauty of the Kootenays.

At 9:45 p.m. the dynamic duo of Rob Funk and Brian Rosen will add their sweet harmonies and folk funk vibe to the night.

Finally, from 11 p.m. to midnight DJ Ginger, of the famed Meow Mix DJ collective, will spin everyone into a pleasant and balmy groove.

“My original idea was to try to bring back a little bit of the fun and warmth of the summer outdoor markets,” Woodward said.

“There is still five months to go until the first Cottonwood Market opens so this event will be a chance to get a taste of the joy and excitement that comes with being at the Nelson summer outdoor markets.”

The event is an EcoSociety fundraiser. A suggested $10 donation can be made at the door.
