Margit Sky Project has lined up artists from the Kamloops Symphony and the Sage Hills Drummers and Dancers for a show in mid-August at the Sagebrush Theater

A concert aimed at bringing together Indigenous and non-Indigenous people will be presented at the Sagebrush Theater in mid-August, and residential school survivors will receive a portion of the proceeds.

Margit Gossage and Rod Bandura of local band The Margit Sky Project announced the gig on Thursday July 7.

“I’ve played so many great shows, but this one is different. We intentionally bring together Indigenous and non-Indigenous sisters and brothers to perform together,” Bandura said.

Bandura, whose First Nations name is Little Sky, toured extensively with Gossage, opening for notable artists like Burton Cummings, Trooper, Barney Bentall and Kevin Costner’s band Modern West.

For the People – A Cultural Experience, will feature members of the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra and performers from the Sage Hills Drummers and Dancers.

Bandura said he wanted to tell his stories, and the stories of those who were lost, through his music.

Tickets for the show are $49, available at the Kamloops Live Box Office. A portion of the ticket proceeds will go to the Indian Residential School Survivor Society (IRSSS).
