Swamp Water (l-r: Warren Taylor

Swamp Water will perform at Saturday’s free concert in Memorial Park.

The classic rock band from Hope is comprised of Kieth Campbell on lead vocals, Ken Hillstrom on lead guitar, Warren Taylor on guitar, Kelly Stack on bass, and Barry Stewart on drums.

A love for music and having fun brought the group together two years ago. Since then, they’ve performed numerous times locally at different venues. Each Swamp Water member has been playing with bands, from Whistler to Williams Lake, for about 20 years.

The concert on Saturday takes place in conjunction with the Hope Mountain Market from 12-2 p.m. at the band shell.

The summer Concerts in the Park series is presented by the Hope & District Arts Council, with funding from the province through B.C. Gaming. Bottles of water donated by Nestle Waters will be distributed for free at the concert along with ice donated by Buy & Save Foods.
