Kicking off Kootenay tour in Castlegar

Kids' troubadour gets great weather and setting for the first of ten local shows

Children's entertainer Will Stroet delights a Monday morning group outside the Castlegar and District Public Library.

 

The “Bike Safety Boogie” led off the show Monday, July 15 outside Castlegar’s library at the intimate mini-amphitheatre.

Will Stroet, of Vancouver, had the kids singing and joining in with all kinds of inclusive action. Stroet would also do a show in Trail that day, and one in Rossland as well, before more shows in Kaslo and Nelson.

After that the schedule led the energetic Stoet to dates in the East Kootenays.

The singer/guitarist was enjoying the trip as he was able to have his wife and daughter with him for the circuit.

The morning show was a presentation of the summer reading club which is operating at the library for the season.
