Ray Bouliane performance enjoyed by many at Kinnaird

Concerts in the Park on July 17 was another well-attended affair, with solo country/blues artist Ray Bouliane entertaining the crowd.

Solo artist Ray Bouliane was the entertainment for Concerts in the Park on Wednesday July 17.

Bouliane has been performing for about 40 years and makes regular appearances at many events in the Kootenays and throughout Western Canada.

“I performed at the Elks lodge when I was too young to be in there,” laughed Bouliane. “My parents had to come with me.”

He runs solo, perhaps not surprising for a man with 14 siblings.

Bouliane has a variety of songs in his repertoire and easily moves between Neil Young, the Eagles and Eric Clapton covers amongst many others.
