A concert set to bring Indigenous and non-Indigenous people together will be performed at the Sagebrush Theatre in mid August, with residential school survivors receiving part of the proceeds.

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

"I've played so many great shows, but this one, it’s different. We are intentionally bringing Indigenous and non-Indigenous sisters and brothers together to perform as one," Bandura said.

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

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

Bandura said he wants 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. Part of the ticket proceeds will go to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society (IRSSS).
