R.J. Haney Heritage Village and Museum are delighted to welcome traditional storyteller Kenthen Thomas to our stage. Respected Secwepemc elder Mary Thomas is Kenthen's late grandmother who taught him the art of storytelling. Storytelling for the Shuswap people traditionally entertained the families during long winter nights. It is also a way to keep history alive, tell important lessons, and share amusing anecdotes about all the creatures found on this land. These legends have been passed down through Kenthen's family for generations and feature the animals, birds and fish that were once integral to the lives of the region's original residents. Kenthen captivates audiences with his retellings of these traditional stories.

Local musician Lawren Clark and his repertoire of original songs, creative mashups, and re-interpretations of pop, jazz, Latin, and blues-style music is a perfect backdrop of musical entertainment for High Tea.

Partnering in this year's artful fashion show is Salmon Arm's Crazy River Clothing. Pick your slice of delight with Magnolia Pearl.
