On July 20, Shann and Ray Gowan invite you to listen to the amazing and talented artist, Parker Millsap at the Grove at their farm.
Best known for his multi-instrumental songs and song-writing, this will be an amazing summer evening filled with friends in the wide open space of southwest Saskatchewan.

At only 24 years of age, the Oklahoma native is quickly making a name for himself with his captivating live performances, soulful sound, and character-driven narratives. He recently wrapped up a banner year, which included his network television debut on CONAN, an invitation to play with Elton John at the Apple Music Festival, an Austin City Limits taping and an Americana Music Association nomination for Album of the Year, as well as winning the International Folk Music Awards’ Artist Of the Year.
Millsap’s most recent release, The Very Last Day, has received praise from The New York Times, The Boston Globe, LA Times, Austin Chronicle and Rolling Stone to name a few.
Millsap grew up in the tiny town of Purcell, OK (pop. 5,952) where he attended a Pentecostal church with his family three times a week for most of his youth.  
Though Millsap doesn’t consider himself very religious these days, the experiences engraved upon him inform his songwriting. Blending that fire and brimstone preaching with rock, country, blues and Waits-ian imagery, he has created a sound uniquely his own.
Bring your own: chair, bugspray, drinks, and if necessary, designated driver.
Tickets for this concert are $30, paid to Shann Gowan.
