A live music concert is being held this Saturday night at Nickle Lake Regional Park, featuring Karissa Hoffart and Justin LaBrash.
We spoke with Karissa about her many local performances in recent weeks, including at Heritage Village Days on August 5th Detour August 20th, at Pumpjacks on August 27th.
"I love being in Weyburn. It is my hometown. It feels so welcoming, so I'm really happy to be here and performing here."
She said Heritage Village this year was, "an amazing experience. I've been performing there for at least four consecutive years," she shared, noting she wasn't able to perform there last year and truly missed it.
"It's such a beautiful event, and so I was able to perform all afternoon on that Friday, between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m., like 30 or so songs that day or more," Hoffart noted. "It was a lot of good songs."
While she has many of her own songs on digital platforms, she said her favourite songs to cover are by Shania Twain and Loretta Lynn.
