Colin Bunt is a well known local country singer and songwriter. Although fairly new to Creston, Bunt has fit well into the music scene. He plays and sings at local rest homes and coffee houses (Wynndel and Yahk).

Bunt and his country cousins entertained at the Creston Valley Farmers’ Market last year and look forward to this year’s market.

Bunt has been entertaining for over 50 years and is well known across western Canada and the western U.S.A. in the western swing music circle. He has been nominated for an induction into the Western Swing Music Society Hall of Fame. His shows can be seen on YouTube, as well as on DVD and CD.

Bunt performs with his cousins Joanne (vocals), Mervin (bass) and Ralph (guitar and mandolin). He will team up with his cousins in May and do a five-week tour in Alberta, playing at several music festivals.

They can be heard at a dinner and dance on March 26 at the Rotacrest Hall. Tickets are available at Black Bear Books.
