Creston born and raised Adam Winn lives a busy but balanced life, working as a firefighter in Fort St. John AB, raising a family with his wife, Tammy, and still finding time to write songs and perform.

After a successful performance at last Friday’s Wine Down event at Baillie-Grohman Estate Winery, which he followed up by hosting Jam Night at Jimmy’s Pub & Grill on Saturday, Winn will be featured in a concert at Morris Flowers Greenhouse on Erickson Road this Saturday, August 12th evening.

Winn says his roots are firmly in folk and rock music, but he has developed a distinctive voice and style over the years. With a voice described as “alternately husky and soaring” he sings of the fragility of life and “relationships gone bad or remarkably bad”, according to his bio.

Joining Winn for Saturday night’s lineup will be another local success story, Emma Kade, who has been playing guitar and writing original music since she was 13. Kade’s blend of folk and pop songs are surprisingly mature, and are delivered by a memorable voice that has entertained many in her short career.

Winn says another surprise or two could be in store for Saturday evening, too.

Tickets for the concert are $20 and are available at Morris Flowers or at the venue. A beer and wine cash bar will be available. The music starts at 7 pm.
