Taking to the local music scene immediately, Wherzpeter played on the Kootenay Lake ferry for the “Our Ferry Matters” campaign, and performed to enthused audiences in Crawford Bay, Kootenay Bay, Nelson, Sirdar and Creston. Covid restrictions severely interrupted our performance schedule, and as bookings were cancelled, we responded by creating 17 episodes of a successful free online music show, TUNE INN, in our studio, Stonewin Sound. Each show featured two separate artists, with the two of us hosting and performing songs before, during and after every edition’s two acts.
