Kevin Costner and Modern West play Sun Peaks July 7

 | April 12, 2012

On Saturday, July 7th, one of Hollywood’s biggest stars will touch down in Sun Peaks, British Columbia. Kevin Costner and Modern West will play a free outdoor concert in the mountain village of Sun Peaks.

Supporting acts will be revealed in May, but Sun Peaks officials confirm local singer/songwriter Margit Bull and Sweet Grass will start the show.

While free to the public, ticket details will be released in the coming weeks.

Costner is best known for his acting career, and the successes of films such as The Bodyguard and Dances with Wolves. But, music has also long been a part of Costner’s artistic repertoire. In 2005 the band Kevin Costner and Modern West emerged with influences from a broad tapestry of American music.

Kevin Costner and Modern West’s new single, The Angels Came Down, will be one of many played at the mountain venue. The recording is featured on .

This free outdoor concert in the mountain village will be the biggest event Sun Peaks has seen, and will certainly be a highlight of an otherwise full schedule of events planned for the resort this summer; the mountain community will host events every weekend from June 30th to September 29th.
