Plaskett is one of the country’s most revered songwriters. His accolades include His accolades include a Juno award, numerous East Coast Music, Canadian Folk and Music Nova Scotia awards, and two Polaris short list nominations.

Lake Country cultural development coordinator Ryan Donn says he first saw Mangan in Victoria a Decade ago. “I appreciate his on-stage style and his artist advocacy.”

In 2017, Mangan, who lives in Vancouver, co-founded Side Door, a community marketplace platform for the arts that seeks to democratize and decentralize the entertainment industry by allowing non-traditional spaces to be venues.

Creekside Theatre is the fifth stop on Plaskett’s latest Canadian Tour. The respected songwriter has performed with the likes of Paul McCartney and the Tragically Hip.

“If you’ve been following his (Plaskett) music career over the years, you will have noticed he has taken turns delivering intimate and idiosyncratic singer-songwriter fare, incendiary riff-rock, left-leaning folk rock, as well as conceptual epics and off-kilter feats of musical stamina,” said Donn.
