Andrew Mercer of Cod Gone Wild and Newfoundland’s Dave Whitty are presenting the 2013 East Meets West Tour which begins on Friday in Vernon.

The 16-show tour will run until June 2.

Whitty is promoting his debut EP, Let It Rest.

“I have always been a fan of Dave’s music,” Mercer said of Whitty. “He is just exciting to watch, and I believe it is very important for us independent musicians to collaborate and work together to promote and celebrate our craft.”

Cod Gone Wild has been promoting their second album, The Traveller.

“We are excited to get out on the road and play some new venues and re-visit some of the places here in B.C. that we have loved playing in the past,” said Mercer. “Our music has evolved so much over the last couple of years since adding multi-talented violin/fiddle player Anjuli Otter to the mix and we have so much exciting new music to share, we just want to get out there and perform.”

The Summerland concert will be at Centre Stage on Saturday, April 27 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased at The Beanery Cafe and the Sweet Tooth Cafe.
