BIA-backed TD Concerts at the Pier series features six shows

Daniel Wesley will perform July 9 in the Concerts at the Pier series in White Rock.

WHITE ROCK — Daniel Wesley, The Washboard Union, Dustin Bentall and Harry Manx are some of the performers signed on for the TD Concerts at the Pier series staged in White Rock this summer.

“The quality of the concert series lineup speaks volumes for what we are trying to achieve,” said Douglas Smith, executive director of the BIA.
