Ridge Meadows Got Talent, which calls itself “the greatest little show in the West,” will have a booth at the Ridge Meadows Home Show and a concert on Saturday, April 30.
The event, which encourages the participation of local talent of all genders, styles and ages, will return in 2023 after being canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic, explained organizer Phil Ransom.
“We’ve been off the grid. But, we are still working to keep the dream alive,” he posted on the event’s Facebook page.
“Although we want to present RMGT this summer, barring a miracle, we probably won’t be able to present the show. We have a booth at the home show this year where we will be promoting RMGT deux-zéro-deux-trois! »
Two performers, Pam Dominelli and Caden Knudson, will perform at the talent show’s promotional concert on Saturday, with Dominelli performing at 6:30 p.m. and Knudson at 7 p.m.
Dominelli is a West Coast-born singer-songwriter, guitarist and bassist who performs in the Lower Mainland.
Knudson is a Maple Ridge born and raised singer-songwriter and intricate finger picker who is redefining easy listening.

“It’s nice to come back and play again after spending the last few years in uncharted territory. I’m looking forward to seeing lots of friendly faces and playing some familiar tunes,” said Knudson, who has been active in the Fraser Valley as a festival, café and farmers market artist.
The performances will take place on the Family Fest stage at the Albion exhibition center.
