Canadian icon Jann Arden was in town over the weekend and while folks expected her on the stage at Mary Winspear, the Alberta treasure was also spotted strolling through Sidney.

Arden – in town for a two-night run of sold out shows in support of her March release These Are The Days – posted to social media as she strolled down Beacon Avenue and walked seaside with friend Cynthia Loyst and eternal sidekick, her dog Midi.

Arden and Loyst also made their way down to Victoria to “be tourists,” according to an Instagram post where she said, “What a gloriously beautiful city.”

On her way down from Nanaimo earlier in the week, Arden shot a quick Facebook LIVE while driving the Malahat with tour manager Chris Brunton.

“I love Vancouver Island, it’s beautiful,” she says. “I love driving in the rain.”

On Sunday evening, Arden takes the stage again to conclude a four-part speaker series that included Peter Mansbridge, Wade Davis and Andrew Coyne. The writer and podcaster delves into the story behind her book Feeding My Mother, discussing the journey of caring for her mother Joan who has Alzheimer’s.

As the tour comes to an end, finishing up this week with shows in West Vancouver and Abbotsford, Arden will next prepare for the 2019 launch of her CTV show Jann, a six-episode comedy loosely based on her own life.
