Fasten your seat belts folks as The Flippin’ Fiddler Scott Woods and his band will soon be in the area with an incredible old time show called Swingin’ Fiddles.

Written by

Local Grade 12 students Kennedy Thompson, Sean Fehr, and Luc Perrault had the unique opportunity to play at the University of Regina last week, as part of the JUNOfest excitement surrounding the awards show which aired on April 21 from Regina. Fourth Man in the Fire was selected as one of the top six bands to participate in the Juno showcase on April 17, through a SaskMusic contest and live Battle of the Bands.

 

With over 500 participants in 2013, the Swift Current & District Music Festival is still going strong into their 83rd year. The event provides a valuable opportunity for music students to practice performing for an audience, and gives them a tangible goal to strive for throughout the year.

Harry Manx hits Lyric stage on April 25

Written by

Although he has been in the music business for approximately 40 years, folk musician Harry Manx has only been a professional recording artist for the past fifteen. He will be bringing his extensive experience as an artist to the Lyric Theatre on April 25, as part of the Blenders music series.

 

Although ticket sales started less than a week ago, country superstar Randy Travis’ upcoming performance at Living Sky Casino is selling out fast. Marketing Coordinator Jacqueline Hudec noted that after only one week, 76% of tickets for the show are sold.

 

Tickets are on sale for this year's Long Day's Night music festival, which features a strong lineup of headlining performers and also includes fantastic opening acts from right here in Saskatchewan – including Swift Current's Over The Air.
