Written by

Americana roots group Steel Wheels will be stopping in Swift Current to perform at the Lyric Theatre on April 5, as part of the Blenders music series. This dynamic four-piece string band focuses on a more 'stripped down' kind of sound, featuring acoustic instruments and vocal harmonies.

 

Since the 1990s, Swift Current residents have been able to enjoy a night out with some beautiful jazz music courtesy of students at Swift Current Comprehensive High School at their annual All That Jazz performance. This year's event will be on March 23, starting at the high school at 6:30 pm.

 

Local musicians are up for Saskatchewan Country Music Awards this year, with eight artists and bands from the southwest nominated in eleven different categories. Founder of the SCMA's Southwest Chapter, Glenna Switzer, is thrilled to see the members of the group seeing the recognition they deserve.
