On April 6th we have a band that has been tearing up the Canadian, US and European festival and folk scene with their high voltage alt-country sound for the past couple of years: New Country Rehab. If you are a fan of country music, be prepared to have your socks blown off. If you’re not a fan of country be prepared to reassess that view. Their originals are spectacular and their covers of artists like Hank Williams or Bruce Springsteen are utterly surprising. Spearheaded by lead singer and fiddle player John Showman and joined by Champagne James Robertson on guitar, Ben Whiteley on double bass and Roman Tome on drums and backing vocals, this Toronto
based collective is ”poised to be the next big thing in Canadian music” according to the CBC’s Tom Power. They will be bringing their infectious love and enthusiasm for the music they are playing to our fabulous Stage in Morrisburg. Get to this show and see what the buzz is all about. The show which takes place at St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage in Morrisburg starts at 7pm. Tickets are $15 in advance or $18 at the door (all tickets general admission). Tickets are on sale at Basket Case in Morrisburg; Strung Out Guitars in Cornwall and Compact Music in Ottawa.
