with special guests The Trews Acoustic TrioSeptember 17 - 7:00 PM

All one has to do is say their name, and everyone knows that we are talking about one of Canada’s most iconic bands!

Blue Rodeo are ingrained in the very fabric of the Canadian songbook…dating back to their debut in 1987

And along the way have gained every award and accolade that can be bestowed on a band.

Their songs are like a visit from an old friend: “Try”, “Diamond Mine”, “Rose Coloured Glasses”, “Till I Am Myself Again”, “Lost Together”, “5 Days In May”, “Hasn’t Hit Me Yet” and still ever evolving and creating wonders new favourites.

We have been lost together for 19 months … What a strange and beautiful evening this will be.


Be it electric, or be it acoustic…no one rocks harder, with more soul shaking passion, than Nova Scotia’s:  The Trews

An Empire favourite fo many years, these guys leave it all on the stage every performance!

From party anthems like “Not Ready To Go”, to their stirring ode to our fallen, “Highway Of Heroes”, The Trews never disappoint!

The perfect pairing, to a perfect night!
