Entertainment Includes:

 

Friday, August 30th – Sass Jordan
There are very few female singers used as an example to describe a sound/style, but Sass Jordan is one of them. A pioneer of female-fronted rock, Sass Jordan is known for her powerful, gritty, blues-infused rock and roll and crowd-pleasing performances, and has received a JUNO award and multiple nominations for ‘Most Promising Female Vocallist of the Year” and “Best Female Vocallist” respectively. Having sold over one million records worldwide, the raspy vocals of this rock sensation are unmistakable and command attention—she has worked alongside fellow rock greats like Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones, AC/DC and Van Halen, among many others. She is best known for hits like “Make You a Believer,” “So Hard,” “You Don’t Have to Remind Me” and “High Road Easy.”

 

Saturday, August 31st – The Hunter Brothers

Growing up in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan, Luke, J.J., Ty, Brock and Dusty — a.k.a. Hunter Brothers — cared about three things: hockey, music and farming.  Continually inspired by their everyday surroundings, including daily life involving family and farming, the Hunter Brother’s sophomore album State of Mind (out January 25, 2019) showcases the magic that can be found in the seemingly mundane. It works to fuse together the brothers’ genuine positive outlook on life and love, through impactful tracks such as “Next Year”, “I Still Fall”, “Train”, and the first single from the record, “Lost”, which recently became their third Top 10 hit.
The Hunter Brothers’ debut album, Getaway, featured two Top 10 smash hits, “Those Were The Nights” and “Born and Raised”, the latter of which was recently selected as the official anthem for the 2018 IIHF World Junior Hockey Tournament. 2019 continues to see this unconventional group on the rise, with an upbeat new single, “Lost”, in the Top 10 at Canadian Country Radio. State of Mind has been the #1 Canadian selling country album for three consecutive weeks since its release and has quickly amassed more than 3 million global streams across digital platforms since release.

 

Sunday, September 1st – Wayne Rostad

Singer, Songwriter, Entertainer, MC, Host and Author will grace the stage in the afternoon. Wayne is, without a doubt, one of the most commanding and compelling performers anywhere. He takes to the stage with his guitar in hand, a powerful one-man show that keeps audiences spellbound with his songs, stories, humor and passion. Wayne not only loves people, he loves humanity. He is a strong community activist, who has helped raise millions of dollars for The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and the Ottawa Heart Institute. He has also served as Honourary Chair of the Christmas Exchange. His work has garnered him many awards and honors. He has been inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame and the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame; he is a Paul Harris Fellow; and a Judge Brian Stevenson Award recipient. He also serves as a Board member at several charitable foundations.

Wayne is a member of the Order of Canada. He received this distinction for his strong commitment to the people in his own backyard and in communities across the country.

 

Sunday, September 1st – Brett Kissel

Some would imagine that Brett Kissel is settling perfectly into the role of one of the nation’s leading country music creatives, but settling is not a word in Kissel’s vocabulary.  In fact, with his new album in tow, just ask him: he’s only just begun! Over the past few years, the country crooner has received an armful of Canadian Country Music Association Awards, (including two straight wins for Male Artist of the Year and the coveted Fans’ Choice). Brett was the recipient of the Allan Slaight Honor from Canada’s Walk of Fame (previously presented to Drake, Shawn Mendes and The Weeknd), the Breakthrough Artist of the Year winner at the JUNO Awards, as well as the 2019 Country Album of the Year JUNO, and was recognized as the International Artist of the Year at the Worldwide Radio Summit in Hollywood, California (an honor bestowed upon Ed Sheeran and Adele in the last two years respectively).
