The Legend of George Jones      featuring Duane Steele and his band

Be a part of a special tribute to the man considered to be the greatest country singer of all time – George Jones. In a career that lasted more than 50 years, “the Possum” evolved from a young honky-tonker to a music icon as he recorded more than 150 albums. Award-winning singer/songwriter Duane Steele and his band will take you on a journey of Jones’ life through stories and songs. Steele will sing the hits of Jones that spanned five decades including his duets with Tammy Wynette to the No. 1 country song of all time, “He Stopped Loving Her Today”. You’ll also hear the stories of Jones’ life which echoed the country songs he sang – filled with success, failure, hard-drinking and heartbreak. The Legend of George Jones is a must-see for Jones fans and country fans alike!

The Wardens

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017  
7:30pm (Doors open at 6:30pm)
Bassano Community Hall

Celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary with The Wardens’ mountain music – blending folk, roots, and western style –  a piece of Canadiana with haunting three-part harmonies, drawing on 60+ years of fiercely protecting Canada’s most prized landscapes. The Wardens are the real deal; their careers have seen them get dangerously close to grizzly bears, fight devastating forest fires, and take part in the historic return of buffalo to Banff National Park in 2017. They preserve heroic tales from park history, and look to nature and landscape as muse. A rare look into nature and the soul of the Rocky Mountains, The Wardens’ original songs and stories are an essential part of Canada.

The Derina Harvey Band

Wednesday, January 17, 2018     
7:30pm (Doors open at 6:30pm)
Bassano Community Hall

Fearless front-woman Derina Harvey leads this Alberta-based five-piece Celtic rock group, who offer an authentic east-coast experience with a fresh take on traditional tunes as well as their own original jigs and reels. Their rocky, rhythmic undertow is layered with guitars, fiddle, and topped by Derina’s powerful voice. These transplanted east-coasters have earned a reputation with their high-energy live show, leaving many an audience out of-breath and hollering from their seats!

 Union Duke

Wednesday, March 28,  2018     
7:30pm (Doors open at 6:30pm)
Bassano Community Hall

Union Duke is a Toronto folk quintet with an explosive live show. Bridging soulful indie rock with bluegrass and country, the group belts out soaring harmonies with three, four and even five voices. These five guys have been making a commotion in one way or another since they were kids, and years of making music together have brought them to this: a heartbreak of twang and a bootshake of rock and roll. Their enthusiasm is infectious, and they leave every audience smiling – maybe the golden days aren’t so distant after all.
