Let the good times roll on! The King Eddy is here to keep the country music going every night August 19-21 in the historic heart of East Village.
Canadian country stars will hit the King Eddy stage and have you dancing all night long with live music starting at 11:00 pm.
Kicking off the late-night concert series is Alberta’s true-grit country band The Dungarees performing a free show on Friday night, followed by iconic Canadian country artists Aaron Goodvin on Saturday and Gord Bamford on Sunday.
A staple in the Canadian country music scene, The Dungarees have a definitive musical mandate- take the undeniable lyrical styling, soaring telecaster and steel guitar inherent in classic country, and inject it with harmony, modern intensity and pop sensibility to make it all their own.
It’s no small thing when a notorious straight shooter like Aaron Goodvin says, without exaggeration, that his current EP Lucky Stars contains “the best stuff I have come up with since…ever. I write a lot of songs. A lot of songs. And these are my best seven.” The EP has already produced Goodvin’s second career number one in Canada with “Boy Like Me” and the follow up single/title track “Lucky Stars” is currently climbing the charts there. “Boy Like Me” is set to reach US radio audiences later this year.
Gord Bamford stands as one of the most decorated artists in Canadian country music. He has built a loyal fanbase over the past decade. Gord’s captivating live shows have led him to receive 26 Canadian Country Music Association awards and multiple JUNO award nominations. With over 85 million streams and 5 billion audience impressions on radio globally, Bamford is a two-time winner of the CMA Global Country Artist Award, with 27 top 10 singles in Canada, including the no. 1 hits “When Your Lips are so Close” and “Dive Bar”. In 2021, “Dive Bar” hit certified gold status in Canada.
