Blue Rodeo covered

The Blue Rodeo tribute starts at 7:30 and admission is by donation.

Canadian band Blue Rodeo, which was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at this year’s Canadian Juno awards, is being honoured by a group of well-known local musicians.

On Aug. 23 at the Elks’ Hall in Courtenay, these musicians will perform all your favourite Blue Rodeo songs.

The group consists of Richard Thompson, vocals, guitar, mandolin; Glenn Gark, vocals and guitar; Brian Morissette, vocals and guitar; Anela Kahiamoe, lap-steel guitar; Linda Safford, keyboards; David Burke, bass; and Rob Flannery, drums.

You might remember some of these musicians from the Harry Chapin tribute band in August 2010.

Blue Rodeo was formed in 1984 in Toronto and since then the band has released 12 full-length albums, along with multiple solo albums, side projects, and collaborations. The band continues to tour across Canada on a regular basis.

The Blue Rodeo tribute starts at 7:30 and admission is by donation.  For more information, call Karen at the Elks — 250-334-2512 or Richard at 250-338-0365.
