Tickets available online at www.WhiskeyJackMusic.com
Canadian country music began (some say in Wingham) when Wilf Carter picked up his guitar and began to sing in 100
years ago! Wilf and the singers that followed inspired generations of country music stars, all roads leading to the
performers presenting this show.
Who: Whiskey Jack, Brian Good from the Good Brothers, Marie Bottrell & Douglas John Cameron.
What: Canadian Country Music Legends — present day legends performing songs and telling personal anecdotes of those who inspired them. “Legends beget heroes. Heroes beget legends”.
When: Sunday, June 12, 2022, 3.00 p.m.
Where: Wingham Town Hall Theatre, 274 Josephine St., Wingham, On
How much: $35.00 on line at www.huronwavesfestival.ca or www.whiskeyjackmusic.com
Brian Good from The Good Brothers will walk on stage with 7 Juno Awards and a
lifetime of memories about those who inspired him. He’s joined by his wife Susie as
they share songs by his pal, Gordon Lightfoot and others. Marie Bottrell, 8 time Juno
nominee, two time Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the year and
Country Music Hall of Fame Inductee is awash in credentials elevating her to star
status. Marie will sing songs by Anne Murray and more. The support team, now in
their 45th year, stars of the CBC’s Tommy Hunter Show and Stompin’ Tom’s show, will
be the 5-piece band, Whiskey Jack. Their impressive musical chops will be on full
display throughout the show.
All of these artists are Canadian country music royalty, each with hit records and
music awards from their multiple decades long careers.
And, yes, you will hear your favourite songs by Gordon Lightfoot, Anne Murray, Don
Messer, Gordie Tapp, Wilf Carter, Stompin’ Tom Connors, Tommy Hunter, Al Cherny,
Ian and Sylvia and more.
For Duncan Fremlin, Whiskey Jack’s leader, and the others, this show — hopefully
the forerunner of more to come across Canada — is far more than a nostalgic trip.
“Having contemporary all stars present this show is a reminder of how universal our
music still is,” he says. “And playing in Wingham, the home of the CKNX Barn-dance,
makes this particularly special for us — and for our audience? We guarantee goose
As the show’s musical director, Fremlin is also a raconteur with a wealth of fun and personal stories to share — some of them are in his recently published book, My Good Times with Stompin’ Tom.
