Fred Eaglesmith has been through Regina a few times during his 35-year career as an alt-country balladeer. Most recently he’s been touring with what’s been billed as the Fred Eaglesmith Travelling Steam Show which included contributions from other artists.
For this tour, though, Eaglesmith is playing solo (outside of back-up act Tif Ginn who was one of the featured performers with the Ginn Sisters in the aforementioned Travelling Steam Show).
The concert goes at Artesian on 13th on Sunday August 2 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 advance and $30 door. And here’s video from earlier this year of Eaglesmith performing solo at a cafe in North Carolina
A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
