Pick of the Day: Down Home Boys

Plenty of bluegrass and rollicking country folk music will be played tonight at the Exchange courtesy of the Regina-based Down Home Boys and the Saskatoon trio The Hard Ramblers (pictured).

To give you a taste of the Down Home Boys in action, here’s video from the 2010 Redneck Parade at Regina Beach.


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.

  1. That’s not the Down Home Boys you’re looking at, Talbot. The photo posted here is of The Hard Ramblers.

  2. Frankly, if you’re going to run a headline for the Down Home Boys you should include them in the picture. This is like when the L-P occasionally runs the headline “Convicted pedophile seeks release into society” then above it, a stand-alone of someone from the food bank receiving a cheque for $1,409.83

  3. Or when they run a photo from a concert ABOVE the fold, and then inform you BENEATH the fold that the review will in fact appear in the NEXT day’s paper. Sheesh.
