The RFF joined forces with Agribition last year to present a couple of Saskatchewan musical acts as part of the annual livestock extravaganza and rodeo. The feature acts in 2014 were Belle Plaine and the Dead South. Things must have gone well enough that the two organizations have renewed their partnership for 2015.
The Dead South, who have had a solid run of success with appearances at JazzFest Regina in June, the All Folk’d Up Festival in Montmarte in July, the Regina Folk Festival in August, and their recent win as Best Band in Best of Regina, are returning to Agribition. They’ll play the Ag Ex Pavilion on Thursday, Nov. 26. The show is free with admission to the rodeo.
On Friday, Nov. 27 Saskatchewan country artist Blake Berglund will be the showcase artist (and rumour has it that Belle Plaine may sit in on some of the songs in the set). You can find information on both gigs on the RFF website.
And to give you a sense of what Berglund’s been up to lately, here’s a video for his collaboration with Belle Plaine called “Town To Town”
