Tom Cochrane & Red Rider

Most Canadians probably know Tom Cochrane as a solo act. He’s been recording and performing under his own name since 1991. But before he reached that point in his career, he spent six years fronting a band called Red Rider, and that’s where he cut his teeth in the music game.

Tomorrow night (Tuesday, Feb. 17) Cochrane’s in town to perform with his former bandmates Ken Greer and Jeff Jones at Casino Regina as part of the band’s Take it Home Tour. That name’s derived from Cochrane’s newest album Take It Home which was released last week.

Tickets are $65, $70, and can be obtained through the casino box office. To close, here’s the video for a song Cochrane released in 2014 called “Sunday Afternoon Hang”:
