It will be a maple leaf country weekend at this year’s ninth annual Summer Bash at Paradise Hill.
Organizers have lined up High Valley, the Canadian country duo of brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel to headline the Aug. 12 fundraiser for the Paradise Hill Community Centre.
“We’re pretty excited to land them, it’s a great Canadian group,” said Neil Macnab, a director of the community centre.
They are two time CCMA winners for a group or duo of the year based in Nashville, Tennessee.
“They are just on a European tour right now,” said Macnab.
High Valley will be the first Canadian act to headline at the bash following three years of classic American country groups with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Diamond Rio and Sawyer Brown.
“So we are switching over to a current Canadian act,” said MacNab.
The Rempel brothers stars originally hail from Blumenort, Alberta, a small community near the hamlet of La Crete.
High Valley has many recent top 10 hits and a new album Dear Life reaching No. 3 on billboard charts in December 2016.
They will play at the Paradise Hill Arena on a Saturday night as part of the weekend’s events that kick off with a Friday night cabaret, a slo-pitch tournament and other activities.
Tickets are $70 and go on sale June 12 at Paradise Hill Ranch & Western Wear.
Macnab suggests fans purchase tickets early with only 600 bleacher and standing room tickets available in the arena.
Advertising sponsorships can be renewed or purchased by contacting Darin Gervais at 306-821-7738.
Proceeds from the bash will help pay down the outstanding $1.7 million debt on the community centre that fully opened last October.
The 19,000 sq. ft. facility is attached to the local school with a day care and shared spaces for community uses and groups.
The centre will host this year’s Summer Bash banquet for the first time.
