Who: George Canyon
When: March 7, 2016
Where: Caruso Club, Sudbury, ON
It was a night filled with a mix of old and new songs, classic covers and fan favourites. Canyon really did offer something for everyone, with his rugged country good-looks and warm soothing sounds. The Set List included hits “Good Day To Ride”, “Drinkin’ Thinkin'” and “Betty’s Buns”. All of which had a very enthusiastic crowd singing right along. He also performed a few songs from his latest album; the title track, “I Got This”, what he announced will be his next single, “Daughters of the Sun” and his cover of the Snow Patrol hit, “Chasing Cars”.
A highlight of the evening was when North Bay’s Cory Marquardt joined Canyon on stage to perform a duet of the Merle Haggard classic, “Mama Tried”
No George Canyon concert would be complete without a few Johnny Cash tunes. The crowd responded well to “Ring of Fire” and “Folsom Prison Blues”.
Sudbury’s own Celine Tellier and her band opened for Canyon, not only at the Sudbury show, but the two nights previous in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. She was well received by her home town crowd.

Hello everyone! My name is Linda and I have been a fan of Canadian Music for as long as I can remember. That counts for way too many decades than I want to admit to! I have three primary passions in my life, music, photography and writing. When I can combine them all, I feel I am right where I should be. Though I can appreciate all genres of music, my particular favourite is Country. Canadian Country is moving in leaps and bounds. I love how it is progressing and I’m thankful that I can be a small part of it.
