Saturday, July 30 brought some extremely talented country artists to North Bay for day 2 of their festival, Summer in the Park. Linda Heldman headed to North Bay for the weekend and now we are pleased to present you with her Day 2 coverage.
First up on Saturday was Ontario based, Jamie Gabbani, with her own brand of Western Blues-Rock. Be sure to check out her single, “Hoedown” which was released this past April and is sure to have you up on your feet, dancing around.
Next to the stage was North Bay’s own, Cory Marquardt. If you follow Canadian Beats, you know that Cory is definitely no stranger to our coverage! Otherwise known as the Lion Man, he takes control of the stage and knows how to get a crowd into the show. With hits like Smartphone, This Man and Nowhere With You, this guy is going nowhere but up.
The third act of the day to hit the Summer in the Park stage is what one would call a quadruple threat…actor, producer, director AND singer/songwriter, Kiefer Sutherland. If you haven’t heard his music, be sure to check it out right after you’re done with this review, he released a brand new video for his single, “Can’t Stay Away” just last week.
The headliner for the night was none other than Tim Hicks, who I’m quite sure you’ve all heard of, with singles such as “Stronger Beer”, “Young, Alive & In Love” and “Stompin’ Ground”, you’d have to be living under a rock to be unaware of this Canadian country artist. As usual, Tim put on a killer show, constantly interacting with his bandmates on stage, and giving the fans in the crowd exactly what they came for, a rockin’ good time.

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.
