The first major Canadian tour of 2017 will be underway beginning January 12th – Brett Kissel‘s Ice, Snow & 30 Below. Aptly named, The 19-date tour will cover 10 dates in Ontario, 1 in Quebec, 4 in Nova Scotia, 2 in New Brunswick and 2 in P.E.I.
Late last year, Kissel, a Juno Award winner, multi Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) award winner, and reigning CCMA Fan’s Choice and Male Artist of the Year, posted a contest on social media to vie for an opening spot at each venue. In mid-December, the lucky winners were announced. Since we here at Canadian Beats are familiar with many of the selected artists and bands, we thought we would give you a little background on who you are going to see.
Traditionally, when you think Canadian Country Music, Toronto, Ontario does not come to mind first. Let me tell you, it is more country than you might think! Two of the three major independent country labels/management teams are in Toronto. Many of our top Canadian Country Artists call Toronto home. Heck, even the Canadian Country Music Association is in Toronto. You can’t get much more country than that! So, to have Brett Kissel bring his tour to Toronto is not all that far fetched.
Sunday January 22, 2017, the Kissel crew pulls into the classic Danforth Music Hall for Stop #9. Joining Brett to open will be Warner Music Canada label mates, The Abrams. Yes, the boys also opened for the Hamilton show with special guest, Ashlynne Vince. This time, they are on their own. Rather than reiterate much of what I posted a few days ago, I though I’d let some videos do the talking for me. You’re welcome to take a look back on the Hamilton post here. I really can’t say enough nice things about The Abrams – talented, grounded, wonderful human beings!

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.
