The Washboard Union have quickly become one of Canadian country music’s fastest rising stars. The dynamic group that consists of; principal members David Roberts, Aaron Grain, and Chris Duncombe have earned a solid reputation as one of Canada’s best bluegrass/country/roots bands. From their self-titled debut album The Washboard Union released in 2012 and their EP In My Bones released in 2015, the group has embarked on nationwide tours as supporting and headlining acts. They are decorated CCMA, BCCMA, and WCMA winners. One of their most recent wins was 2017’s Canadian Country Music Association Awards Roots Artist or Group of the Year.
With their latest single, “Shine” climbing into the Top 10, and a recent gold certification for “Shot of Glory,” the Washboard Union was handpicked to join Old Dominion for their Canadian tour which kicks off on February, 1st 2018. On November 23rd you can catch The Washboard Union along with Jess Moskaluke and JJ Shiplett in Ottawa, ON. On November 26th The Washboard Union will be playing one of their first headlining gigs in Quebec at the Centennial Theatre. There are still tickets available to catch The Washboard Union headline and show off their unique musical skills.
The Centennial Theatre located at Bishop’s University in Sherbrooke, QC does it’s very best to bring Canadian country music to the greater Montreal region. With past headliners including; Terri Clark, Brett Kissel, Jordan McIntosh, and George Canyon the Centennial Theatre works in association with Firehouse Productions to ensure that Canadian country music has a special home in Quebec.
Music has touched my soul since day one. Whether it is performing or sitting down with some of the biggest names in music, I can always be found sharing my profoundly tender affection of music with anyone who will listen. Being a music journalist has allowed me to expand my knowledge of music and interact with some of my biggest childhood heroes. From days of radio broadcasting to sitting back, kicking off my cowboy boots and sharing my adventures with likeminded music fans online has been nothing short of amazing. Canada is full of true musical talent and I look forward to continuing to share my adventures in music with you.
