Its hard to believe that Boots and Hearts begins tomorrow! We are in full preparation mode at Canadian Beats and can’t wait to get on the grounds at Burls Creek in Oro-Medonte, Ontario to capture all that this amazing 4-day festival has to offer. Leading up to the festival, we have had the chance to sit down with a few of the Canadian artists gracing the stage this year to chat about Boots and Hearts and to give you the chance to learn a little bit about them before they hit the stage. In our final interview, we are pleased to introduce to you, Tim & The Glory Boys.
Introduce yourself to our readers.
Hey there, I’m Tim, of Tim and the Glory Boys. I’m 43, married 15 years to wife Carla. We made 3 humans together that are 10, 9, and 6 in age. I like soaking in hot tubs and watching the Trump saga unfold on various American news programs.
What part of Canada are you from/do you currently reside in?
Winnipeg originally. (Born and raised) For the last 10 + years I’ve lived in Abbotsford BC, just outside of Vancouver. As it so typically goes: Once you get married and have the children, you WILL end up where are your wife’s mother lives.
Describe your preparations for a big festival like Boots and Hearts.
I think we’ll just get up there and do what we do!
There are so many talented artists who are taking part in this festival. Who are you excited to check out?
We are super excited to check out Miranda Lambert, Morgan Wallen, The Wild Feathers, and HARDY! Too many to mention to be honest!
Are you performing at any other music festivals this summer that you would like to tell us about?
What does the rest of 2019 look like for you?
Touring through the western United States, making new music, and – in between – hanging on the farm, driving tractor, and floating in the pool.
What is your favourite festival food?
I’m Nicole, a biology teacher by day, but my life revolves around music. I’m that girl that you will always find with the concert t-shirt on and ear buds in. It is rare that you find me without some type of music playing in the background. I connect all of my life experiences to music. It truly has its own language in my heart. There is nothing more exciting than taking in all that a concert has to offer. I love to support local Canadian acts and attend as many shows that I can.
