June 7, 2019 will mark the 10thyear of our gala, and during those years you have helped us raise and invest more than $1.2million in the ‘little hospital that does’. We have been able to bring immense talent to our small community with the likes of Canadian icons Peter Mansbridge, Jann Arden, Rick Mercer and Col. Chris Hadfield. We literally went ‘out of this world’ to provide a stellar evening each year. So what next you ask?
We think it has been well worth the wait and we are thrilled to announce that we be bringing the top shelf performance of the JIM CUDDY BAND to our stage in June 2019.
For over 35 years, Jim Cuddy has written songs that have become indelible in the soundtrack of Canadian lives. With the release of his fourth solo album, Constellation, he adds ten songs to that extraordinary songbook.
As one of the founding members and creative forces behind Blue Rodeo, Cuddy has received nearly every accolade Canada can bestow upon a musician, from the Order of Canada and induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, to countless JUNO Awards and a Star on Canada’s Walk of Fame. Behind it all, is a simple devotion to his craft as a songwriter, which remains Cuddy’s tireless pursuit after more than three decades.
“I’ve always found fascination in the smallest details of human behavior,” says Cuddy of his songwriting. “It has been something that I look at and remember, whether it is the details of an exchange that I witnessed or an exchange that I have. Of course, as you get older there are bigger things that happen in your life that you realize you’ll never totally understand. There never seems to be a loss of things to write about.”
