In the three days leading up to the 103rd Grey Cup Championship game, the energy and excitement in Winnipeg will be at an all-time high thanks to the Manitoba Craft Beer Concert Series. On Thursday night at the RBC Convention Centre in downtown Winnipeg, music lovers, football fans and proud Winnipeggers alike will celebrate the Grey Cup spirit by watching some of the best musical talent our nation has to offer. Dallas Smith, Aaron Pritchett, and Leanne Pearson will take to the stage in this country night edition of the 3-day Manitoba Craft Beer Concert Series.
After getting his start as the lead vocalist for the alt rock band Default, Dallas Smith broke out into the Canadian rock/country scene in force. He’s found success as a singer-songwriter solo artist, with his debut country album Jumped Right In selling over 100,000 digital singles and garnering a nomination for Country Album of the Year at the 2013 Juno Awards. In March of the same year, Smith sold out a Canadian tour with American rock legend Bob Seger. Smith’s sophomore release, Lifted, won Country Album of the Year at the 2015 Juno Awards.
Growing up in small-town Northern BC, Aaron Pritchett drew his earliest musical influences from 80’s Rock, but the transition to country music came naturally, “it was based on being able to relate to the stories that country songs told. Those stories were a lot like mine. That feeling resonated with me and I strive to convey that in my music today” Still there is no doubt that his rock roots have had a major influence on his sound with hits such as the classic’s "Big Wheel", “Hold My Beer” and “Let’s Get Rowdy” to his latest “Boat on the Water” "Hold You Like My Whiskey" and “Wake You With A Kiss”.
Leanne Pearson has been described by industry folk as level headed, mature, sweet, funny and very talented. This country rocker walks on stage with a pretty dress and a big smile, then shatters your expectations with her edgy stage presence. “Get Outta My Heart” hit Top 48 on the Canadian Country Music Charts. CMT added the quirky music video, which turned heads across the country. The follow up single “The Only Thing” hit Top 90. If her name sounds familiar, that’s because Leanne’s singles have been played on several local radio stations, including Winnipeg’s own QX104. Leanne has headlined countless shows across Manitoba and opened for many heavy hitters. She was also apart of the 2015 Dauphin’s Countryfest lineup. Doors open at 7:30 pm.
