Harry Manx hits Lyric stage on April 25

Written by

Although he has been in the music business for approximately 40 years, folk musician Harry Manx has only been a professional recording artist for the past fifteen. He will be bringing his extensive experience as an artist to the Lyric Theatre on April 25, as part of the Blenders music series.


Although ticket sales started less than a week ago, country superstar Randy Travis’ upcoming performance at Living Sky Casino is selling out fast. Marketing Coordinator Jacqueline Hudec noted that after only one week, 76% of tickets for the show are sold.


Tickets are on sale for this year's Long Day's Night music festival, which features a strong lineup of headlining performers and also includes fantastic opening acts from right here in Saskatchewan – including Swift Current's Over The Air.


Local country-bluegrass band The Midnight Roses will be performing alongside Fiest, Rosanne Cash, Al Simmons, Amelia Curran, Neko Case, and many other fantastic artists at this year's Regina Folk Festival, August 9-11.

Steel Wheels rolling into Swift Current on April 5

Written by

Americana roots group Steel Wheels will be stopping in Swift Current to perform at the Lyric Theatre on April 5, as part of the Blenders music series. This dynamic four-piece string band focuses on a more 'stripped down' kind of sound, featuring acoustic instruments and vocal harmonies.


Since the 1990s, Swift Current residents have been able to enjoy a night out with some beautiful jazz music courtesy of students at Swift Current Comprehensive High School at their annual All That Jazz performance. This year's event will be on March 23, starting at the high school at 6:30 pm.
