Apple Music Fans’ Choice Award nominee and multiplatinum, award winning entertainer Tim Hicks announced today that he will turn up the heat this winter on his national headlining Get Loud Tour, which hits Prince George November 29.
Tickets start at $39.50 plus service charges and fees.
Hicks along with special guests Tebey, Madeline Merlo (in the East), Andrew Hyatt (in the West), and Washboard Union (Toronto only), will take the energy-charged tour to 16+ cities across the country with additional dates in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick to be announced soon.
Country music’s blue collar everyman, building from local acclaim to a nationally recognized name, Hicks continues to lead the way, expanding the sound and style that helped define today’s country music. The platinum selling entertainer is a “true star on the Canadian country music scene” (GoBe Weekly), “proving he knows how to tailor his songs to his ever-expanding audience” on his most recent album NEW TATTOO.
The longevity of Hicks career continues to reach new heights with two platinum and six golf certified singles in addition to a gold album and twelve Top 10 radio hits garnering close to 1.3 billion audience impressions. The first recipient of the Nielsen Compass Award at the 2018 Country Music Association of Ontario awards show, an honour that recognizes an artist for the most total content plays including streams, single and album sales as well as total social media following, Hicks commemorates his wide-open sound as one of the defining influences on today’s Country Music with his first nomination for the Apple Music Fans’ Choice category at the 2018 CCMA Awards.
Always akin to his fans, Hicks released his fourth studio album, New Tattoo, last month. His first studio release since 2016’s Shake These Walls, which debuted as the No.1 Canadian Country Album on the Nielsen Soundscan Top Country Albums Chart upon release – New Tattoo is a fiercely confident collection of 12 tracks co-written by Hicks and produced by Jeff Coplan with the exception of “LOUD” (produced by Todd Clark), and “Gettin’ To Me” (produced by Jeff Coplan and David ‘Dwave’ Thomson), that catapult between traditional country grooves, stadium-sized rock riffs and blue collar country. First single “LOUD”, which was licensed by the NHL in North America, was the #1 most added song at Canadian radio (all formats), its first week of release, and continues to climb the radio charts with over 2 million streams to date.
Tim Hicks Fan Club pre-sale begins Tuesday, July 17 at 10 a.m. local time, followed by a general pre-sale on Wednesday, July 18 at 10 a.m. local time and public on sale Thursday, July 19 at 10 a.m. at www.ticketsnorth.ca For the “Get Loud Tour” Hicks has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket will go to Unison Fund and their work providing counseling and emergency relief services to the Canadian music community www.unisonfund.ca.
Come watch the talented Genevieve Jaide play Friday November 30th! This will be her third show at Trench Brewing and Distilling!
When Genevieve Jaide takes the stage, everything else falls away. The pure intent with which she delivers each note captivates the audience and brings the room to a state of presence that is rare to witness. Her debut album, For Him, captures the powerful vulnerability that Genevieve displays on stage, and tells the stories of the years that have led her to the release of these lyrically rich songs. For Him delivers melodies that stay with you and depict the work of an artist with a love for the craft of songwriting.
The son of an organist/choir director and 50s vinyl fan, Joe grew up in a large musical household in southern Ontario. Trading the family piano for an acoustic guitar, and Hamilton Mountain for the Rocky Mountains, he played in basement apartments and open mics before recording his first EP in Calgary 2004. Pausing to pursue a PhD in Vancouver and raise a family, Joe returned to music as frontman for The Mixtapes cover band in Kathmandu, Nepal (2014 - 2016).
In 2017 and 2018, Joe returned to songwriting and performing with the most excellent Ellen Braun ,Together as the duo Trundled the two released their eponymous EP in 2017 and have played concert halls, bars, stages, caves, mountain tops, and stairwells in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario.
Joe’s songwriting blurs genres and is influenced by folk, Americana, Irish, and independent musical styles. He wraps words and melodies in a musical house framed by guitars and piano, and his solo shows mark a new chapter of audience captivation. Now a full-time resident of Prince George, Joe is playing solo shows and continues to tour with Trundled

About the film:
From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi (“MERU”) and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin comes National Geographic Documentary Film’s FREE SOLO, a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of the free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock ... the 3,000ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park ... without a rope.
Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnold’s climb set the ultimate standard: perfection or death. Succeeding in this challenge, Honnold enters his story in the annals of human achievement. FREE SOLO is both an edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who exceeded our current understanding of human physical and mental potential. The result is a triumph of the human spirit.

Artisans are invited to come forward with their most imaginative and innovative giftware - the most important thing is that the work be handmade in this region. Special priority will be given to artisans of Indigenous ancestry.

Last seen in Prince George in 2012 and 2014, A Christmas Carol tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a greedy businessman who thinks only of making money. For him, Christmas is, in his own words, a humbug. It has been seven years since his friend and partner, Jacob Marley, died and on Christmas Eve. Marley's ghost tells him he is to be visited during the night by three spirits: The Ghost of Christmas Past, The Ghost of Christmas Present and The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. When Scrooge awakens on Christmas morning he is a new man, intent on doing good and celebrating the season with all of those around him. Filled with Christmas music, dance and entertainment for the whole family, this Holiday Classic is not to be missed!
