Jimmy Rankin bringing his roots music to The Hideout
Singer Jimmy Rankin brings his four-time Juno Award-winning roots music to The Hideout, south of Red Deer, this weekend.
The Cape Bretoner who started out entertaining with his step-dancing siblings in The Rankin Family, has gone on to release four critically acclaimed solo albums.
The multi-platinum selling artist has won a slew of awards, including 27 East Coast Music Awards and seven Canadian Country Music Awards, including 2012’s Roots Artist of the Year.
His fifth CD, Tinsel Town, is loaded with yuletide cheer.
It contains some Christmas classics as well as four original tracks that show Rankin’s knack for storytelling.
Rankin’s cross-Canada tour stops on Sunday night at The Hideout in Gasoline Alley.
Tickets for his 9 p.m. show are $30 at the door. Doors open at 6 p.m. For more information, call 403-348-5319.
