Canadian DJ-turned-country-singer Aaron Pritchett and classic rock band The Stampeders will entertain audiences at Red Deer’s Westerner Days next weekend.

On Friday at 8:30 p.m., the Juno Award-winning trio behind the 1970 North American hit Sweet City Woman will perform at the Centrium.

The Stampeders, with original members Rich Hodson, Ronnie King and Kim Berley, have been touring the country since reuniting 17 years ago at the Calgary Stampede. The band produced a slew of Canadian hits, including Wild Eyes, Hit the Road Jack and Carry Me.

Vancouver-based Pritchett, whose latest album is called Thankful, will take the Centrium stage at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 18. The country artist signed to Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger’s production company, 604 Records, is known for the singles Big Wheel, Warm Safe Place, The Weight, Done You Wrong, My Way and How Do I Get There.

Both concerts are free with Westerner Days gate admission.
