Westerner Days has announced a rock band from Nova Scotia as its first music headliner.

The Trews will take the main stage at the Enmax Centrium on July 15 during Westerner Days Fair and Exposition which runs from July 15 to 19 at Red Deer’s Westerner Park grounds.

Tickets will go on sale for $25 (including all service fees) through Ticketmaster on Saturday May 2.

The Trews last album, No Time for Later, released in 2008, is a marriage of new and classic rock that has helped give the band a multigenerational appeal. The first single, Hold Me in Your Arms, has been available since November 25, 2007.

It premiered at the 2007 Grey Cup pre-game show and was immediately released on iTunes; it eventually went to number one on MuchMusic for a week in April 2008.

The band, now based in Toronto, was nominated for Group of the Year and Rock Album of the Year at this year’s Junos, but lost out to Nickelback and Sam Roberts’ Love At The End of the World.

People are invited to sign up on the social networking site, Facebook, and become a member of the Westerner Days Fair and Exposition Facebook page.

Visitors can then get the inside scoop on entertainment and attractions, and the chance to win Tickets to Ride and backstage passes to meet the bands.

Westerner Days is Central Alberta’s largest summer celebration.
