An entertaining lineup of local country and western singers will perform on Friday at Red Deer’s Festival Hall.
This year’s Awareness Musicale, presented by the Central Alberta Prostrate Awareness and Support Group, has a decidedly country bent.
Singer/songwriter Ben Crane hails from the Rocky Mountain House area. His musical stylings are rooted in traditional country, with hints of bluegrass, jazz, blues and swing.
Crane will perform tunes that range from old cowboy ballads, to original songs about the western lifestyle, to straight-ahead gospel selections that pack a punch.
Along with headliner Crane, the public awareness concert will also include performances by Lloyd Griffith, O’Frisky, Ray Baird and Rod Soonias, and the Visions Country Gospel singers.
Tickets for the 7 p.m. show are $20 by calling 1-877-895-4430, visiting www.davidthompsonhealthtrust.com, or from 53rd Street Music in Red Deer. Net proceeds go to the David Thompson Health Trust in support of those afflicted with prostate cancer.
