George Canyon at the Winspear

Canyon and Jordan McIntosh take the stage at the Charlie White Theatre Oct. 18

Jordan McIntosh is a special guest at George Canyon’s show at the Mary Winspear Centre on Oct. 18.

Popular Canadian country musician George Canyon and his band will play the Charlie White Theatre this month.

Canyon’s new album Decade of Hits will highlight the show, which will be complimented with Canyon’s personal retrospect of the last 25 years.

The show in Sidney is only one stop along Canyon’s coast-to-coast, 29-show Canadian tour.

“I’m looking forward to singing favourites from this tremendous decade,” said Canyon.

A special guest alongside Canyon will be 18-year-old country musician Jordan McIntosh, who has been traveling with Canyon through the tour.

“It’s been incredible touring with George Canyon,” said McIntosh.

“I remember hearing George on the radio growing up and singing along to his songs. Fast forward 10 years and I now get to share the stage with him every night.

“It’s such an honour. This is a very important tour for him, celebrating a Decade of Hits, and to be hand picked by him to join the tour was the greatest ever.”

McIntosh said he will be performing his two latest singles Grew Up in a Country Song and That Girl as well as a few unreleased songs of his.

The show takes place Saturday, Oct. 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Mary Winspear Centre. Tickets are $45 at the box office, 250-656-0275 or marywinspear.ca.
