Spring welcomes another dessert concert at the Carlton Trail Ski Club near Dixon as Jolie Blue brings his unique brand of Canadiana and roots music to the venue. This is the third concert event at the clubhouse which has become a popular intimate concert setting for prairie performers. The tunes will be pouring out into the Dixon Hills on Friday, April 5.  

Blue is a journeyman in all senses of the word. He’s travelled back and forth across Canada bringing a traditional country two step and a bountiful bag of stories to audiences. He’s been performing a long time on small stages, on street corners busking and as a festival performer at folk and blues events. 

Blue is heavily inspired by Stompin’ Tom Connors, Canada’s quintessential storyteller, but he’s fashioned his own songs, road warrior stories, prairie grown viewpoints into his own catalogue. Just listen to the Canadian Convoy Rally Song to hear the homage to his idol, Stomping Tom. 

A born and raised Saskatchewan boy, Jolie Blue’s songs are wrapped up in farming, trucking, blue-collar life, and of course a rich musical heritage that extends back to Wilf Carter and Hank Snow. Catch this one-of-a-kind Saskatchewan musical artist at the Carlton Trail Ski Clubhouse on Friday. Doors open at 7:15 pm with the show at 8:00 and desserts to follow.  

Tickets are $22.50 per person with only 40 available. Tickets are available by emailing carltontrailskiclub@gmail.com or by texting Brian Grest at (306) 231-8284.
