Free Concert - The Dungaress at Camrose Historic Bailey Theatre

Free Tickets Available Now (First Come/First Served)
Get Yours Now! Don't Be Disappointed, When They're Gone! 

Free Concert: Sept 25 (7:30) Bailey Theatre Camrose, AB
Tickets at the Chuck MacLean Arts Center
Part of Camrose Arts Society's Alberta Culture Days 2015 Presentations

In a genre dominated by solo artists, The Dungarees stand out as a 5-man brotherhood, dedicated to their love of traditional, high energy country music.

The Dungarees have performed at some of the biggest country festivals in Canada, including Big Valley Jamboree and Dauphin CountryFest and recently opened for Reba McEntire at Calgary’s Saddledome for The Calgary Stampede.

10 days and 28 sets of music later, the boys wrapped up their Calgary Stampede by opening for Blake Shelton! A great way to finish up a great couple weeks.

They have a definitive musical mandate; Take the undeniable lyrical styling, twangy telecaster and steel guitar that they love from classic country, and inject it with modern intensity and pop sensibility.
  •  The band was nominated for 5 Edmonton Music Awards and took home Country Recording of the Year!
  •  They just got on to the 2nd ballot as Roots Artist of the Year for the 2015 Canadian Country Music Awards!
Coming to Camrose for the Dungrarees concert, Camrose Street Performers Festival, or any of the other events during Alberta Culture Weekend (Sept 25 - 27, 2015)...Be sure to contact the Norsemen Inn, for the special rate they're offering.

Prostate Cancer Canada Challenges Canadians to Wear Plaid for Dad

TORONTO, May 14, 2015 /CNW/ - This morning Prostate Cancer Canada, along with Vice-Admiral Mark Norman, Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy announced the launch of its latest initiative, Wear Plaid for Dad.

Wear Plaid for Dad is a national awareness campaign to tackle the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian men; prostate cancer. On June 19, PCC is asking Canadians to reach into their closet and clad themselves in this beloved pattern as a special nod to the men in their lives, leading up to Father's Day. Take a photo and share with the hashtag #WearPlaidforDad and visit to make a donation.

Pledges to wear plaid have already been made by notable Canadians including:

    Don Cherry, Hockey Night in Canada
    John Catucci, host of the Food Network's You Gotta Eat Here
    Dave Thomas, Second City TV
    The Honourable Stephen McNeil, Nova Scotia Premier

Prostate Cancer Canada is the leading national foundation dedicated to the elimination of the disease through research, advocacy, education, support and awareness, benefiting the 1 in 8 Canadian men who will face a prostate cancer diagnosis in their lifetime.

Will you take the plaid pledge on June 19?
