Blackie and the Rodeo Kings
25th Anniversary Tour
with special guests Digging Roots
February 21, 2022
The pandemic emerged as Blackie and the Rodeo Kings marked their 25th anniversary as a band with the release of King of This Town. Originally, Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing and Tom Wilson came together to record what was supposed to be a one-off tribute album to the great Canadian songwriter Willie P. Bennett. Recognizing the special chemistry and the resulting joy of creating music together has brought Blackie and The Rodeo Kings back to stage and studio again and again.
Digging Roots breathe life into songs from their land, Turtle Island, to raise their voices in solidarity with a global chorus of Indigenous artists, activists and change-makers.
