Bluewater Health Foundation, with the support of presenting sponsor LiUNA, are excited to announce that Canadian rock band The Trews will headline the LiUNA Block Party on Friday, June 19, 2020 at the Suncor Agora in Centennial Park.
About - The Trews
The Nova Scotia-bred, Hamilton, Ontario-based combo of singer/guitarist Colin MacDonald, guitarist John-Angus MacDonald, bassist Jack Syperek, and drummer Chris Gormley – songwriters all – has won universal acclaim for both their dazzling live performances and wildly accessible songs. The band’s current, sixth studio album, the towering and multifaceted Civilianaires, was cut in Toronto with fast-rising producer Derek Hoffman and features marquee assists from Arkells mainmain Max Kerman, super-producer Bob Rock, and celebrated singer/songwriter Serena Ryder.
About - Red Wanting Blue
Hailed as “Midwestern rock heroes” by American Songwriter, Red Wanting Blue has spent the last 20 years establishing themselves as one of the indie world’s most enduring and self-sufficient acts, notching appearances everywhere from Letterman to NPR and reaching #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, all the while operating largely outside the confines of the traditional music industry. For their powerful new album, ‘The Wanting’, the band handed production duties over to acclaimed singer/songwriter Will Hoge, who helped them create their most ambitious, fully realized collections yet. Recorded in Nashville, TN, the record draws on many of the groups’ traditional strengths – indelible melodies, infectious hooks, explosive performances – even as the making of it pushed them far outside their comfort zone and forced them to take an unprecedented, nearly year-long break from touring.
