Niagara This Week

The Trews to headline Port Colborne concert August 3

The first musical act at this year’s edition of Canal Days has been announced, and it’s one of Canada’s most popular bands.

Rockers The Trews will kick off the three nights of concerts, headlining the Friday, Aug. 3 show at Market Square. The Trews will be opened by Thunder Bay-based rock band Poor Young Things and the rock, bluegrass and celtic inspired music of the Nova Scotia-based band The Stanfields.

The 34th annual Canal Days Marine Heritage Festival will take place from Aug 3-6. The festival honours Port Colborne’s marine heritage as the southern terminus of the Welland Canal. Each night there are concerts at Market Square.

The Trews have a loyal fan base in Niagara, having won the Rock Search contest on St. Catharines based radio station CHTZ-FM in 2002.

Known for their high energy, high impact shows, The Trews are sure to play some of their hits, which include Poor Ol’ Broken Hearted Me, Highway of Heroes, and, from their latest album entitled Hope and Ruin, the single Misery Loves Company.

Canal Days is Port Colborne’s signature summer festival and has been designated as one of Ontario’s top 20 festivals by Festivals and Events Ontario. The rest of the acts are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
