The only band officially licensed to play the music of Stompin’ Tom Connors – Whiskey Jack – bring their Stories & Songs of Stompin’ Tom to The Carleton for an intimate performance of their theatre show on Sunday, May 10th. Show time is 7 PM and advanced tickets are $35.
The “Stories & Songs of Stompin’ Tom” concert can best be described as a personalized, behind-the-scenes musical portrait of Stompin’ Tom Connors and his collaboration with Whiskey Jack. The show will include audio clips (recorded at the Savoy Theatre in 1993) of Tom being his outrageous self. The band weaves a narrative that features a carefully crafted blend of Connors’ greatest hits culled from their many years on the road with this Canadian icon. Whiskey Jack also perform songs from the country music legends who inspired him – singers who appeared with them on their Tommy Hunter Show segment in the 1980’s (Ol’ Back Porch, CBC-TV). This is a show that will entertain fans of all musical genres, that guarantees everyone will leave with a smile on their face.
This show is licensed by Tom’s family and Stompin’ Tom Ltd. Whiskey Jack is one of Stompin’ Tom’s premiere touring bands, who performed multiple national tours with Tom and has appeared on The Tommy Hunter Show each week in their own segment, The Ol’ Back Porch.
