Country Boy         Friday & Saturday

Louis’ Pub

One listen to the music of Swift Current’s own Colter Wall and it’s hard to deny the similarities to the hard living music of icons like Johnny Cash.

Wall is out on the road on an exhaustive North American tour supporting his first full length album and he’s stopping in Saskatoon for a pair of dates. Officially these shows are sold out but stay tuned to social media and you may just be able to snap up a ticket or two. Tickets are $25.
