You won’t want to miss our headliner, Jim Cuddy Band, as they perform on the main stage at 8:30 p.m. As one half of one of Blue Rodeo's songwriting partnership, Jim Cuddy has one of the most recognizable voices in Canadian music thanks to hits such as Try, 5 Days in May and Bad Timing. As a group Blue Rodeo has sold over five million records world-wide, won countless JUNO awards, been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, received a star on Canada's Walk of Fame and Jim (along with songwriting partner Greg Keelor) was invested as Officers of the Order of Canada. 


In 1998, in between Blue Rodeo projects, Jim released his first solo album All In Time and hit the road with the Jim Cuddy Band featuring Colin Cripps on guitar, Anne Lindsay on the fiddle, Joel Anderson on the drums, Bazil Donovan on bass and Steve O’Connor on the keyboards.
