Blackie and the Rodeo Kings

Fri, Sep 30 |  Banjo Stage  |  1:10 - 1:55pm

Blackie and the Rodeo Kings got their start in Hamilton, Ontario, when Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing, and Tom Wilson came together to record High or Hurtin’: The Songs of Willie P. Bennett, a tribute to the great Canadian songwriter. They figured it was a one-off project, but they keep coming back, most recently with King of This Town. As Fearing says, “When we play together and sing together as Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, something magical happens. We haven’t asked ourselves what it is all these years, and we’re not going to start now.”
