Arts & Entertainment Featured

You just can’t stop the music!

The Song Dog, Jimmy Rankin, is coming to town to do two small shows.

The Riverfront Jubilee is bringing the multi-award winning singer/songwriter to Pictou Lodge on September 4 and 5.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring Jimmy Rankin out for a show in our community, especially since our main event was cancelled due to COVID-19,” says Jillian George, Jubilee Board.

“The opportunity has also allowed us to work with and support a local business all while bringing Jubilee fans what they like best – local live music!”

Rankin is a member of the musical Cape Breton Rankin family who has enjoyed a career of 30-plus years with his family as well as on his own. Rankin’s solo and Rankin Family awards include five Junos, 27 East Coast Music Awards, nine SOCAN top radio play Awards, seven Canadian Country Music Awards, two Music NS Awards, and two Canadian Radio Music Awards.

Tickets will go on sale today at 4 p.m., via TicketPro for $50 each: https://secure.ticketpro.ca/?lang=en&aff=ngrj#def_1368267303. Each show has a 50 person capacity to allow for physically distancing. Seats will be in pairs. Ticket and room packages are also available via the Pictou Lodge.
