One of Canada’s best known country singers is coming to Moose Jaw to perform at Mosaic Place next year.
Alberta-born country superstar Paul Brandt, the most awarded male Canadian country artist in history, will perform at Mosaic Place on March 12 at 7 p.m.
He will perform songs from his latest release Give It Away, which features revisited versions of Brandt’s international smash hits I Do and My Heart Has A History.
Brandt’s first big break was in 1996 with My Heart has a History, which hit number one in Canada and made him the first Canadian male country artist to reach the Billboard Top Ten in the US since Hank Snow in 1974.
In April 2010, Brandt, who has nine albums to date, received an honorary doctorate degree from Briercrest College and Seminary in Caronport and performed at the graduation ceremony.
Doug Campbell, business development director for Mosaic Place said he expects to see a fantastic show from Brandt.
“Obviously this is our first major country act that will be coming into Mosaic Place. We are very pleased we were able to get an artist like Paul Brandt, who is one of the most awarded male country artists in history.
“It’s going to be a top-notch show from one of Canada’s top notch country acts.
“He has just released a new album called Give It away so there will be songs from the new album but I would also expect to hear some of his songs that put him on the map,” Campbell said.
Tickets for the concert start at $36.75 plus administration fees and will go on sale at 11 a.m on Friday.
