SUMMERSIDE. P.E.I. – An award-winning Canadian Bluegrass band will come to Summerside this November.
Tim and The Glory Boys have embarked on their Canadian tour and will kick of their East Coast leg on Nov. 3. Fans can expect the tour to be a spirited, family-friendly party at a local theatre, church or barn.
The band is comprised of lead singer Tim Neufeld, Colin Trask – dobro drums, Matt Stride – banjo, electric guitar and Jon Mushaluk – upright bass.
The independent recording artists based out of Abbotsford, B.C., released their freshman album in Sept. 2014.
“The Joy,” earned the group a JUNO nomination for Gospel Album of the Year. Their next album “Hootenanny!” was released in 2016 and won the 2017 JUNO award for Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the year. It featured the extremely popular track “Overhead Projector.”
They added to their trophy case by picking up two Covenant awards for Group of the Year and Artist of the Year.
To date, the group have sold over 35,000 records and their songs have been streamed over 6.5 million times.
On Nov. 7, Tim and The Glory Boys will come to Centre 150 in Summerside and the Grace Baptist Church in Charlottetown on Nov. 8.
Their upcoming releases look to build upon their success by adding more of a country vibe to their original bluegrass sound.
In addition to their recently released, full-length album, “The Buffalo Roadshow,” the group will release two country singles in the coming months as well as a country EP in the spring/summer of 2019.
“We’re thrilled with how the album turned out and we think our fans will really love how we’ve built upon the sound and message they’ve come to know us for with a bit more country flare,” said Neufeld of the new album.
“We think these are the kind of songs you hear on the radio and can’t help but crank up.”
“The Buffalo Roadshow,” is currently available for streaming and download on Apple Music and Spotify and will be available for purchase at shows. The first single, “Blessed,” will be released Oct. 5, 2018 on all streaming platforms.
The tour will continue all through 2019 and include over 120 concerts in Canada, 60 across the US and 20 in the UK.
