With two albums and a Juno nomination under their belts, Cold Creek County will be stomping into Springer Market Square as they headline this year’s second installment of Rockin’ the Square.
The six-piece band from just down the road has certainly built quite a following, with their country-rock party songs blaring out at bars and parties across Ontario. Having recently expanded, Cold Creek County promises to bring a bigger sound to the stage in Kingston. Their vocal harmonies are now front and centre, and their latest album, Homemade, shares a more “warm and reflective look at the people and places around them,” according to the band.
Opening up for Cold Creek County (or CCC, as they’re called by fans) is Kingston’s own Abby Stewart. A rising young star, Stewart has shared the stage with the likes of Dean Broady, Dallas Smith and Hunter Hayes in recent years. From her own original tunes, to covers of classic artists (like Dolly Parton) or contemporary superstars (like Taylor Swift), Stewart is sure to put on a great show here in her hometown.
Kick of the August long weekend in the heart of downtown Kingston with Rockin’ the Square, Friday, Aug. 3. The concert will begin at 8 p.m. Accessible seating will be available, with limited lawn chair seating available. The Utilities Kingston Water Buggy will also be on site, so bring your refillable water bottle to stay hydrated as you dance the night away.
