Blue Rodeo bandmates Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor are set to host a fundraising concert in Kinmount, Ontario, a small cottage community north of Peterborough.
The concert will raise money for Minden Hills, which was hit by a massive flood in the spring that caused the region to declare a state of emergency. Now, it’s left with a hefty bill of more than $4 million to clean up the mess.
Blue Rodeo guitarist Greg Keelor has had a lifelong love affair with this region of Ontario, as it’s where he spent his summers at the family cottage on Big Bob Lake. It’s also where his current retreat resides. According to the band’s website, it didn’t take long for Keelor to agree to make music for those who share a similar connection to the region, and Cuddy soon followed. This evolved into what’s now known as “After the Flood.”
After the Flood will feature Cuddy and Keelor in rare appearances outside of Blue Rodeo, along with other musical guests who are set to perform during the first half of the concert.
The rain or shine event will be held at 6 p.m. on August 3, 2013. To buy tickets to the concert, visit madeinhaliburton.ca.
