The Washboard Union returns to Grand Forks next Wednesday, Aug. 6, for an energetic live show that you won’t want to miss.

With four distinct voices, The Washboard Union entertains with one of the most captivating live shows on the road today. Touring  festivals across Canada, they have received multiple “best of the fest” nods from festivals like Rifflandia, Squamish Valley, and more.

With music that ranges in style from old country, new country, bluegrass and southern style rock, The Washboard Union delivers tight harmonies, with  an undeniably original sound including banjo, dobro, harp, guitar and fiddle.

Their set will include songs from their highly acclaimed first album, with some new material from their yet-to-be-released second album, scheduled for the fall.

Hosted by Alive Entertainment Group, the show takes place at the GEM Theatre at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are available in Grand Forks at Kocomo’s, Pharmasave and the GEM Theatre.  Advance tickets $12, $15 at the door; $a 40 special family rate is available only at the GEM Theatre.

Bring a friend, your partner, your kids, or your out-of-town guests, the cool comfort of the GEM is the place to be the evening of Aug. 6.
