Excitement was evident as sponsors took part in announcing this year’s Saturday night headliner for Steinbach’s 9th annual Summer in the City (SITC) Festival. Cindi Rempel Patrick, Stage and Production Chair for the festival, had the pleasure of announcing that the Saturday night rock concert will feature Tom Cochrane and Red Rider.

Steinbach Credit Union, the Main Stage Sponsor for SITC 2017 had the honour of issuing the first ticket to the Saturday night concert. Since the Cochrane hit, Life is a Highway is now turning 25, it seems fitting that Ledingham GM be the presenting sponsor for the Saturday night show.

Summer in the City is joining Canada in celebrating 150 years and what better way to do that than with one of Canada’s most iconic and celebrated musicians, Tom Cochrane and Red Rider. Songs that are etched on the history of the lives of Canadians, from Sinking Like a Sunset, The Boy Inside the Man, and Big League.

Tom says, “I’m a proud Canadian and the biggest reward though is when someone comes up and says this song or that song got me through some tough times or was part of the best times in my life, or when I fell in love that was our song.” We can all tell stories about those songs and are excited to watch them be performed live on Main Street on Saturday,
June 17th.

Tickets go on sale for the Saturday night concert on Thursday, April 20th online and will also be available for purchase April 26th at Earls Meat Market, Steinbach Arts Council and all three Ste. Anne Co-op locations in Steinbach.
