PETAWAWA – Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo fame will play the Evergreen Stage. The Town of Petawawa was selected amongst 22 other Ontario communities to host a free ONtour concert stop dubbed, “the soundtrack of Summer ’17.” An initiative of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, the ONtour concert series will showcase some of Ontario’s diverse musical talent.

“We are absolutely delighted to have been chosen to host the wrap-up concert of the ONtour series and to welcome Jim Cuddy back to Petawawa, almost ten years later, for another crowd pleasing performance,” stated Mayor Bob Sweet.

Jim Cuddy is a well-known Canadian solo artist and lead singer of Blue Rodeo. Meghan Patrick is a country singer-songwriter whose debut album was “Grit & Grace.” Jessica Mitchell is a country music rising star whose song “Workin’ on Whiskey” reached the top of the country charts.
