Kimto Stage At Waterworks Theatre Brings In Kevin Roy

Pipestone Flyer

Wetaskiwin and region is whirling in first class entertainment this summer; Loonstock, the RCMP Musical Ride, NASCAR racing, Jay Semko and Punchdrunk concert, Tour of Alberta, Wetaskiwin’s Summer Showcase, the RAM Harvest Festival, the Lakedell Fair and now, Act II of the Waterworks Theatre with Kimto Stage and Kevin Roy.

On Saturday, September 20th, 2014 at 7:30 pm, Wetaskiwin will be treated to music that is a pure blend of folk and country with traditional Bluegrass instrumentation and performed with the heart and soul of Kevin Roy’s earnest tenor voice.

During his performance, Roy will leave you with an evening of stories and song about how he left a life of certainty, and a professional career, in search of purpose and the open road.

“I am really excited to hit the road next week with my pal Matt Filopoulos, and we are looking forward to playing at the Wetaskiwin Theatre,” stated Roy. “I have always loved the hospitality and reception in the smaller towns of western Canada. Wetaskiwin has been a sign that I have seen time and time again in my travels down Highway 2. Although I was unable to add Wetaskiwin to my spring tour, I was really excited that the scheduling worked for this September show.”

Roy will likely extend his interests beyond the Waterworks Theatre during his visit to Wetaskiwin. “I am a history nerd. Thus, I was quite excited to find out Wetaskiwin is Cree for 'the hills where peace was made'… and found that snippet of info to be pretty cool.”

The mix of music and stories during the show will be entertaining.

“Our show will be personal and intimate. Regardless of the venue size, I have a way of making every show feel like it’s in the comfort of your living room with a small group of friends. I am a road dog and a storyteller. In my travels, I have met a lot of interesting folks, stayed in some precarious places like a haunted house, and had some highly unfortunate incidents such as multiple insurance claims on my car in one tour and cement being spilled inside my sunroof. I like to weave my experiences into my song writing and my live shows. My song writing and concerts are both earnest and heartfelt, but venture into a lighter side with some comedic balladry. I have been labelled by some as a, "Tall-Grass Poet."

The Wetaskiwin Waterworks Theatre is providing this community with top quality entertainment at very affordable prices.
