Spectacular summer line up for Cruickshank Amphitheatre


Ready your lawn chairs and your sunshades because there are going to be some great times at the Cruickshank Amphitheatre this summer.

The Amphitheatre board has just announced that River City Junction, local group Ruckus and Ridin’ Shotgun are confirmed at the theatre. These talented musicians will be putting on some memorable concerts this summer for area audiences. 

And there is absolutely no admission price. The performances are all free.

River City Junction kicks off the summer series on Saturday, July 21. This Canadian Blues-Rock band is making a real reputation for itself, especially with the release in 2010 of their album Convergence. Caroline Addison, Jason Fryer and Tom Joanisse are talented and highly accomplished musicians who claim “music is a way of life.” They blend old school Chicago Blues, Funk, Motown and classic rock in a cocktail that is “raw, organic and uplifting.” Look for great songs like “Hold On,” “State of Grace’ and “Better Days.”

Ruckus steps on the stage on Saturday, July 28. Formed by some outstanding local musicians, Ruckus promise a rollicking and entertaining afternoon of Irish and East Coast music. There will be music for every taste.

The concert series winds up on Saturday, August 11, with the return of the popular country group, Ridin’ Shotgun. A hit with previous audiences, the band features Terry McClelland and Danika Ellson, and four back-up artists. With the motto, “not your Grandma’s country,” the band brings audiences some of country’s newest and most exciting sounds, including songs from stars like Carrie Underwood and Sugarland. Ridin’ Shotgun promises a foot-stomping, get up and dance performance. 

Every concert at the Amphitheatre this summer will feature draws for some very generous prizes. All concerts begin at 3 p.m., finishing at 5 p.m.

Bring your chairs, your blankets and your friends and take in some of the best entertainment of the summer at the Cruickshank Amphitheatre, down at the beautiful Morrisburg waterfront.
