Burton Cummings is the voice of a generation and is widely considered as one of the finest rock voices in Canadian history. His musical creations continue to resonate with fans both old and new and he has continued to uphold his impressive reputation as a singer, songwriter, and performer.
His songs are timeless and instantly recognizable by hundreds of thousands of fans. Stand Tall, These Eyes, Break it to Then Gently, I’m Scared, Laughing, Share the Land, I will play a Rhapsody, Albert Flasher, Timeless Love, Fine State of Affairs, You Saved My Soul, and My Own Way to Rock.
With Canada’s original rock ‘n’ roll superstars, the Guess Who, Burton scored an unprecedented string of international hit singles and albums with other songs like American Woman, No Time, Star Baby, Sour Suite, Orly, Glamor Boy, Dancin’ Fool, Clap for the WolfMan, and other songs already mentioned.
These special intimate evenings with Cummings and his band will cover some of his career as both a solo artist and his work with the Guess Who.
One thing that sometimes is forgotten about the magic of all this, is that Cummings is not only a great vocalist he is a superb musician as well. So much so, that former Beatles member Ringo Starr invited Burton to play keyboards in his band during one of his tours just a few years ago.
Just another accolade to add to a very impressive collection which includes multiple Juno Awards, dozens of gold and platinum records and a place in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and on Canada’s Walk of Fame.
His song American Woman was acclaimed the No 1 single in Canadian music history in a recent best selling book The Top 100 songs of all time.
You will not want to miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to see Rock Royalty. Burton Cummings and his band Unplugged and “Electric” in the Kootenays, in acoustically sound comfortable theatres like the Charles Bailey in Trail and the Key City Theatre in Cranbrook.
Burton Cummings and band is presented by the Kootenay Concert Connection, the Vista Radio Network, and the Key City theatre.
