Jim Cuddy, one of Canada’s most beloved singer-songwriters as both a solo artist and as part of Blue Rodeo, will headline an intimate evening of music at the Almonte Old Town Hall on Sunday, October 20 to benefit the Almonte General Hospital Fairview Manor Foundation. Presented by KE Electrical Ltd., the evening will feature the Jim Cuddy Family Band, including Jim’s sons Devin Cuddy and Sam Polley, as well as the Prescott Brown Family Band, including Tracey Brown, Randall Prescott and their daughter Kelly Prescott. Tickets are $125 (all 200 tickets have SOLD OUT).
Tracey Brown and Randall Prescott are the driving forces behind the show. “We felt like we hadn’t done anything for the Hospital in a while,” says Prescott, “so Tracey and I approached our friend Jim and he was all-in right from the beginning. We live here so supporting quality health care close to home is really important to our family. Jim’s from a small town too so he totally gets it.”
Funds raised will support the Hospital’s current drive to bring a CT scanner to Almonte to benefit its patients and community members whose doctors feel that a CT scan is required to ensure a more informed diagnosis.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m, and the concert will begin at 7 p.m.
