Even though The Trews were in the Gas City in May of this year they are set to rock the Hat once again on September 19 as part of a free concert for the Medicine Hat College Homecoming. Gates open to the public at 6 but the show doesn’t start until 7. The organizers wish to remind potential concert goers that although there is plenty of space for the show admittance will occur on a first come, first served basis, so get there early!

I had the pleasure of seeing The Trews in concert when they visited as the opening act for Nickelback a few years ago. I hadn’t ever heard of them before going to that concert, and looking back I wish I would have paid more attention, because since then I have become quite a fan of their music. These Canadian rockers sport a sound that is distinct in that they have jazzy feel to a lot of their music, utilizing such instruments as the bagpipes, mandolin, brass, piano and many more.

I personally enjoyed their first album more than their most recent one, however now that I have been given the opportunity to see them I will definitely be making myself a fixture at their show in two weeks. There will be a beer garden on site for those of age to enjoy and limited parking so please try to carpool or use public transit if possible.  Bring a blanket, leave your pet at home, and get ready to enjoy a phenomenal free concert in the south soccer field at the Medicine Hat College Saturday, September 19.
