Three Great Artists Connect for an Intimate Evening of Country Music

The Troubadours - Duane Steele, Jake Mathews, and Wyatt Easterling - at Horizon Stage - March 7

How often can you see not just one but three chart-topping, award-winning, highly acclaimed country musicians performing together in an intimate local venue? Horizon Stage is pleased to offer just such an opportunity by presenting The Troubadours on Saturday, March 7. Duane Steele, Jake Mathews, and Wyatt Easterling are each respected country singer/songwriters in their own right. Together, they are The Troubadours, offering an Up Close and Personal evening of song, storytelling, and fellowship.

Duane Steele has been part of Canada’s country music scene since 1984. Hits like “Anita Got Married”, “Stuck on Your Love” and “Two Names on an Overpass” won him the hearts of country music fans in the mid-90’s. He won two Canadian Country Music Awards, and was nominated for multiple Juno Awards. Duane’s pure voice and natural stage presence make his live shows a must-see.

Also a multiple award-nominee, Jake Mathews has been a fixture of the Canadian Country Music scene for over a decade. He has released three solo albums and toured with his brother Gil Grand to raise money for Ronald MacDonald House Charities. Jakes songs “A Woman and a Song” and “Beer Necessities”, climbed the charts in 2013 and still receives generous air-play on radio stations across the country. His newest single, "In Our Own Backyard", is now in rotation on CMT.

Wyatt Easterling is a Nashville singer, songwriter, and producer with deep folk and Americana ties. His career has spanned four decades and has been filled with chart-topping songs - including cuts with Dierks Bentley, Joe Diffie, Billy Joe Royal, Paul Thorn, Neal McCoy, Sons of the Desert, and Robbie Hecht. Wyatt is now focusing his energy on bringing his music and stories directly to his audience. His intricate guitar work and smooth voice draws in listeners as his songs take them through poignant moments pulled from the world that surrounds us.

Join Duane, Jake, and Wyatt for an intimate and refreshing evening of country music. This special songwriters circle will showcase their individual material and styles while still leaving room for musical spontaneity, informal interplay, and camaraderie among performers and their audience members. Throughout the evening they will take turns lending their voices, varied experiences, and observations to create a fun and friendly concert atmosphere.
