With special guest acclaimed indigenous singer-songwriter Kevin Bennett

Canadian country music star is heading to Newcastle this month! Gord has won more Canadian Country Music Association awards than Shania Twain, they call him Canada’s answer to George Strait and he has just completed a 28-date sold-out Canadian Tour. The country superstar is performing on the main stage alongside Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker and Kelsea Ballerini at this year’s CMC Rocks QLD Festival and he is heading to Newcastle on March 22 at Lizottes with his multi-award winning six-piece band of Canada’s finest musicians. His special guest on his March tour is the legendary Aussie singer songwriter and multi-Golden Guitar winner Kevin Bennett.

Gord Bamford was born in Australia in the Victorian country town of Traralgon. He was raised by his mum in Canada after leaving his alcoholic father in Australia at five-years of age. In recent years, he has reunited with his dad who is now a Pastor living in Brisbane. Gord’s life story even sounds like a country song!

“I feel a strong connection with Australia,” says Gord. “I have loved the last few trips down there and the fans have been so welcoming to me and my music. I am going to keep coming back to build my fanbase in Australia because I want to tour regularly down under. It is always great to hook-up with my dad now that we are in each other’s lives again, so that is an added bonus to my trips to Australia. I guess you could say Australia really is my second home and I am looking forward to my shows in Oz this month.”

Don’t miss one of Canada’s favourite male music artists in concert with the exceptional talents of his special guest Kevin Bennett.
