The Brown Family
The Frenchman River Gospel Jam Board of Directors is pleased to announce Paul Brandt, Link Union and The Brown Family as the 2017 FRGJ Headliners for the August Long Weekend from August 4 - 6, 2017 at Crescent Point Wickenheiser Centre in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan.
The weekend festivities have become a popular attraction in Southwest Saskatchewan. From its inception 26 years ago on the outdoor stage in the Frenchman River Valley, the Jam developed into an indoor event which has showcased artists such as Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers, The Oak Ridge Boys, Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder, George Canyon, Jason Blaine, Diamond Rio, High Valley, Brad Johner and the Johner Boys, and our very own Hunter Brothers.
The lineup for 2017 promises to continue the tradition. Friday evening will be a truly family affair when The Browns hit the stage with their gospel music. The musical stylings of Shelly, Michaela, Adam, and Andrew exude excitement on the stage and offer a life-changing experience to all who hear them. The Browns deliver the powerful message of the gospel through word and song that engage audiences of all ages.
Saturday evening, enjoy the fresh sounds of Link Union. Since 2002 this multi-award-winning band has performed in over two-thousand venues across the United States and Canada entertaining thousands with their fusion of old time musical instruments, stunning vocals and modern beats. Known as a band with 18 instruments, 7 members and a 45 ft bus, there will be something for every musical taste.
On Sunday afternoon, the stage will come alive with Paul Brandt, the most awarded male Canadian Country Music artist in history. Paul is well known for hits like “Leavin’”, “Alberta Bound”, “Didn’t Even See The Dust”, and his remake of the C.W. McCall classic “Convoy”. FRGJ is proud to welcome this gifted artist, who is known for using his music as a platform to create a positive impact on the lives of people in communities around the world. As an added bonus, the Sunday afternoon concert will open with the Hunter Brothers, winners of the 2017 SCMA Emerging Artist of the Year Award.
In addition to well-known artists, FRGJ hosts a free stage throughout the weekend, boasting a wide variety of talented local musicians along with up-and-coming artists from across the country.
The FRGJ Board of Directors invites you to join them and fans from all over the Prairies to enjoy a weekend of great music, great food, and great company.
