WINDSOR, N.S. — A member of the Canadian super group Blackie and the Rodeo Kings will be ready to rock Mermaid Theatre this April as part of a new solo tour.

Stephen Fearing is slated to perform in Windsor April 7 at 8 p.m.

Lisa Gleave, the general manager of Mermaid Theatre, said it's a show music lovers won't want to miss.

“I saw his showcase last year and was blown away with how he engaged with the audience, how intimate his show was, his musicianship,” said Gleave.

The musician, a multiple award-winning and nominated performer, has had a long, celebrated career. He's collaborated with a number of artists, including Bruce Cockburn, Shawn Colvin, Sarah McLachlan, Richard Thompson and Margo Timmons. Since 1996, he regularly performs with Colin Linden and Tom Wilson as part of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings.

“Getting on stage is the fun part, especially when the adrenaline kicks in,” Fearing said in a press release. “People want to escape and be taken on a journey. I build my shows so they do just that.”

Tickets cost $23 in advance, $25 at the door.

“His songwriting is wonderful; his guitar playing is great,” said Gleave. “I think that music fans aren't going to want to miss this one.”
