Sometimes bands can create a timeless sound that can delight a wide audience with an exciting and fun stage presence. One of these musical acts will be coming to Canada's capital city this February with a show that will surely amaze travellers looking to rock out on their holiday in Ottawa.
The Sam Roberts Band has been a Canadian favourite for over a decade, scoring countless accolades and awards for their infectious sound and great concerts. As a Quebec native, Roberts spent some time touring with lesser-known bands before releasing a solo EP called Brother Down, which gained favour in the Canadian music scene. In 2003, the album was nominated for two Juno Awards and in the following year, Roberts' follow-up project called We Were Born in a Flame won the awards for Album and Artists of the Year. His hit singles throughout his career include Bridge to Nowhere and Don't Walk Away Eileen.
On Canada Day (July 1) 2011, the band was honoured to perform for Prince William and his bride Catherine during the huge festivities on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. They have also made appearances at several music award shows and summer music festivals throughout Canada.
Nowadays, the Sam Roberts Band has been touring throughout North America. Throughout the winter and early spring, they will be making stops at several big cities in Canada, including Montreal and Quebec City in February and Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island this March.
Travellers who would like to experience the music of the Sam Roberts Band live can do so at the National Arts Centre (NAC) on February 11th. Visitors can purchase tickets for Sam Roberts and other shows through the NAC website. This venue offers guests amazing acoustics and an intimate setting to marvel at the talents of the many famous Canadian and international acts that frequent the centre. Since the 1960s, this facility has provided an outlet for the arts in Ottawa to flourish and allow audience members to see some amazing music, theatrical performances and artworks.
