Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor are coming to the Writers Festival!

 

Yes, believe it or not, it was 20 years ago this month –on October 26th, 1993– that the boys in Blue Rodeo launched Five Days In July .

 

The influential album (certified six times platinum now!) featured hits like 5 Days In May,  Hasn’t Hit Me Yet and Bad Timing – not to mention fan favourites like Dark Angel, Head Over Heels and more.

 

Well, Alan Neal of ALL IN A DAY wanted to celebrate those 20 years of Five Days , so he’s put together a special show that does just that: with JIM CUDDY and GREG KEELOR in the house!

 

Jim and Greg will join Alan on stage to talk about the influences of the album, dissect the songs, and reflect on what inspired them 20 years ago to create the sound.

 

Who was that couple who met in a hurricane?

 

How transfixed can you be by a streetlight, anyway?

 

Ever wondered what hotel they sing about in English Bay?

 

So many questions, and Jim and Greg will be there to answer them and perform tunes from the album, along with a few very special guests.

 

It’s a night of conversation, music, and a few surprises from the CBC vaults!

 

And maybe, just maybe, you'll get a preview of the new Blue Rodeo album IN OUR NATURE .

 

SEATING IS LIMITED.

 

PLUS: CBC’s ALL IN A DAY (3-6 p.m. weekdays on 91.5) will be giving away tickets as well. Tune in for details on how to win!
