The Troubadours Tour lands in Innisfail

Featuring Jake Mathews, Wyatt Easterling, Lisa Brokop, Paul Jefferson, and Duane Steele, the Troubadours Tour hits Innisfail’s Century Theatre Nov. 1.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the show at 7:30 p.m.

Between the members of the tour, they have won and/or been nominated for 35 Country Music Awards and 18 Juno Awards, not to mention they have all co-written with the ‘who’s who’ of country and Americana music. 



The evening is similar to a festival workshop stage, organizers say. The five singers will be on the stage at once, taking turns to lend voice to their varied experiences and observations. This atmosphere encourages informal interplay and camaraderie among performers and audience alike.


Mathews is a Canadian country artist with a unique combination of a traditional and modern sound. He has enjoyed great success at radio with numerous top 20 hits and has received several Canadian Country Music Award nominations.

He released his latest CD Red Tail Lights last year.

Steele has been mainstay on Canada’s country charts since 1993. He has also been a regular presence at the CCMA and Juno awards with a total of 15 nominations from 1996 to date.

Originally from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Easterling’s music reflects the storytelling tradition that defines that part of the country’s musical heritage.

Recently, he won the Smoky Mountains Songwriter Festival’s Songwriting Contest in the pop/rock/folk category. Vancouver native Lisa Brokop burst onto the scene in the early 1990s, and has been a fixture on the country scene.

With seven CDs and an impressive resume of writing credits, Brokop has earned her place as one of Canada’s most respected singers and songwriters. She has garnered an incredible 15 nominations for the Canadian Country Music Association’s Female Artist of the Year, with hits such as I’d Like to See You Try, Hey, Do You Know Me and Break It.

Finally, Jefferson followed his heart to Nashville where he soon made a name for himself with the hits Check Please and I Might Just Make It from his 1996 debut self-titled CD. He is also an accomplished songwriter, having penned songs for Keith Urban, Buddy Jewell, and the number one hit from Aaron Tippin That’s As Close As I’ll Get to Loving You.

Tickets are available by calling 403-227-0044 or at the Century Theatre.
