SHAWVILLE – Starting on Thursday, July 14, there will be three days of live country music and camping at the Armstrong Heritage Farm just outside Shawville, when the Lions Club Country Jamboree returns. “Its been three years since our last Jamboree,” explained organizer Ed Walsh. “So, the members of the Shawville Lions Club are glad to be doing this again.

The Shawville Jamboree is a tradition that has been going on for nineteen years, and now it’s back.”

Opening night is an “open mic” event. Local musicians are invited to get up on the stage and jam, sing, or both. “There will be a house band, a group of musicians who
are up there to support the players,” explained Walsh. “We know there are a lot of talented people in the area, and we want to include them and give our locals some exposure.”

I know this is going to be a great Jamboree. Armstrong Farm is close to all the amenities in Shawville, and the location is perfect for a country music event.”

“We are excited about our lineup,” continued Walsh. “On Friday night we are featuring Tammy Wood and Stephen Drinkwater, and Saturday is Dan Paul Rogers and we’ve got a lot more musicians playing throughout the event. It’s going to be three days packed with musical acts. A lot of renowned artists are coming to Shawville to play.”

There are still camping spaces available. Tickets, weekend passes and camping reservations may be purchased in advance at https://shawvillecountryjamboree.ca/ or calling Ed Walsh at 819-647-3695.
