Kingston’s Greg Ball Opening for The Trews at Rock in the Square

Published on: 2013/08/12 - in Featured Releases

Revered Canadian rockers The Trews are performing as part of the Grand Theatre Presents Rock in the Square Series on Friday, August 16th at 8pm.

But while the band has built its reputation belting their high-energy, arena-ready rock anthems from stages across the globe, this time out, audiences will get a glimpse of a different side of this multi-faceted foursome.

The Trews – lead vocalist/guitarist Colin MacDonald, guitarist John-Angus MacDonald, drummer Sean Dalton, and bassist Jack Syperek – will perform an unplugged acoustic show. “We’ve always had this other side of us, which is three acoustic guitars and a hand drum,” says Colin MacDonald. “Changing things up helps keep us inspired and gives us a chance to showcase some of the intricacies of our music.”

Opening this performance will be Greg Ball, a Kingston-based singer-songwriter. Originally from Stratford, Ontario, Ball adopted Kingston as his home town in the early 2000s. ┬áHis latest album ‘Mr. Rightplace’ was produced by Paul Langlois and recorded at the famous Bath House Studio in Bath, Ontario where The Tragically Hip, Sarah Harmer, Blue Rodeo and indeed The Trews, have recorded.

The Grand Theatre Presents The Trews Acoustic Show and Greg Ball live in Springer Market Square on Friday, August 16th at 8pm and is supported by media partner K Rock.

Admission is free and open to all ages. The Utilities Kingston Quench Buggy will be open for free water, so the community is encouraged to bring refillable water bottles.
