To everyone's surprise Greg Keelor & Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo gave a show at Boots and Hearts. If you are a Canadian or fan or Country/ Rock music you know who these guys are. Blue Rodeo is well known from coast to coast and have a loyal group of followers. When you are as well known as they are you can't come out on stage any ole way you have to make a real entrance.
Stage left gates opened up to a small army of security guards with a big rig hauling a flat bed rolled out. It stopped in front of the VIP area and up on this make shift stage were none other than Jim & Greg. It didn't take long at all for the fans to recognize them and surround the entire truck. They only spoke for a minute and then broke out into some of their classic songs. The audience loved it. Just two men & a couple of instruments had the fans loving every minute of it. They were a very fitting surprise for such a great event like the Boots and Hearts Festival.
