The Washboard Union

Presented by Shenkman Arts Centre Presents

Calling all country fans! Join one of Canada’s preeminent country bands and start 2022 with music and dancing. Step-brothers Aaron Grain and Chris Duncombe along with their best friend David John Roberts make The Washboard Union. Their shared love for the art of songwriting and storytelling has resonated with audiences from North America to Europe and they are coming to Ottawa!

This award-winning band has been certified Gold twice in Canada, has had seven Top 10 hits and numerous top 20 hits, and was the first country band to win the JUNO Award for Breakthrough Group of the Year; a multi-genre category. Having shared the stage with Old Dominion, Keith Urban, Reba McEntire, Dwight Yoakam, Jason Aldean, Zac Brown Band, Thomas Rhett, Lonestar, and more, their irresistible blend of roof-raising anthems and poignant ballads, coupled with their impeccable three-part harmony and top-notch musicianship makes this band a must-see.
