Sam Roberts Band, Reklaws, Matthew Good to serenade Jackson-Triggs this summer

There will be two chances to see many of Canada’s top bands play amongst the vines at Jackson-Triggs Niagara Estate Amphitheater this summer, with the concert series kicking off in June and running through September. 

The Sam Roberts Band kicks off the season with two shows on June 7 and 8, followed by Matthew Good on June 21 and the Trews on June 22. David Wilcox and Bruce Cockburn will split the July 5-6 weekend, with the Strumbellas and July Talk rolling through the winery on July 12 and 13. The rest of the season includes a pair of weekends from the Reklaws (July 19-20) and the Sheepdogs (July 26-27) , Chantal Kreviazuk (Aug. 9), Matt Dusk (Aug. 10), a weekend with Bahamas (Aug. 16-17), Brett Kissel (Aug 22), Jim Cuddy Band (Aug 23), The Rural Alberta Advantage (Aug. 24) before Dwayne Gretzky closes the season Sept. 13-14. 

“This is another exciting summer that pairs award-winning Canadian wine with homegrown musicians, for an exceptional concert-going experience that you can’t find anywhere else,” says Craig Swanson, the winery’s estate manager. 

Starting the season with Sam Roberts Band is something of a tradition for the concert series, as the Montreal-based band has played the festival every summer for all 21 years. 

“We keep coming back for that close connection we feel with the crowd,” Sam Roberts himself says. “We’re excited to kick off the series this year with two performances to keep the tradition going.” 

Concertgoers also are able to book additional adventures at Jackson-Triggs, from winemaking tours and tastings to a full menu available at the winery this year. 

Members of the Great Estates Niagara Wine Club will have the ability to access tickets for this year’s concert series early, starting on April 2, before ticket sales open to the general public on April 4 through TIXR.com. 

Editor’s note: This list has been updated to reflect Matthew Good will be playing one night, June 21, and The Trews will be playing on June 22.
