CONTEST – Jose Gonzalez Cross-Canada tour

Photo by Fredrik Egerstrand

That Swedish-Argentinian troubadour Jose Gonzalez is not stopping in Toronto on his upcoming cross-Canada tour might seem odd at first, but considering he’s visited us twice in the past half year – last December and this past March – it’s reasonable to think that maybe he’s just a bit tired of us.

Instead, he’s bringing his 2007 release In Our Nature to other parts of our fine nation, mixing up appearances at festivals like Sled Island in Calgary and Bluesfest in Ottawa with his own shows in Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Quebec City and Halifax. And it’s to some of these shows that, courtesy of Ideal Friends, I have some passes to give away. Who says I don’t take care of the rest of the country?

I’ve got one pair of passes to dole out for each of the following shows:

  • Thursday June 26th at St. Matthews Church in Halifax, NS
  • Monday June 30th at the Broadway Theatre in Saskatoon, SK
  • Tuesday July 1st at the Park Theatre in Winnipeg, MB

And to make sure the rest of you don’t feel neglected, six copies of In Our Nature on CD plus posters for additional winners – Canadians only, please. To enter, send me an email at contests AT with “I want to see Jose Gonzalez in <INSERT NAME OF CITY>” in the subject and your full name in the body if you want to go to the shows or “I want the Jose Gonzalez CD” in the subject and your mailing address in the body if you’re seeking the album. Contest closing dates are rolling – for the Halifax show, have your entry in to me by midnight, June 24. For Saskatoon, June 26 and for Winnipeg, June 29. For the CDs, contest closes at midnight, June 30. Complicated enough? Good.

Gonzalez recently got up on a rooftop to play a song for while The Hartford Courant and Norwich Evening News have interviews.
