Conrad Bigknife is an award winning vocalist that has his feet firmly planted in tradition and road dust on his boots. His father gave him the boots, and instilled a love of Country music that is gritty and real and true.
When we think of the names that have had a hand in forming Country music into what it is today, there are those that come to mind immediately. Conrad, along with his band, have put this show together to pay tribute to those artists and the songs we know and love. It's about building the future while respecting the past, and it's a whole lot of fun.
Regina-based Andino Suns’ culturally hyphenated music combines the sizzling Andean sun with the wide expanses of the Canadian prairies. Their genre-defying music is steeped in their cherished Chilean heritage, combining traditional Andean instrumentations with modern Latin grooves to produce a signature sound that’s truly their own. Rich vocals proclaim the band’s worldview of political activism, hope and love. Western Canadian Music Award winners in 2017 for World Artist of the Year, Andino Suns have performed for festival audiences throughout North America since 2013. They have three albums under their belts, and a single, Tiburón, released in Fall 2017.
