Kawartha Downs presents The Kawartha Country Music Festival, taking place at Kawartha Downs, 1382 County Rd 28, Fraserville, ON K0L 1V0, on Sunday, July 3, 2022, featuring Nate Haller, Jade Eagleson, and The Reklaws.

Kawartha Downs is proud to bring this timely outdoor concert to Fraserville, on Canada Day Weekend,
featuring three top-selling Canadian musicians, with a warm welcome home to fan favourite Jade
Eagleson, born and raised in Bailieboro, Ontario, less than 10km south of Kawartha Downs, Fraserville. Jade’s voice has a classic country sound that takes you back to the days of Johnny Cash, George Jones and Randy Travis and his career is skyrocketing since winning the 2019 RISING STAR AWARD at the Canadian Country Music Awards. He’s also YouTube’s Trending ‘Artist On The Rise’ – the first time a Canadian-signed artist in any genre has received this honour. Jade’s online presence has 6x more views than any other domestic country music video (65 million+)

As an extra-special bonus, concert-goers will be treated to a massive fireworks display befitting
Canada’s Birthday and celebrating Kawartha Downs 50th Anniversary. It will be seen for miles around.
Details about the Music Festival:
■ Gates open at 5pm, Concert starts at 6pm

The Featured Artists:
1. Jade Eagleson – his first homecoming show! Because Jade’s career is on such a high trajectory, this is an extra-special appearance as his fan base is quickly calling him further away from our region in the future.
Raised on his grandparents farm in Kawartha, Jade worked alongside his father tending crops and raising livestock. Jade only considered country music as a career when confronted with the challenge of keeping his family farm. He caught his break in 2017 when he earned his way into the Emerging Artist Showcase at Boots and Hearts, performing in front of more than 20,000 country fans. Jade’s timeless voice separated him from the pack and he walked away with top honours and was immediately signed to Universal Music Canada.
At just 27 years of age, Jade Eagleson has made his mark on the international country music
scene boasting:
★ 2019 CCMA Award for Rising Star
★ 185+ Million Global Streams and 83M+ views on YouTube since the debut of his
self-titled album (2020),
★ Two GOLD-certified and one PLATINUM-certified single
★ Most globally streamed debut album by a Canadian-signed country artist
★ landed three #1s at Canadian Country Radio (“Lucky,” “All Night To Figure It Out,” “More Drinkin’ Than Fishin’” feat. Dean Brody

2. Nate Haller, Nate’s debut track released earlier this year, grabbed the #2 spot at Canadian Country Radio and landed more ads than Canada’s own Justin Bieber and country- superstar Luke Bryan in April 2021.

3. The Reklaws, a duo with siblings Jenna and Stuart Walker, poised to be our country’s next superstars with 230M+ Global Streams.

★ They were the most nominated artists at last year’s CCMA Awards with 6 nominations, winning Group or Duo of the Year, and Top Selling Canadian Single (“Can’t Help Myself” with Dean Brody)
