“Music heals,” LaBrash said Thursday in announcing his upcoming summer tour “The Hell or High Water Charity Tour … the show must go on!”

“The people of Saskatchewan are ready to begin to heal. This is one way we are able to give back and support the people and communities in Saskatchewan.”

The one exception is the Canada Day show at Regina Beach which will be a boat-in concert.

Each show will shine the spotlight on a local organization, with part of the proceeds going to the organization.

During LaBrash’s 2020 drive-in concerts in Saskatchewan, thousands of dollars and more than 300 pounds of food were raised for 12 Saskatchewan charities.
