HAMILTON, CANADA (June 20, 2016): One of America’s biggest alt-country stars, Ryan Adams, will be giving his only appearance in Ontario this summer at the 2016 Harvest Picnic on Friday August 26th. Other performers on the bill include singer-songwriters Jeremy Fisher, Tomi Swick and Mike Trebilcock. More acts will be announced in the coming days. Show field gates open at 5pm and show starts at 6pm.
Ryan Adams, a multiple-Grammy-nominated singer songwriter from Jacksonville, NC, released a veritable onslaught of critically acclaimed and commercially successful albums over the past 16 years. Adams heads up his own PAX-AM label through which he has released numerous singles and albums including the 15-LP exclusive vinyl edition of his 2012 Live After Deaf box set that sold out its entire pressing in eight minutes. In Fall 2015, he released his full-album cover of Taylor Swift’s 1989 with seven songs from the album charting on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs.
Adams has toured extensively giving stand-out performances at major festivals around the world such as Glastonbury, Roskilde, and Coachella. He has also produced albums for Jenny Lewis, La Sera, Fall Out Boy, Willie Nelson, Jesse Malin and has collaborated with Norah Jones, America, Cowboy Junkies, Beth Orton and many others.
Harvest Picnic Producer/Founder, Jean-Paul Gauthier, stated, “Adams is one of the most dynamic, hardworking, songwriters and performers of our time.” Gauthier continued, “We are grateful and extremely excited that he chose to perform at the Harvest Picnic for his only date in Ontario this summer.”
