The Rankin Family will be at the Tidemark on Sun. Jan 29 during their intimate acoustic tour.

Reworking their new and time-honoured hits, Raylene, Jimmy, Cookie and Heather Rankin will bring a bit of the famous down-home kitchen party to the stage.

Fare Thee Well Love, Rise Again and North Country are included amongst selections like Never Alone and Straight Into Love, from their most recent album These Are The Moments.

Sharing the stories behind their greatest hits, pairing back the instrumentation and uncovering the vocal complexities of each song, makes this tour a rare event.

The Acoustic Tour will allow audiences to experience the raw talent of the group that has captivated fans worldwide – a talent that has transcended hardships and trying times and a talent that only gets better with time.

Jimmy will be opening the show. He has had a successful solo recording and touring career. Named Roots Artist of the Year at this year’s Canadian Country Music Awards, Jimmy released his fourth solo album Forget About The World this past March.

Since beginning his solo career in 2001 with the release of his debut Song Dog, Jimmy has developed an extended fan base and has collected over 32 awards, including a Juno for Best Country Artist, a SOCAN award for Single of the Year, and was twice named Entertainer of the Year at the East Coast Music Awards.

With the support of their fans and the success of their 2007 Reunion Tour, the Rankin Family continues to perform and remains one of Canada’s most celebrated musical families.

They are the recipients of six Juno Awards, four SOCAN Awards, three Canadian Country Music Awards and 15 East Coast Music Awards, including the Directors Special Achievement Award in 2010.

Tickets cost  $58 and can be pick up at the Tidemark. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.
