|Steel City Rovers|
The Steel City Rovers (SCR), one of the fan favourite at last year’s Trenton Scottish Irish Festival, has been hand-picked by Alan Doyle to be the opening act for his concert on Sept. 9.
SCR will play during the Traditional Military Tattoo, kicking off the evening’s entertainment at the Trenton Amphitheatre. Following the tattoo, they will take the stage again, prior to Alan’s performance.
“We are thrilled to have Steel City Rovers back this year,” said Beth Cleaton, Chair of the Trenton Scottish Irish Festival. “They did an outstanding job in 2015 and were an incredible addition to the Tattoo. We can’t wait to see what they have in store for us this year.”
SCR has had a very successful year and was recently nominated for Folk/Traditional Recording of the Year in the Hamilton Music Awards. They have toured not only in Ontario but through the states.
During the Trenton Scottish Irish Festival, the Steel City Rovers will also take the stage on Saturday, Sept. 10, as the headliner in outdoor concert to close the festival.
