A favourable union

Washboard Union draws a big crowd

LIVERPOOL – Queens Place Emera Centre in Liverpool was sold out for a special concert on June 15.

The headliner was Vancouver band The Washboard Union. 

Autumn Rae Carver, from Middlefield, opened the show as a special guest. She stepped on stage with a beaming smile and began to play the song Jolene, by Dolly Parton. She ended her set with a song by country music artist Terri Clark. Carver joined Clark on stage during the South Shore Idol event in Bridgewater in July 2017.

Jason Benoit, a country music artist from Newfoundland, opened for The Washboard Union. Benoit has had four top 30 hits. 

The Washboard Union took the stage last, and almost immediately concertgoers on the floor of the arena began to dance. The band’s website says, “The Washboard Union have defied classification and become one of the most exciting and talked about bands in country music.”
