Pavilion Summer Concert Series at the Elora Centre for the Arts: Featuring The Tradition

July 7 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Our second free concert in the series, we are thrilled to introduce you to The Tradition!  Come on out on a Sunday afternoon and enjoy some old-timey country music in the yard at the Elora Centre for the Arts!  The Tradition plays songs from the likes of Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, and many other country music heroes.

The voice of Douglas Richard Sinclair ranges from sombre lows to moonshine highs. Sinclair performs alongside his hired guns on electric guitar, bass, and drums. The Tradition satisfies the soul’s search for sounds from a simpler time.

The band began their ramblin’ in 2017. They performed at several venues and festivals around Southern Ontario. The band honed in praises from audiences at The Horseshoe Tavern, Goodlot Brewery, Elora Brewing Co, Skol House, Acton Leathertown Festival, Georgetown Craft Beer Festival, to name a few.

The Tradition recorded “Live at Lincoln County” on December 5th 2021. The band recorded live off the floor with John Dinsmore at Lincoln County Social Club in Toronto. Mitch Fillion of Southern Souls captured two of the performances on video. The Tradition upholds the spirit of old-timey country music: grit, three chords, and the truth.

Presented by our amazing community partners at Sorbara Group of Companies, Tribute Homes, and The County of Wellington, The Centre Wellington Community Foundation, and the Township of Centre Wellington‘s Tourism Marketing Fund.
