As the sounds of summer float down the Moose Jaw River at Kiwanis River Park, the K+S Potash Canada Wakamow Jamboree prepares for a day of food, drink, games, and music on a stage set for five live acts. Charlie Major headlines at 9 p.m. with his blue-collar brand of country rock. Over the course of six albums and three Juno awards, the songwriter has consistently communed with crowds in songs about love and loss, sung over upbeat rhythms and chords from a guitar he plays with the unfettered joy of a child who's just realized nobody is watching that chocolate cake. Jason Plumb and The Willing warm up the stage for him with a roots-rock jangle most recently showcased on this year's album, All Is More Than Both. At 6 p.m. tunes from Johnny, Merle, Waylon, and Willie all fly from trio The Barley Boys.
Samara Yung begins the musical festivities at 3 p.m. with a feel-good formula of pop-country songs. Though she calls Saskatchewan home, she pays tribute to the good-time traditions of a city 3,000 kilometres away in her single "Mardi Gras", which can often be seen on CMT. Fellow Saskatchewan native Chris Henderson, whose career kicked off when he won the 620 CKRM country-talent search, also plays. Along with the performances, the jamboree will spill out onto a midway with games, a pizza-eating competition, and a beer garden with frothy brews.
