Treat your sweetie to an early St Valentine’s evening of dinner, music and dancing with the Russell de Carle Trio at The Ranch Resort , Saturday February 10th.

As lead vocalist and bassist of iconic Canadian country roots band Prairie Oyster, Russell de Carle is no stranger to awards and accolades.

The 2008 CCMA Hall of Honour inductees have racked up an impressive list of JUNO and Canadian Country Music Awards, gold and platinum selling records and number one singles.

As a songwriter, Russell has also received two SOCAN Song of the Year Awards.

The Russell de Carle represents a new beginning, and it’s a natural extension of Russell’s talents as both a songwriter and interpreter of song.

Held together by equal measures of heartbreak and hope, and featuring performances from some of Canada’s most accomplished instrumentalists, the Russell de Carle music uniquely blends blues, jazz and R&B with a country swing.

We’re thrilled to have such incredible talent on stage warming up a chilly February evening and infusing the room with romantic ballads and toe-tapping two step dance tunes.

Tickets for the February 10th dinner and show are on sale now for $55 per person or $100 per couple.

To order tickets or for more information please contact The Ranch Resort at 705-277-1942  or email us at info@theranchresort.ca
