Event Notes

The Brockville Arts Centre Presents:
HARVEST HIGHWAY - Jimmy Rankin Trio

Canadian folk and country songwriter, Jimmy Rankin, brings a host of his award-winning hits to the BAC stage!

In his early years with Cape Breton’s favourite musical brood—Mabou’s The Rankin Family—Jimmy established himself as a torchbearer of East Coast folk and one of the most well-respected songwriters in Atlantic Canada, with songs like “Mull River Shuffle” enduring for decades through traditional renditions at Nova Scotia weddings and dance nights, and through the countless cover versions that pay homage to the Rankins. In 2013, CBC listeners voted the 1994 JUNO Award-winning single “Fare Thee Well” the #1 East Coast song of all time, and it was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters’ Hall of Fame in 2020. If you live outside the maritimes—in Canada or internationally—and know the sound of East Coast folk music, it’s likely thanks to Jimmy.

His reputation as a compelling writer and hitmaker spills into his solo work as well, and he’s been a chart fixture since his 2001 debut album Song Dog, racking up awards for songs like “Followed Her Around,” “Midnight Angel,” “Morning Bound Train,” “Slipping Away,” and “Here In My Heart.” With his solo and family band work, Jimmy has thus far earned five JUNO Awards, seven Canadian Country Music Awards, and a staggering 27 East Coast Music Awards.
