Event description

Description

Multi-JUNO winner Stephen Fearing (co-founder of Blackie and The Rodeo Kings) and world-renowned Canadian luthier Linda Manzer (clients include Pat Metheny, Bruce Cockburn, Carlos Santana, and Gordon Lightfoot) present The 30 Year Cowpoke -- a unique, one-night-only event to celebrate the legacy of Stephen’s 30-year-old Manzer Cowpoke acoustic guitar, delve into the artistry behind the two-year process of creating its replacement, and play the new Cowpoke for the first time in front of an audience. Toronto radio host Tom Allen will emcee the evening.

Different from a standard concert format, the 90-minute show features a combination of memories, music, and a guitar making demonstration. Aficionados of the finest custom guitars are in for a rare treat as Manzer will discuss the meticulous design and hand-crafting process for the 1989 original Cowpoke and its 2019 counterpart. Beloved for his on-stage storytelling, Fearing will share the poignant tale of how a chance meeting with a fan led to a series of events that, after the fan’s death, forced Stephen to make a difficult decision that resulted in the creation of his new Cowpoke and plans to retire the original.

A limited number of VIP Reception packages are also available and include admission to the show (see details below).
