A familiar face will kick off Jackson-Triggs’ annual summer concert series in June.

Sam Roberts Band will open the series with shows on June 7 and 8 at the Niagara-on-the-Lake winery’s amphitheatre. 

“We keep coming back for that close connection we feel with the crowd,” said Roberts, a six-time Juno Award winner as a solo artist. “We’re excited to kick-off the series this year with two performances and keep the tradition going.” 

Roberts burst onto the Canadian music charts back in 2002 and formed Sam Roberts Band in 2011.

He scored his first Juno wins in 2004 on the back of his “We Were Born in a Flame” album, winning Album of the Year and Rock Album of the Year. He picked up a third award for Artist of the Year.

This year’s appearance will be the 21st time Roberts has performed at Jackson-Triggs since the concert series began back in 2001.

The series took a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic but returned to the Niagara Stone Road winery in 2022.

Last year was the first time the series, which normally wraps up in August, was extended into September to mark Jackson-Triggs’ 30th anniversary.

This year’s series concludes on Sept. 14 with a performance by pop-rockers Dwayne Gretzky.

Other performers taking to the stage include Chantal Kreviazuk, The Sheepdogs, The Trews and Brett Kissel.

“This is another exciting summer that pairs award-winning Canadian wine with homegrown musicians, for an exceptional concert-going experience that you can’t find anywhere else,” said Craig Swanson, Jackson-Triggs Niagara Estate manager. 

Great Estates Niagara Wine Club members will have early access to purchase tickets, with the pre-sale beginning April 2, 2024.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on April 4 and will be sold through TIXR.com
