Hope is going country

Aaron Halliday set to perform Alan Jackson tribute concert on Oct. 27

Aaron Halliday is bringing his Almost Alan tribute show to Hope on Oct. 27 at the Eagles hall. Tickets are $10.

It’s time to dust off your cowboy boots and get ready to two-step.

Aaron Halliday is bringing the music of country legend Alan Jackson to the Eagles hall this Saturday for a special tribute concert.

“The show is very much like an Alan Jackson concert, but with a very personal and interactive side,” said Halliday.

“I want the audience to feel like they are a part of the show, not just attendees. There will be songs that make you ‘Remember When’ life was simple as well as the ‘Good Times’ and everything in between.”

Born and raised in Nova Scotia before moving to B.C., Halliday grew up surrounded with old country values and a love for music.

In his early career, he performed in the band Two Much Trouble with Dave Leake and shared the stage with artists such as Jason McCoy, Beverly Mahood and Chris Cummings.

After the duo parted ways 10 years ago, a number of friends and fans commented on Halliday’s similarity to Alan Jackson, inspiring him to start working on his tribute show Almost Alan.

“Outside of the appearance and sound, I like the down home, real life values that surround Alan and that is who I truly am which makes it even easier to be myself while paying tribute to him,” he said.

“This will not be a flashy show but it is the type of show that will leave you wanting to know more about Alan Jackson and have a greater appreciation of his song writing.”

In addition to showcasing Jackson’s music, Halliday will perform hits from other artists like Dwight Yoakum, Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard.

The concert starts at 8 p.m. on Oct. 27 at the Eagles hall, which is located at 386 Fort St. Tickets are $10 per person.
