Mudmen play Village Green Sunday
Organizers of the Sunday in the Park series at Creemore Village Green are expecting a big crowd for the July 30 performance by Canadian Celtic rock band the Mudmen.
Park manager Jeremy Mantesso said he has been fielding inquiries from people wondering where they can buy tickets. But Sunday’s show is part of the free concert series happening every Sunday afternoon. Mantesso said the idea was to have a different genre of music on the Village Green stage each week and the Mudmen are made of proud Canadian boys who offer a high energy Celtic Rock show.
The band, founded by bagpipe- playing brothers Robby and Sandy Campbell, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Described as Canada’s Celtic Rock Warriors The Mudmen toured Canada 40 times, have toured with Johnny Reid, opened for ZZ Top and The Guess Who, and shared the bill at various events with many of Canada’s top performers. They have played for Queen Elizabeth at a Canada Day celebration on Parliament Hill and have been featured on The Black Donnelly’s, WWE Wrestling, Hockey Night in Canada, Don Cherry’s Rock’ em Sock’ em hockey videos, The Mackenzie Brothers two-four anniversary special among other television shows. They had six music videos on Much Music and MTV, and reached the top 20 countdown on 102.1 The Edge radio.
That same afternoon Imaginarium Adventures in Art will be facilitating activities in the park including facepainting and picket painting from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.. The pickets are being installed at the community garden at Clearview EcoPark and Stayner.
This Sunday morning, the weekly fitness activity is creative dance with Rachel Stephenson, beginning at 10 a.m.
