July 10, 2024

For the second year in a row, thousands of people filled Victoria Park, Kincardine, to rock with ABBAMANIA at the Kincardine Scottish Festival, Saturday night.

The entire evening line-up was a hit, starting with the Glengarry Bhoys, featuring the incredible D’Arcy Furniss on fiddle, and Graham Wright on vocals.

ABBAMANIA then took the stage, singing and dancing to the popular music of ABBA. This band was, once again, a definite hit with the crowd!

The Trans-Canada Highwaymen, created from members of four Canadian rock bands, were stellar, performing hits from 40 years ago. It was like listening to a 1980s mix tape!

Formed in 2016, the band features Stephen Page of Barenaked Ladies, Chris Murphy of Sloan, Craig Northey of Odds and Moe Berg of The Pursuit of Happiness.
