Souris is holding two concerts in May and June as part of a plan to revive the southwestern Manitoba town’s economy after the extensive damage it suffered in the 2011 flood.
Juno winners Doc Walker will perform at the Souris and Glenwood Memorial Complex on May 9 and Aaron Pritchett will be the musical act on June 27 for what’s been dubbed Swinging Bridge Weekend in Souris.
Souris was known for its 180-metre suspension pedestrian bridge, a town symbol for more than a century, which was washed away when the Souris River flooded three years ago. It was rebuilt in 2013.
Tickets for the shows — Doc Walker sells for $35, Pritchett for $25 — go on sale on Tuesday at 9 a.m. on Ticketweb.com.
