If business partners at the Bull & Barrel Urban Saloon have their way, Windsor will soon become a real country music town.
Business partners Christian Komsa, Matt Komsa and Andrew Corbett of the Bull & Barrel Urban Saloon are looking to turn Windsor into ‘Nashville North’
The trio recently returned from their second trip to Nashville Tennessee, in search of the best country music artists to bring back with them. Today they are proud to announce their second official date for their Winter Concert Series, Christian country group, Eden’s Edge!
Eden’s Edge will be at The Bull n’ Barrel on Sunday February 17th, which will be the second date of the concert series which is being kicked off by Craig Campbell on Thursday January 31st
“We have hand picked our first two acts, and our third and forth acts will be announced in the coming month… and those will be the biggest yet. Eden’s Edge and Craig Campbell will bring two completely different styles to The Bull n’ Barrel, and we are excited to be able to offer this to our fans, and country music lovers throughout Windsor and Essex County” claims Corbett.
Success of recent live performances at the downtown Windsor 500 person venue on Ouellette Avenue has demonstrated a huge demand for bigger entertainment in the up-close-and-personal experience that the Bull & Barrel offers.
The four country concerts that The Bull n’ Barrel has held in the past year, have focused mainly on Canadian country artists, with the success of those acts, ownership is looking to raise the bar with the addition of some internationally recognized artists.
”We fully support Canadian talent and will continue booking Canadian artists at The Bull, but the explosive growth of the country/rock genre means we have a chance to show-case internationally recognizable talent for our customers” said Andrew Corbett, ”Building a relationship with the agents is a key part of getting the best acts possible” states Corbett.
