Central Alberta country music star Gord Bamford leads a concert this weekend in support of a local community outreach project in Eckville.

Bamford, with special guest Duane Steele, play this Saturday, December 3 at Eckville Community Hall (5305 – 5315 52 Street, Eckville). Doors open at 6 and the show starts at 7.

The show is part of Bamford’s Kick COVID in the A** Tour and is aimed at all ages.

Proceeds will benefit the Eckville Recreation Board (ERB), which is looking to raise approximately $300,000 for a new outdoor recreation facility that will serve as a hockey/ice rink in the winter and a pickleball/basketball court in the warmer months.
