The Strumbellas

THE STRUMBELLAS HEADLINE A FREE CONCERT JUNE 24 AT THE TIM HORTONS OTTAWA DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL

Organizers of the Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival are happy to announce headliner The Strumbellas, supported by special guests Frown Line and Stoby, will be lighting up the stage on Friday June 24th at Mooneys Bay Park.

"We are so excited to have The Strumbellas headlinging our return to in-person festivities. It's going to be a fantastic night at the festival and a perfect way to kick off the summer.” says Antony Cooper, the festival's artistic director.

Formed in 2008, multi-award winning internationally renowned alternative rock band The Strumbellas have built their career on crafting exceptional songs, easily connecting with fans through their honest and relatable lyricism and versatile sound. The two-time JUNO Award winners have spent much of their time on the road, delivering standout performances at such notable festivals as Bonnaroo, Governor’s Ball, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and more.

Their 2016 studio album Hope gained international attention with single ‘Spirits’ topping the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, earning them the JUNO Award for  ‘Single of the Year’ and a coveted performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. ‘Spirits’ has since been certified 3x Platinum in Canada and Italy, Platinum in Germany, and Gold in Belgium, France and the United States. Their 2019 release Rattlesnake and lead single ‘Salvation’ garnered another TV performance opportunity, this time on Late Night with Seth Meyers, and the track went on to win the band a 2020 SOCAN ‘Rock Music’ Award.

Now, with four full length albums under their belt, an iHeartRadio Music Award, three Canadian Radio Music Awards and two Canadian Independent Music Awards, The Strumbellas recently reconfigured from six to seven members, adding frontman Jimmy Chauveau to the mix after original lead Simon Ward opted to pull back from the rigorous touring schedule that’s become routine for the group. The latest iteration of The Strumbellas look to the future of the band, working towards the next chapter of their career; ever evolving, adapting and growing. The Strumbellas are Jimmy Chauveau (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Jeremy Drury (percussion), Jon Hembrey (guitar), Darryl James (bass), Isabel Ritchie (strings), David Ritter (keys), and Simon Ward (songwriter).
