Clayton Bellamy playing the Mary Webb Centre
Multiple-award winning Clayton Bellamy brings his “rock n’ country” music on Friday 22nd June at 8.00pm to the Mary Webb Centre at 87 Main Street West, Highgate.
A 15-year veteran in the country music industry, Bellamy boasts a career filled with accolades and achievements including a Juno for Best Country Recording, a four time Canadian Country Music Award winner and SOCAN Songwriter of the Year.
Bellamy has dominated Nashville’s Grand Old Opry stage as both a solo artist and as a member of the award-winning band The Road Hammers. His self-styled “bombastic fun” music is high energy and crowd interactive – “real music for real people” influenced by such stars as Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty.
People Magazine and the NY Times have featured his musical talents, highlighting his passion for composing music, writing lyrics and playing guitar, harmonica and piano.
Currently based in Nashville, this Renaissance Man is married with two sons and enjoying hobbies such as snowboarding, motorcycle touring, hunting, fishing, and wake boarding – and he was once ranked 4th in Canada in Motorcross racing.
Bellamy composes his songs based upon personal experiences and everyday encounters wherever he can find a quiet moment – songs that inspire others and uplift audiences. The title track of his sixth album, “Everyone’s a Dreamer” rose to the number one downloaded single on iTunes in January this year. The dream concept is also the basis for a recent Northern Alberta tour during which he spoke to 4,000 youngsters about following their dreams. He asserts, “Everyone can be a dreamer”.
The Mary Webb Centre is grateful that the support of sponsors Kearney Planters of Turin and Investors Group of Dutton has allowed this great performer to come to Highgate.
