After selling out the Marigold in June 2008, THE ORIGINAL STAMPEDERS, KIM BERLY, RICH DODSON AND RONNIE KING, one of Canada's top rock groups in the 70's, return to play for their enthusiastic fans in Truro.
They have won Juno Awards for 'Best Group,' 'Best Single,' 'Best Producer' and 'Best Composer' for their platinum single, SWEET CITY WOMAN. Their other hits include CARRY ME, DEVIL YOU, WILD EYES, OH MY LADY, THEN CAME THE WHITE MAN, MINSTREL GYPSY, HIT THE ROAD JACK, NEW ORLEANS and MONDAY MORNING CHOO CHOO to name just a few.
They went on to become a household name, with four songs reaching Top-30 in the U.S and twelve Top-10 singles in Canada. They recorded nine albums, many achieving gold and platinum status. SWEET CITY WOMAN has since become a classic and a standard in the world of pop music.
According to promoter DONALD K. DONALD, they were the top Canadian concert draw from 1971 to '74, and were the first Canadian band to tour from one end of the country to the other.
In 1994, RICH DODSON was inducted into the SOCAN Hall of Fame for his compositions, SWEET CITY WOMAN and CARRY ME along with KIM BERLY for his composition OH MY LADY.
