Cross Canadian Ragweed coming to Dawson County Fair
Tickets go on sale Tuesday, June 1, for Cross Canadian Ragweed.
Known for playing a music genre named red dirt, southern, and country rock and alternative country, the quartet will perform in front of the grandstand on Friday, July 16, at 6 p.m. as part of the Dawson County Fair.
The fair is July 9-18 in Lexington.
Red dirt music gets its name from the color of the soil found in Oklahoma and originates from folk, country, western swing, country rock and blues.
In an interview with lead guitarist Cody Canada in CMT magazine, he describes the group as a little more rock ‘n’ roll than other people playing red dirt music.
According to Cross Canadian Ragweed’s website, at www. crosscanadianragweed.com, the band has sold more than a million albums, signed a major label deal and sold out venues from New York to California.
Appearing with Cross Canadian Ragweed will be country-music band Jonathan Singleton and The Grove.
