Yet, country buffs have their festival in COUNTRY Montreal! Lasso Festival in Montreal Day
A new country is a genre that is all the excitement in the United States.
On our side of the border, membership is a slight timider, although we have felt a significant curiosity in this genre for seeral years.
Like the Festival d’été de Québec, which was a hit this year by inviting sensation Luke Combs, the city is following suit by giving its introductory country festival, Lasso.
The first day, when Mother Nature decided to collaborate, turned out to be particularly successful. We arrived in time to see the James Barker Band, which set the tone for a festive day.
Leader James Barker was in top form and seemed to be having a blast, despite the small crowd present during this segment.
The headliner of this first day, Dierks Bentley, even snuck up on stage to accompany the group.
The James Barker Band offered a cover of Rage Against the Machine, nothing less, between the “Chills”, “Want You in it”, “Keep It Simple” and more. A good moment!
Rising star Tenille Townes followed, with several of his hits including ‘Where You Are’ and ‘Girl Who Didn’t Care’.
In voice, the singer offered a great performance, accompanied by her guitar, without however arousing total enthusiasm.
Ashley McBryde impressed next with her vocal talents, taking on the thankless time slot where everyone was feeling peckish.
It was before seeing THE outstanding show of this first day, that of Old Dominion.
Relax and eat
They offers several places to relax, groceries for all tastes, merchandise for enthusiasts and, of course, a place of choice to enjoy good food. music in good company.
Parc Jean-Drapeau was full of spirit and enthusiasm
The spirit was festive this Friday at Parc Jean-Drapeau, as Montreal’s first country festival, the Lasso Festival, began there.
For the occasion, the festival-goers had put on their best looks in jeans, their hats and their cowboy boots, offering a unique and, to say the least, sexy look.
Nearly 35,000 people accepted Evenko’s invitation to this new festival, which brings together many Quebec, Canadian and American country stars.
The James Barker Band, Tenille Townes, Ashley McBryde and Dierks Bentley were notably on this introductory day.
The Old Dominion group
However, it is the group Old Dominion that is awarded the prize for this day 1.
The group, from Nashville, ignited the crowd by lining up successes, while demonstrating their happiness to be part of the event.
On the program, only hits, including “No Hard Feelings”, “Written in the Sand”, “Hotel Key”, “One Man Band” and several other songs that transformed the audience into a choir.
The singer, Matthew Ramsey, seemed thrilled with the enthusiasm of the crowd gazing at him, repeatedly mentioning how he had missed those gatherings during the pandemic.
His acolytes – Trevor Rosen, Whit Sellers, Geoff Sprung and Brad Tursi – offered the same energy, contagious as possible for the festival-goers.

Tribute to Taylor Hawkins
The members of the group were not afraid to come down from the stage to sing close to the fans on the floor, which of course had its effect. They also gave us the song “Learn to Fly” by the Foo Fighters, country style, in tribute to the late Taylor Hawkins.
