The endowed position, named after the former head of the music division at Library Archives Canada, will also be supported by the Koerner Foundation – Peter Hum, Ottawa Citizen

Owen Riegling Is Going on a Tour of Small Towns in Canada

The emerging Mildmay, Ontario country singer is forgoing big city venues to perform for free in twelve small-town bars around the country. As for bigger Canadian markets, Billy Idol, Deep Purple, Sean Paul and more have also announced new Canadian dates.

Canadian country singer Owen Riegling is buckling up for a unique summer tour. The emerging artist is honouring his small town roots — Riegling hails from Mildmay, Ontario — with free performances in 12 small-town bars across four provinces.
