Newfoundland’s Rum Ragged wrap up North American tour with a show at the New Brunswick Highland Games Festival on July 29.

Rum Ragged won the hearts of Frederictonians last year when they kicked off the 2022 Living Roots Music Festival (happening this week) with a blazing set at Grimross Brewing Co. The band will be back in Fredericton later this summer for a show at the New Brunswick Highland Games Festival on July 29. 

This summer is shaping up to be a busy one for this Newfoundland quartet. With a new single now out on all streaming platforms (and the live video above) and their Hook, Line & Sinker Tour beginning next week at The Opera House in Boothbay Harbour, Maine, Rum Ragged will have played eight folk festivals on stages across Canada and the United States by the time they arrive in Fredericton for a performance that will cap off what is shaping up to be the band’s busiest summer schedule to date.
