Live country music is returning to Oakville.

After more than a year of COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns, live music returns to the Moonshine Cafe in Oakville with Country Nights in the City on Wednesday, Sept. 22.

Presented and hosted by podcaster and blogger David Woods, the live country music show will feature six Canadian music acts.

The music show will open with London native Aaron Allen and wife Aimee.

A tattoo artist and rising country star, Allen was the winner of the Male Artist and Album of the Year awards at the recent Country Music Association of Ontario Awards.

Following Allen will be two sets from songwriters, including Dean James. The Ontario native blends new country with the classic country he was raised on.

Country singer/songwriter Courtney Bowles, whose different genres of music include popular and folk, will also perform. The southern-Ontario based performer has performed live at The Mady Centre for the Performing Arts in Barrie, the Geneva Event Centre in Orillia and Oshawa City Hall.

Mackenzie Leigh Meyer, a 2020 Boots & Hearts Emerging Artist finalist and know for her “vibrant stage presence and dynamic live show,” will also be performing.

The 26-year-old Hamilton native came onto the country music scene with her 2018 release debut EP Dive Bar Diva.

Also performing will be Barrie’s Rob Watts. Watts and his band have played the main stage at Boots and Hearts in 2018.

Local singer and songwriter Don Graham, along with guitarist John Dawson round out the list of performers at the Moonshine Cafe.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with performers set to play at 8 p.m. There is a $10 cover charge.

Seating is limited and attendance is by reservation only. Call 905-844-2655 to reserve a table.

Moonshine Cafe is located at 137 Kerr St.
