But at the invitation of Dynamic Earth, Eaglesmith is taking a break from his small town tour July 22 to become the headliner at the 50th anniversary party for the Big Nickel.

He's set to present an outdoor concert at the venue starting at 9 p.m. 


Other musical entertainment at Dynamic Earth July 22 includes the local acts Shriners Club Hillbilly Ramblers, Chicks with Picks, The Giselles and Larry Berrio. All of the concerts are free.

While Eaglesmith often plays with his band, known variously as the Flying Squirrels or The Flathead Noodlers, he's performing solo in Sudbury.

You can expect a few laughs, as Eaglesmith said he tries to counterbalance the typically serious nature of his songs by injecting humorous stories into his concerts.

While Eaglesmith is known for his songs about rural life, including tractors and farming, he said as he's gotten older, he's started writing about subjects that anyone can relate to.

“I try to write what in days gone by would be considered classics — songs that anybody can sing,” he said.

Fred Eaglesmith's fans are known as "Fredheads,” a nod to Deadheads, who followed The Grateful Dead.
