Past song of the week / June 2015

Don Amero
"Won't Give Up"

From the album Refined

Featured track, available from June 18 to June 26

APTN's Aboriginal Day Live celebration returns to The Forks this weekend for a day of music, culture, storytelling, art, food, traditional demonstrations, Pow wow, and more. The always-popular concert takes over Festival Stage with a diverse lineup including fiddler Patti Kusturok, Franco-pop artist marijosée, rock outfit Federal Lights, and award-winning country pop singer/songwriter Don Amero. Amero is fresh from last weekend's release of his brand new album, the Murray Pulver produced Refined, and gearing up for an album release tour in the last week of June with Whitehorse, Prince George, and Canada Day in Vancouver. In addition to sharing new and favourite tunes at Aboriginal Day Live, he'll also share the stage with country star Brett Kissel to perform their co-write, "Rebuild This Town". Meanwhile, we've got Amero's new tune "Won't Give Up" as this week's featured download. Grab it, check out the whole album, and get out to The Forks on June 20 for great local music at Aboriginal Day Live!
