Game On!  James Barker Band at the 2017 Markham Fair!

Game On!!!  Markham Fair is proud to present James Barker Band on Saturday, September 30th in the Crow’s Corral!  “Just sayin’” we are excited to have them come out as they continue to break records, and make waves in The Canadian Country Music Scene with their 5 CCMA nominations, including the Rising Star, Group or Duo of the year, Album of the year, single of the year, and Video of the year.

The guys have had a busy year, with no signs of slowing down. Their first single,?“Lawn Chair Lazy,” which was written by band frontman, James Barker, along with fellow Canadians Gavin Slate and Travis Wood, became the highest charting debut single ever from a Canadian artist at Country Radio. Their video for the song also spent two weeks at #1 on the CMT Canada’s Chevy Top 20 Countdown. The band’s follow-up single,?“Just Sayin’,” received?mass praise from the industry and fans and just like the first, went Top 10 at country radio. The third, single “Chills” released on March 3 also received a number one from CMT Chevy Top 20 Countdown, but also a number one at Canadian country radio, making them the first band to have a number one at radio off a debut album.

Come get “Chills” at the 173rd Markham Fair, and be a part of James Barker Band’s musical journey!
