Calgary Stampede
Calgary, AB

Calgary Stampede

The details of this show are pretty sketchy at best. This could really be something associated with the annual rodeo event known as the Calgary Stampede which many country music stars appeared at.

However, it does appear that Calgary did have some sort of show. An article featuring the Stoltz Brothers mentions that they were on a show for 'several years' known as the "Calgary Western Jamboree". The show was able to attract some pretty big names from south of the border such as Hank Thompson, Eltorn Britt, Homer and Jethro and Sonny James.
