A new made-for-TV documentary is highlighting Dauphin’s Countryfest as it prepares to mark its 25th year in June.
“Countryfest: The Story of Canada’s Longest Running Country Music Festival” is airing on MTS TV to reveal the excitement and tradition behind the music and mayhem.
“We wanted to show people who have never been to Dauphin’s Countryfest what it’s all about,” said director Steve Langston of Dirty T-Shirt Productions. “We also wanted to connect with fans of Countryfest to find out why they keep coming back year after year, and what the festival means to them today. For those reasons, we made this documentary.”
The 44-minute doc is currently running on MTS Stories from Home.
This year’s festival is June 26-29, featuring headliner Blake Shelton, with Rascal Flatts, The Band Perry, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Tim Hicks and others.
