Each musician performed some of their own songs as well as classics such as the Tennessee Waltz and Hallelujah. The crowd enjoyed their friendly banter and stories from their tour that has been happening across Saskatchewan.

Straker showcased his wonderful voice and piano talents along with Semple on the guitar and Canadian singer-songwriter Campagne. Together they blended their musical talents, entertaining the audience to a wonderful, soulful performance backed by stellar musicians.

Jeffery Straker and Friends are currently on an Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Council 50th anniversary tour across Saskatchewan, making 18 stops in different towns and cities. Estevan was the seventh stop on the tour.
