On the evening of August 13, the networking continues when AgSmart hosts the Great Albertan BBQ, presented by ATB Financial. A celebration of Alberta’s agriculture industry, the BBQ will feature a 90-minute concert by acclaimed country singer Drew Gregory, presented by Cervus Equipment and will serve a field to fork menu showcasing locally sourced ingredients.
“It’s always a pleasure to be able to mix the music career with the farming career. I have enjoyed great success in music through continued education & adapting when necessary and farming is no different. Events such as Ag Smart are so important as a young farmer to stay ahead of the game in an increasingly technical profession. I look forward to being part of the event!”, says Drew Gregory.
Drew Gregory is not only an award-winning musician but is active on his family’s farm at Standard, Alberta. His songs are infused with a down home realism, a gritty honesty and vibrant sense of rootedness that comes from years spent working the land as a farmer – an aspect of his life that is deeply connected to his talent as a musician, singer and songwriter.
