  • Live

Dan Simpson is Island Radio’s newest morning host with a Thursday program called THE ISLAND SUNRISE SHOW. From 7 to 9am, the beef-farming-country-singer, will entertain listeners with good old country, bluegrass and a bit of rock n’ roll.

Dan began appreciating country music as a teenager growing up along the shores of St. John River in Oak Point, New Brunswick. Two of Dan’s favourite artists are Emmy Lou Harris and Hank Williams Jr. Dan not only sings and writes music, but plays stand up bass and acoustic guitar. He performs with the band Sheila Bedard & Country Rythm.

Dan and his wife Joan created the EMERALD MUSIC FESTIVAL on Amherst Island in 2011. For all details about the festival located on Amherst Island, please visit the website:
