Ken Lavigne's Three Nights and a Tenor comes to the Battlefords

"What a gift to have such a beautiful and acoustically friendly room.” — Ken Lavigne on the Dekker Centre.

THE BATTLEFORDS — “What do people from the Battlefords call themselves?” Ken Lavigne asked at his Dekker Centre show, Three Knights and a Tenor, on Friday. Battlefordites, Battleforders and Battlefordians, were all suggested, but the word "lucky" seemed to be the winning term. 

Though being born in Victoria, B.C., Lavigne has deep roots in the Battlefords, with his father born in North Battleford. 

Lavigne started the next leg of his tour across Western Canada with his show at the Dekker Centre, singing classic songs such as Rocketman, Think of Me, Lady Madonna, Hallelujah and Candle in the Wind accompanied by live music courtesy of his band members.

“I enjoyed every minute of it. The night couldn't have gone any better. We couldn't have asked for a better night,” Lavigne said adding that the Battlefords was a wonderful place to start his western swing.

When asked what he thought of the Dekker Centre, Lavigne said, “This beautiful house you have here to perform in? I think it’s amazing. What a gift to have such a beautiful and acoustically friendly room.” 

 Lavigne's Three Knights and a Tenor has six upcoming shows across Alberta and Saskatchewan, with tickets available for purchase through Lavigne's website.
