Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Canada's Great Big Sea Announce Bend Date at the Tower Theatre

Great Big Sea brings their energetic Newfoundland-based folk-rock and sea shanties to the Tower Theatre in Bend, Oregon.

Posted By on Tue, Jan 4, 2011 at 9:03 PM

Newfoundland, Canada-based folk-rockers Great Big Sea sail into the Tower Theatre on Sunday, March 13. The band, who has been together for more than 17 years, plays rock interpretations of traditional Newfoundland folk songs, which often includes sea shanties and songs that draw from their Irish and English heritage. In addition to Celtic-inspired pub songs, Great Big Sea also plays original material. The band couldn't come at a more perfect time, promising an energetic pre-St. Patty's Day show to get you in the holiday spirit.

Now, it may be a little big early on this one, but we just wanted to give you plenty of time to plan ahead for this recently announced show. Get your tickets in advance, and in anticipation of the rollicking good time, check out this live video of Great Big Sea performing "The Old Black Rum" below.
