From TV to the CNE

Thornhill Post - - Arts -

As far as ac­tors go, Toronto na­tive Kiefer Suther­land is as rec­og­niz­able as they come. He’s had a string of hit movies fol­lowed by a star­ring role on lon­grun­ning TV se­ries 24. And he’s been shoot­ing Des­ig­nated Sur­vivor here all year. But play­ing coun­try and west­ern mu­sic? Not so much. Truth be told, Suther­land was an ac­tual cow­boy. He com­peted on the rodeo cir­cuit and had a 500-strong herd of cat­tle. Those are bona fides right there. Last year, Suther­land re­leased his first al­bum Down In a Hole. “The irony is that I had no in­ten­tion of mak­ing an al­bum. I’m acutely aware of the stigma of an ac­tor do­ing mu­sic,” he said to Post City at the time. Suther­land brings his six-string and tales of love and loss to the CNE Band­shell on Aug. 20, www.theex.com.
