Big Wreck

Wed August 16, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


The 36th summer season of Peterborough Musicfest continues on Wednesday, August 16 at Del Crary Park with longtime widely acclaimed rock band Big Wreck headlining.

Originally formed in Boston in 1982, the band took the name Big Wreck in 1994, releasing its debut album In Loving Memory Of… three years later. Six albums have followed that initial recording, the latest being 7 released just this year. Four-time Juno Award-nominated (Rock Album of the Year for Albatross, Ghosts, Grace Street and …But For The Sun), Big Wreck enjoyed early success with the hit singles The Oaf (My Luck Is Wasted), That Song, Blown Wide Open and Lighthouse.

n 2011, Big Wreck scored big again with the charting singles Albatross, Wolves, A Million Days and Ghosts. Later hits One Good Piece Of Me and Middle of Nowhere kept Big Wreck fresh, and front and centre in the minds of longtime fans and new converts.

Original member Brian Doherty passed in 2019 but fellow band founder, singer and guitarist Ian Thornley, has made it his mission to keep Big Wreck very much relevant and on top of its game as a touring act – a goal that is being realized via a major 2023 tour of North America.
