FROM BOB EGAN – AN OPEN LETTER TO CANADA
Bob Egan here, writing an open letter to Canada on the cusp of my final show with Blue Rodeo.
These last 17 years have literally been a dream come true for me. From an awkward teen playing the Legion Halls of Central Illinois to a grown man playing on the stages of the world, this journey has exceeded my wildest dreams.
Seventeen years ago on my first day in Canada, as I walked down Queen Street in Toronto, I experienced a feeling I had never felt in my life. I felt like I belonged. I felt surrounded by people I could relate to. I felt at peace. And after 40 years of searching, I finally felt at home.

“Blue Rodeo’s show this Saturday, August 20 at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto will be our final show with our beloved pedal steel player Bob Egan, who is graduating from a highly successful career in music to a job in the public sector he feels is more suited to his new role as a 60 year old father of a 1 year old boy.
Bob has been with us for 17 wonderful years, a cherished band mate and friend, a big hearted man who gives tirelessly of himself, whether it’s through his charity work, his family, his work or his friendship. You always know you can count on Bob.
In over 20 years as a professional musician, Bob was a member of Freakwater,Wilco, and Blue Rodeo, released his own solo material and guested on countless recordings, including The Tragically Hip’s classic, Bobcaygeon. We will miss him terribly and wish him all the best in his new vocation. Love you, Bob.” ~ Glenn Milchem

Blue Rodeo Stand Together With Refugees
Blue Rodeo has partnered with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to record Stand Together with Refugees. In addition to a making a cash donation to support the Syrian refugee crisis late last year, Blue Rodeo continues to show its support for refugees worldwide through its partnership with UNHCR. The UN Refugee Agency is responsible for all refugees until they find a permanent place to call home – no matter where they are – and has recently launched the “Nobody Left Outside” campaign to raise funds to provide shelter solutions for 2 million refugees in the next three years and tackle the biggest global displacement crisis since the Second World War.
