Sheepdogs win big at Canadian Indie Awards

Saskatoon’s retro-rockers The Sheepdogs not only picked a leading four Independent Music Awards Saturday night in Toronto, but they got a special surprise guest in the form of British classic rock vocalist Paul Rodgers (Free, Bad Company and The Firm) who joined them on stage half-way through their set at the ceremony.

Free was apparently a big influence on the ‘70s-and-blues-inspired Sheepdogs, who also landed on the cover of Rolling Stone last year, becoming the first unsigned act to do so, and Rodgers happened to be in town to give a public chat at Canadian Music Week earlier in the day.
