The Wilkinsons, a Grammy-nominated trio, are back out on the road after a six-year hiatus for an unforgettable intimate 'Evening With The Wilkinsons.' Hear the greatest hits from the family group, as well as Amanda's solo career and the Small Town Pistols, like '26 Cents,' 'No More Me & You,' and 'Colour Blind' when the Canadian band hits the Opera House stage June 30.

The Wilkinsons are a Canadian Country music trio from Trenton, Ontario. Founded in 1997, the group consists of lead singer Amanda Wilkinson, her brother Tyler Wilkinson, and their father, Steven Wilkinson. The Wilkinsons achieved success late in 1998 with the hit single '26 Cents,' a No. 1 hit on the Canadian Country music charts and Top 5 hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts.

It was followed by 'Fly (The Angel Song)', also a No. 1 in Canada. A second album, Here and Now, produced the group's last American top 40 hit in 'Jimmy's Got a Girlfriend.'  Afterward, the trio recorded three more albums, one of which was not released, and a Greatest Hits package.
