People may not be able to gather together this Canada Day, but the Winnipeg Blue Bombers want to make sure their fans still have have something to do in celebration.

The team, in conjunction with Valour FC of the Canadian Premier League, will host a virtual Canada Day concert live for IG Field at 6 p.m. central time on July 1 on Facebook.

The concert is headlined by local artists, including two time Grammy nominee Fresh IE, but one name stands apart from the rest: Drew Wolitarsky.

The productive Canadian receiver recently released an original song on YouTube and will take to the stage to show off his musical styling for football fans.

If Wolitarsky is as good on the guitar as he was catching Chris Streveler touchdown passes, concert attendees should be in for a treat.
