Annual Fox Mountain Country Music Festival

Fox Mountain Camping Park welcomes our new organizer for the Country Music Festival:


Matt Balsor, country music recording artist and Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame inductee , is the new host and organizer of the Fox Mountain Country Music Festival. Matt’s music career spans 20 years. With 13 albums, international recognition, and over 700 stage appearances, Matt and his Hilltop Show Band will be headlining the festival as it enters its 16th year.

What to expect? Matt plans to feature top-notch talent from here in Nova Scotia and beyond. “There will be something for everyone”, he says. Thursday evening will still provide an opportunity for folks to perform during the Open Mic, the dance area will be open for those who enjoying kicking up their heels, and there may even be a few surprises along the way.

Matt has been a wonderful promoter and supporter of country music artists whether it’s featuring them on his sold-out shows or on his recordings. In 2012, Matt recorded an album entitled, “Matt Balsor & Friends – Duets” (the largest musical recording done in Canada to date). This album featured Matt singing duets with 25 different singers from across Nova Scotia. The recording made its way to Germany and caught the attention of a country music publicist who is responsible for writing international country music encyclopedias. Matt was selected as one of the few singers, along with Wilf Carter, Hank Snow, Anne Murray, Rita McNeil, Carroll Baker, and George Canyon, from Nova Scotia to be featured in a Canadian edition released in 2014.
