The votes are in and a lyric has been chosen for a commemorative stone at Springer Market Square to mark The Tragically Hip’s August 20 concert in Kingston.
“Everybody was in it from miles around” was the overwhelming choice of online voters.
The line is from the song “Blow at High Dough.”
“August 20, The Tragically Hip Day in Kingston, is a night Kingstonians and Canadians will always remember,” said Mayor Bryan Paterson. “Thank you to all those who voted on the lyric to be displayed on the commemorative stone, a physical showcase of our pride and love for our iconic hometown boys.”
More than 11,000 votes were cast.
Of those, almost 8,000 were in favour of the chosen lyric.
The stone, when complete, will read: “Everybody was in it from miles around, The Tragically Hip, A National Celebration, August 20, 2016.”
