Friday August 17th

The Dead South

9:30 PM - The Dead South

The Dead South have been described as outlaws and modern hillbillies, but the best way to describe the Regina-based band is fearless. They’re a rare musical commodity – a band that’s equally compelling on record as they are on stage. While The Dead South’s signature blend of bluegrass and classic folk is familiar, it’s also […]

Elk Run + Riot

7:45 PM - Elk Run + Riot

Since forming in 2013, Elk Run & Riot have made it their priority to write songs that reflect who they are and where they live. For the alternative folk outfit, that environment is Alberta’s Bow Valley in the Rocky Mountains, whose natural wonders greatly inspired the group’s third full-length album, Animalia. On the eight new […]

Miesha and the Spanks

6:00 PM - Miesha and the Spanks

Calgary’s clamor rock couple Miesha and The Spanks are wild with a touchy underbelly. Steadfast. In any case, with a solid craving for something new for the street. What’s more, wherever they meander: uproarious, shake, and roll. Envision Karen O in Jack White’s place on right on time White Stripes. Then again, Joan Jett fronting […]

Saturday August 18th

Alex Cuba

9:30 PM - Alex Cuba

Alex Cuba is a Latin Grammy/Juno winner, singer-songwriter who is not tied to tradition; Alex has a vast musical vision. His sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks and powerful guitar riffs, relinquish a conventional stereotype that exemplifies much of the Latin music landscape. Born Alexis Puentes in Artemisa, Cuba, was immersed in music at a very young […]

Lion Bear Fox

7:45 PM - Lion Bear Fox

Vancouver’s Lion Bear Fox is three huge voices joined as one, telling the truth through compelling story, honest narrative and unbridled passion. Three men going to war onstage every night to share a message of hope, vulnerability and redemption. Lion Bear Fox is “a musical force of nature”, an “emotional awakening” that’s sure to “be […]


7:00 PM - WiL

William Mimnaugh (stage name WiL) is a contemporary roots artist who makes his home on Vancouver Island, Canada. Known for his firey live show, enigmatic stage presence and mad skill with an acoustic guitar, the 47 year old front man (he tours with a drummer and a keyboardist) is also known for penning ‘Roam’ flagship […]

Mariel Buckley

6:00 PM - Mariel Buckley

Few performers combine the lyrical heartfelt authenticity of classic country music with a steely eyed intensity that compels an audience’s attention like Calgary, Alberta’s Mariel Buckley. Amidst a sea of neon-Nashville superstars, Buckley offers a crunchy, roots alternative. Poignantly raw lyricism and thoughtfully arranged melodies are carried by her timeless vocal delivery – to create […]

Madeline Tasquin & Sarabande

5:30 PM - Madeline Tasquin & Sarabande

Instagram Facebook Hashtag #sarabandeband Imagine a freak teleportation accident in which the humour and harmony of The Boswell Sisters, the pop sensibilities of Dirty Projectors, and the folksy vocal blend of Red Molly are fused into a vocal trio combining all of that music-DNA. The result might sound something like Canadian songwriter Madeline Tasquin’s jazz-influenced […]
