Calgary Folk Music Festival day three in review

“Follow the stars.” This isn’t spiritual advice given to me by one of the side-stage dancers, this is practical advice given to me by my friend Nick. In order to know which workshop to attend throughout the day Saturday, his approach was to check the festival schedule on his phone, and go to whichever stage had gotten the most stars. That worked out pretty well, as it led us to a jam session between David Bridie, The Lone Bellow and Typhoon, which turned out to be one of the best of the day. Typhoon is the type of band that should be in every workshop — big horn section, and absolutely no hesitation to jump into other people’s songs. It left us all talking about whether they’d ever record an album with The Lone Bellow.

The next few hours were … Read More

Calgary Folk Music Festival day two in review

Friday at Folk Fest seems to be when things start really kickin’. More of the jam zones start happening, and there seems to be a bit more variety. When I arrived, it was already fairly busy around the park. Luckily, I was in time to see Lee Fields and the Expressions. That show was wonderful. Lee Fields knows how to put on a show. The soul was resonating through the crowd (at least the people dancing on the sidelines, I don’t know about the people snoozing in the middle of the crowd, on their tarps). It was a ton of fun, and even the audience participation was pretty much mandatory in the dance zones. Fields may be one of the best performers of this weekend. He has been a soul performer for so many years, and it is definitely time that he gets … Read More

Calgary Folk Music Festival day one in review

Thursday was the first day of the Folk Fest, and I think it may just be the best way to start off the early weekend. I am assuming this is an early weekend, because the Folk Fest is like a mini vacation. People seem to pack a lot when venturing out onto Prince’s Island Park for four days of music, food, comedy, and a bunch of people hula hooping. The tarps come out, as well as the lawn chairs, and home-made coffee and sangria. I usually bring a tote-bag with an umbrella and sunscreen. That’s pretty much all you need.

Anyway, the festival started off right. I arrived at 6 p.m., just as Doug Paisley started to play. His songs have more of a minimal country/folk feel, and remind me of old Gram Parsons records at points. His songs sounded very melancholy, and … Read More

Calgary Public Library recognized as an innovator

Post Hero Image

The Calgary Public Library (CPL) was recently recognized by the Urban Libraries Council as one of its 2014 Top Innovators for Serving Communities in Crisis for its leadership in responding to the 2013 flood. The library worked with the Calgary Emergency Management Agency to open libraries in evacuation centers, and offered computer access to displaced community members to enable them to connect.

Following the flood, the library foundation’s city-wide book drive, 20,000 Books under the Bow, resulted in a world record of over 270,000 books, DVDs and CDs donated on a single day.

If that’s not enough to impress you, the CPL is also innovative in the services it provides to Calgarians — it is now offering free downloadable music … Read More

Stampede Hangover Picnic

Lemon Bucket Orchestra


Trumpeter Michael Louis Johnson

If you're not excited by the mere mention of a klezmer-gypsy-punk street dance party parade, then maybe it's hopeless for you. 

On July 15, the first annual Stampede Hangover Picnic will wind its way through Calgary streets, with the Lemon Bucket Orkestra from Toronto. The band will play an acoustic set in Olympic Plaza starting at 6:15 p.m. and then trumpeter Michael Louis Johnson will lead a bike/board/blade parade which ends at the ContainR site in Sunnyside, where there will be more music from LBO and Calgary's Delirium until 9 p.m.

The event is open to all ages and is pay-what-you-can. You're encouraged to bring food and drink to share, so don't be a … Read More
