Selkirk Range will be performing a CD release show in Edmonton at Cafe Blackbird on April 6.
Yes, I know, it’s been a few months since we released the album but we decided to wait until Spring to celebrate it.
Join us for family-friendly show at a wonderful venue that supports local music in Edmonton.
This is a highlight reel from a short set I did at the Uptown Folk Club in Edmonton last week. The Club plays a valuable role supporting live music and songwriters in the city and they have an open mic one Friday each month, which is a great opportunity to try out new material in front of a friendly audience.
Okotoks is a pretty little town just south of Calgary with a lovely main street and Art Gallery located in the old railway station where they are hosting a weekly Art on the Lawn event each Thursday.
Last week I had the pleasure of performing at the event where I met Allan Boss is with Culture & Historical Services for Okotoks and his team Andrea and Nicola. Allan and his team do a wonderful job putting on this event and creating an opportunity for local artisans and musicians to be seen and heard.
I had the pleasure of meeting Allan last year at the Summer Saturdays event in Okotoks when I performed a few songs on stage during a beautiful morning at the market. Allan is a great supporter of local artists and I am grateful for his energy and enthusiasm for events like these. And he’s written some cool kids songs too!
My friend Tom Barker was at the side of the stage during my set at HOTC 2015 and took this video of me opening with “Never Coming Back (Opportunity Knocks)”. I haven’t yet demoed this song but it sure was fun to do live.
What a beautiful day for Edmonton’s Heart of the City Festival yesterday. And dBoy joined me on stage to play cajon on ‘Doin’ by Me‘.
