UPCOMING SHOWS

DAVE MCCANN
Saturday January 21 at 7 pm
at The Gallery

Dave McCann embraces the rocky edge of folk. During this rare solo performance, his beat and his voice will have you head-bobbing like a rock concert but the musicianship and dynamic lyrical force will assure you that you've come to the right place.

Ontario-born, Lethbridge settler, McCann received critical acclaim when he and the Ten Toed Frogs released three albums Woodland Tea, Country Medicine and Shoot The Horse (captured live at the historic and long-gone Sidetrack Cafe).

The band name was changed to 'Dave McCann and the Firehearts' in 2006 to reflect the spirit that enfolds the beautiful, sweeping, haunted, wind-torn hills of Blackfoot Country where McCann records. They took that spirit to Nashville and recorded "Dixiebluebird" with Americana guitar icon and producer Will Kimbrough (Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Mavis Staples, Todd Snider). McCann's fifth, and most current full-length release "Circle of Light", kicks off with the unshakable jolt of "Wooden Wings" and winds its way through new musical terrain with Leeroy Stagger at the console at The Rebeltone Ranch.

SARAH JANE SCOUTEN
Thursday February 9 at 7 pm

Inspired by Hank Williams and Stan Rogers (staples at Sunday morning pancake breakfast), a 5-year old Sarah Jane Scouten sang 'Lace and Pretty Flowers' by Canadian country-folk musician, Willie P. Bennett at the dining room table. Her talent for performing comes naturally from singing bluegrass and gospel music with her father and sister.

Although this all-growed-up two-time Canadian Folk Music Award nominee with flavours of Lucinda Williams, Nanci Griffiths, and Old Crow Medicine Show is faithful to a long-standing folk music tradition, she often spills over into modern themes that are outspoken and edgy: homelessness, midwifery, and tongue-in-cheek heartache. It’s unabashed Canadiana.

Discovered by Vancouver 'Light Organ Records' producer Andy Bishop, Scouten’s EP became volume one of his project 'The Railtown Sessions'.

Sarah Jane will soon release a full-length album recorded in Toronto at Revolution Recording with veteran Canadian producer Andre Wahl (Hawksley Workman, Jill Barber). The ten original songs range from classic honky tonk to Western-swing to indie-folk rock, with two traditional Western Canadian crackly recordings discovered in a university archive and given new life through Scouten's haunting arrangements.
