UPCOMING SHOWS

BRADEN GATES
Saturday December 16 at 7 pm
Sunday December 17 at 3 pm: Dinner & a Set

Two opportunities to absorb Braden 1) a regular Saturday night concert, or 2) sit down for Sunday dinner with Braden.

"Gates'...slightly gravelly voice relays stories that are funny and heartbreaking—usually over the course of the same tune. Full of folksy charm and sharp observations...compositions are relevant and, strangely, very rooted in the present—even if he plays that fiddle and picks that guitar like an artist three times his age." — Calgary Folk Music Festival

Braden Gates used to fall asleep to his father's fiddle: St Annes Reel, The Tennessee Waltz, Black Velvet. He became obsessed with playing the fiddle listening to hours of Canadian fiddlers, like Calvin Vollrath from St Paul, AB and Mark Sullivan from Bowmanville, ON, and Don Messer.

"When i get into something i love, or something that makes me feel good, i can't stop—that goes for good things and bad things."

Braden's latest album, Much Rather Be Sleeping has been nominated for 2017 Canadian Folk Music Awards:
New/Emerging Artist of the Year
Contemporary Album of the Year
