The Corazones are a versatile roots-rock band based in Calgary Alberta who pour their heart into every performance. They write songs about small towns, love, loneliness, and coffee and showcase their love for 60's funk, 70's folk, Canadiana and all the noise in between. While their shows are powerfully fun and light-hearted, their lyrics poetically examine the beautiful intricacies of life, love, and family.

Natalie Inga is a deep soul always searching for light in the dark places. You can hear this in her rich guitar parts and the sweet vulnerability and power of her voice. Pensive and playful, folky and fierce, this songbird takes audiences for a ride in her live performance. Listeners often pick out the Joni Mitchell influence.

I Am the Mountain
I Am The Mountain is everywhere, from bars and cafes, to caught-in-your-brain as you try and fall asleep. Beginning as a folk project of singer-songwriter Colton O’Reilly, the late-night campfire soul songs that once whispered between the pines in Kananaskis have echoed through almost every music-friendly space in Calgary. The horn-accented songs of I Am The Mountain are the most pleasant and reliable in a city with a maelstrom of eclectic indie. As the band grew into a full ensemble, the heart-on-sleeve earnestness of their early folk songs have morphed into luxurious still-life songs that bring bodies together with smart drumming and scintillating sparkly guitar work. The floating bass and fluttering horns circle around each other, sinking back like a warm hug from an old friend.

Angela Wrigley Trio
In 2017, Angela Wrigley, Dave Lake and Derek Stoll began playing all over the Calgary jazz scene. Dave and Derek both lent their own creative influences, revelling in their differences and finding shared interests, to Angela’s compositions and arrangements. Drawing from jazz standards, rock hits and pop classics, they have created a body of work that intricately describes the story of love and loss, hope and longing, and what it means to deeply and truly be “in love”.

Cabot's Crossing has a repertoire firmly embedded in East Coast / Maritime / Newfoundland / traditional Irish music, from the Rankins and Great Big Sea to Ryan's Fancy and Stan Rogers, Christy Moore and the Pogues, John Allan Cameron and Ron Hynes.
The boys bring an authentic Celtic performance to the stage: the raw excitement of an impromptu kitchen party fused with the refined, polished sound of musicians demonstrating decades of combined experience. Their high-energy and hard-driving rhythm will leave audiences clapping, stomping, singing and drinking along ... usually all of the above.

If you’re looking for the place where your soul can be wild and your heavy-heart assuaged, follow the sound of Tennyson’s crisp, round voice, as he plucks an electric chord and hammers out a beat on the kick-drum.
