Edmonton Folk Music Festival Preview

This year's lineup for the Edmonton Folk Music Festival has just been announced!

This Saturday May 29 on the show, join Katherine and festival Artistic Director Terry Wickham for a conversation about what's new for this year. Plus, hear about the great Alberta artists who'll performing. It's a stellar list that includes The McDades, Ian Tyson, and 5 young up-and-comers on the very popular U22 Stage!


Colleen Brown is on a Roll!

Edmonton's Colleen Brown has come a long way since CBC first recorded her a few years ago. Recently signed to Dead Daisy Records, she's currently touring with Hannah Georgas, and just found out she'll be sharing the stage with Hawskley Workman and Blue Rodeo's Jim Cuddy next month at NXNE in Toronto.

This week on Key of A, we'll catch up with all Colleen's news by phone (I spoke with her the morning after her show at Canmore's Communitea) and we'll hear the great live set she played in Calgary at Bands at the Grand!

Plus, new music from Ron Burke and A Little Voodoo!


Calgary Folk Festival Preview

The Calgary Folk Music Festival has been called "One of the 7 Musical Wonders of the World" (that was Robert Everett-Green writing in the Globe and Mail a couple of years ago.)
The 2010 lineup is being announced this week, and Artistic Director Kerry Clarke will drop by the studio with festival news, and play some of the great Alberta music she's invited to perform at Prince's Island Park in July --  Ghostkeeper, Jordan Klassen, Chris Gheran, Asani, Axis of Conversation, JR Shore and more!
