Young, Female, and Folky

This week on the Key of A, we're at the Calgary Folk Music Festival, for performances by two up-and-coming young female folksters from Alberta.

We'll hear Emily Jill West sing her soulful, poignant songs about home, love, lust -- and the wide-open Alberta skies she grew up with.

Then we'll pick up the pace with the upbeat -- and sometimes even offbeat -- sound of busy touring band Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk.

Plus -- a preview of one of the shows CBC microphones picked up at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival: The McDades, who you'll be hearing from on the Key of A later this fall!

Tune in for original music by Alberta artists, this Saturday -- and every Saturday -- from 5-6pm across the province, on CBC Radio 1's Key of A.
