Danny Vacon of The Dudes and Dojo Workhorse

This week on the Key of A, Danny Vacon drops by for a chat. He's the lead singer of both The Dudes and Dojo Workhorse, and he'll bring along the new Dojo Workhorse release, Civil Shepherds.

Plus,  new music by Carrie Day. She's launching her new album Life is Like This Sunday evening (Dec 2) at the Yardbird Suite in Edmonton. Tune in to hear three of her songs about friendship, relationships, and not letting life pass you by.
And, you'll get a preview of what you can expect if you head out to hear Tres Hombres -- three Alberta songwriters touring to Medicine Hat, Black Diamond, Lethbridge, Edmonton and Calgary next week. The three 'hombres' are Bill Bourne, Scott Cook and Indio Saravanja and you'll hear a song from each of them.


Reuben and the Dark, Live at the Lantern

This week, we bring you an exclusive live Key of A recording. You'll hear Reuben and the Dark, closing out a great night of music at the Lantern in Calgary. 
Congratulations to 18 year-old Cochrane musician Lucas Chaisson, who won his 2nd Young Artist of the Year title last weekend at the Canadian Folk Music Awards in St John, New Brunswick. His first CFMA nod came in 2010, for his album No Loitering. His current win recognizes his newest release, Growing Pains, and we'll feature several tracks from that award-winning album.
High River's Karla Adolphe has shows coming up this week in both Edmonton (The ARTery, Monday Nov 26) and Calgary (The Ironwood, Fri Nov 30) so we'll sample her sorrowful, soulful yet somehow uplifting sound on her album, Honeycomb Tombs. If you can't get to either of those shows, you might want to take advantage of the free download Karla is offering right now on her website, here.


Boreal Sons, Live at the Lantern in Calgary

This week on the show we bring you a rare Key of A live recording. We caught Boreal Sons performing at The Lantern (Community Church) in Calgary earlier this month. (They played a lovely opening set for a 4-band show that closed with Reuben and the Dark, who we also recorded for future broadcast -- stay tuned for news on when that will air.)
Also on the show, a new, original song, Long Love this Land, created for an Alberta agriculture promo video from ATB, featuring music by Mike Shields with Russell Broom and vocals by Curtis Glas and Amy Thiessen.
We'll preview the new album from Wil, (aka William Mimnaugh) Hold Me On, set for release next week. Watch for Wil on tour in Alberta later this month and into December.
Plus the new single, Lucky Day, from Dragon Fli Empire
