Two of Canada’s finest are coming through! Don’t sleep on this one Fernie!

/// MICHAEL BERNARD FITZGERALD ///

Michael Bernard Fitzgerald (MBF) is a singer and songwriter from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. A touring troubadour, most of his time is spent on stage playing clubs, theatres and festivals across North America. He is a dog man with a good plan and two hands.

MBF has shared the stage and toured with Joel Plaskett, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Steve Winwood, Third Eye Blind, Sam Roberts, Stars, K-OS, The Wallflowers, Elliott Brood, Lights and many more. He’s also played Firefly Festival, Mountain Jam, Calgary Folk Music Festival, X Fest, Virgin Fest, Winnpeg Folk Festival The Calgary Stampede and Capital Ex.

/// JJ Shiplett ///

Rugged, raspy and reserved, JJ Shiplett is a true artist. Unapologetically himself, the Alberta born singer-songwriter and performer is bold in range and musical creativity, with a passion and reverence for the art of music and performance that has captured the attention of music fans across the country. A troubadour whose songs resonate with emotional sincerity and an underdog’s enduring hope, he pens anthemic songs that make you believe in something in this hard world, and others that convince you to soak it all in whiskey ‘n’ wine and just go dancin’. Shiplett’s music is all heart: convincing, compelling and resonant. He’s currently putting the finishing touches on his self-penned and produced debut album.

Where Does The Time Go?

Griz Days 2015 Fernie Winter Festival parade - The Griz, Mayor Mary

We had a such a fun weekend in Fernie, I forgot to post on Small Town Social! That’s what happens when the sun comes out and the kids want to be outside from morning to night.

This next weekend is going to fly by just as quickly. Griz Days are upon us.

I’m not going to list all the events going on in Fernie next weekend because there is this really informative website called ferniegrizdays.com which will making your planning a breeze.

 

Highlights for us: Dummy Downhill, Craft Fair and the Parade. We will try and watch the fireworks and maybe participate in the scavenger hunt but the rest will be bonus if we see or participate in them. Time flies when you’re having fun.
