I’m going through the Wapiti Music Festival playlist to prepare myself for August. I only know a couple bands (slightly) in the lineup so I plan to get started now, if I’m going to sing along to any of these songs.
New Works by Troy Bubba Cook, paintings and music, booze and hors d’oeuvres. 7-11 tonight! More details here.
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.
