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.

Music Break – Michael Bernard Fitzgerald

Michael Bernard Fitzgerald - Singer from Calgary playing two shows in Fernie
Michael Bernard Fitzgerald (or MBF) will be playing his tunes in Fernie on the 29th (at Kodiak Lounge) and 31st of December (at Bulldogs) – two of the main reasons I wanted to give the guy his own Music Break. He’s so cute, reason number 3, you want to pinch his cheeks when he smiles. OHHHhHH YouuuUUU. He’s a bit jazzy, a bit poppy, a bit folky, so if you like John Mayer, you’ll probably like MBF.
