Join us for an evening of lyrical complexity channeled through the timeless voices of singer-songwriter Bailey Kate and old-time artist Amy Nelson as they perform live on the historic King Eddy stage.
About Bailey Kate
There is something weightless about Bailey Kate’s songs, they pass by with a kind of supernatural ease. Timeless songwriting and dextrous arrangements are the cornerstones of her debut record “Within / Without”. The songs give a first impression of simplicity, but layers of harmonic and lyrical complexity reward the attentive listener. On “Within / Without”, Bailey explores themes of relationships, community, and existential dread with clear-eyed sincerity. She often performs and collaborates with a group of extremely talented friends – Joel Gray, Dylan Wagner, Mickey Hayward, Joel Stretch, and Logan Amon.
About Amy Nelson
Calgary’s Amy Nelson is a conduit of voices from the past, reverentially channeling the sounds of depression-era blues and Appalachian mountain music through the raw reality of an Albertan feminist. Haunting and honest, gritty and passionate, Nelson finger-picks her way through guitar and banjo tunes that bind together wit, beauty, and truth.
The sweet, sad longing and play of words and phrases, delivered in a voice from days far gone; reaching through the ages and channeled through. Amy Nelson began her music career as an old time banjoist, singing songs older than the hills. As time wore on, she began to dedicate herself to not only the preservation of the folk music she became known for, but by writing songs that reflected her own view of the world too. 1st place winner of the Ship and Anchor song competition, numerous radio play for her recordings, and marked as a festival stand out, Amy’s songs display a veracity and rawness that is uniquely her own.
Amy’s debut album ‘Educated Woman’ released in 2019 was named top ten albums of the year by Beatroute magazine and CJSW.
