Folk. Blues. Roots. It’s all headed to the #KingEddyYYC stage, thanks to Bebe BuckSkin, Carter Felker, and Jake Ian.
About Bebe BuckSkin:
Born and raised an “Indigenous Cowgirl” in the great muskeg of Northern Alberta, Bebe Buckskin; a Cree/Metis artist, is the embodiment of Northern grit and soul. Classic blues – rock, swamp – soul is the term that best describes the anchor of her music, with infusions that skim upon outlaw country, folk and R&B. This ex-rodeo queen swamp woman is unafraid to bare her raw intensity on stage, making for a riveting and authentic performance. Velvety robust vocals paired with a soulfully dynamic band, floats the listener away on a journey through soundscapes of nostalgic inspirations. Deep dense decadence for the senses.
About Jake Ian:
Down the cold, lonesome gravel roads of Warspite, Alberta, lay a peaceful paradise that Jake Ian once called home; a place that time forgot; a place that has shaped the shady, genuine, honest, and desperate characters that find their way into his wonderfully authentic songs. Ian’s deep respect for the working man and obvious soft spot for the underdog makes its way into countless themes of real life, real love and heartbreak.
Ian’s influences are planted deeply in the past, drawing inspiration from songwriting greats such as Townes Van Zandt, John Prine and Bob Dylan. These vintage inspirations shine through in Ian’s music, a ragged combination of folk, country and blues that is touching, authentic and real. Ian has toured and performed in bars, coffee shops, theatres, folk clubs and festivals across Canada and has shared the stage with performers such as Hawksley Workman, Kelly Joe Phelps, Bill Bourne and Tim Hus.
About Carter Felker:
Born and raised in the Prairies, Carter Felker’s eyes have seen the length of the wheat fields through many Winter mornings, and the stretch of the sun through many short lived Summers. He has labored, he has lost, and he has loved.
Carter uses his own experience, and his desire to tell a story to create honest, human-made, country music. Enjoy.
