What’s Stampede without some local love? Get your fill of Calgary-bred country-folk with Mariel Buckley at the Eddy.
In honour of Calgary’s favourite 10 days of the year, King Eddy is bringing you a multi-genre roundup of sizzlin’ hot tunes for Stampede 2019. Catch this country-and-more lineup all day and all night on a historic stage just 600 metres from Stampede Park.
About Mariel Buckley:
Few performers combine the lyrical heartfelt authenticity of classic country music with a steely-eyed intensity that compels an audience’s attention like Calgary, Alberta’s Mariel Buckley. Amidst a sea of neon-Nashville superstars, Buckley offers a crunchy, roots alternative. It’s the kind of sound many musicians take years searching for, and the arrival of Buckley’s spectacular sophomore full-length album, Driving In The Dark, proves that she hasn’t taken a moment for granted. Delivering on the promise of her previous album, Motorhome (and then some), Driving In The Dark finds Buckley planting her flag firmly as a songwriter who’s here for the long haul, one with the chops to hang with the greats she finds herself sharing stages with more often these days.
She continues to depict the trials of everyday life with unflinching honesty, painting poetically plainspoken highs and lows, long nights and hard days, all filtered through her wry, no-bullshit perspective. Much of it was stoked by the impressive team she assembled for the recording sessions, led by producer Leeroy Stagger at his Rebeltone Ranch studio in Lethbridge, Alberta.
About Emily Triggs:
Emily Triggs is a bred-in-the-bones roots musician. In her debut album When Guinevere Went Under, the guitarist, singer-songwriter takes you on a journey through influences and experiences that have shaped her folk/roots sound.
“I’m pushing the boundaries of what I consider folk – and bringing in influences I’ve had over the years,” she says. Those influences span the Deep South with the likes of Lead Belly, through Texas blues, strains from the Appalachian Mountains to her early years in French Canada.
A regular performer at family gatherings and parties since she was small enough to fit inside a guitar case, Emily’s natural talent was honed in Hemmingford, Quebec. Her mother, Louise Demers Triggs was a dancer in the folk troupe Les Feux-Follets. Her father, Stanley Triggs, was a folk singer in the 1960s and has songs that can be found within Smithsonian Folkways.
