Join us for the King Eddy Opry — a distinguished evening featuring special performances from the best that country and folk music have to offer, filling the historic King Eddy with songs for the soul.
On May 4, Samantha Savage Smith brings her confessional, glistening nuggets of dreamy-indie-pop to the stage for the King Eddy Opry, hosted by Calgary’s songwriting sweethearts Carter Felker and Amy Nelson.
About Samantha Savage Smith
Fake Nice, the third album from Calgary singer, songwriter, and musician Samantha Savage Smith, is her most accomplished album to date by a mile. Following the release of her last critically acclaimed full-length Fine Lines, she took a short hiatus, logging hours in Calgary indie institutions Lab Coast and Crystal Eyes, and helped start a record label from the ground up. So while Fake Nice has been a few years in the making, it’s worth the wait.
Both Exclaim! and Cups & Cakes listed Fake Nice as one of their most anticipated albums of the year, and since its release in April, it’s been racking up stellar reviews. Exclaim! called it “an excellent album whose shimmering surface reveals deeper, refracting depths in questions of person and place” and The Scene hailed it as “extraordinarily wonderful, confident and bountiful”; the album spent a number of weeks at #1 on CKUA’s charts, and was nominated for Recording of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards.
About Amy Nelson and Carter Felker
Alberta’s very own honky-tonk sweethearts, Amy Nelson and Carter Felker, will host our exciting new King Eddy Opry series. Showcasing some of Alberta’s finest country and roots music, these two bring their own incomparable blend of storytelling through song, cutting through the noise. No pretension, just good ol’ country music.
