Live from Music Mile: T. Buckley and Emily Triggs

The first Canadian and 10th global edition of Music Cities Convention is coming to Alberta on Feb 10th and 11th, and is presented alongside West Anthem, the National Music Centre, and Alberta Music. What better way to celebrate than with some LIVE MUSIC on Calgary’s very own Music Mile!

T. Buckley and Emily Triggs will perform at the historic King Eddy on February 11.

About T. Buckley
T. Buckley stands quietly among a disappearing ilk of true craftsmen. Shadowed by his Western roots, his soul and voice are unmistakably genuine, and the result is a class of songsmith long revered and scarcely achieved. An award-winning songwriter, T. Buckley looks through the lens of life with his sixth album, Frame By Frame, released November 5, 2021 via Fallen Tree Records. Buckley delivers another trademark smooth and soulful vocal performance that makes him one of western Canada’s most talked-about artists. The recording sessions were fused in the winter of 2020 at the National Music Centre in Calgary, Alberta, with notable producer Jeff Kynoch and a core group of players: Jesse Dollimont on mandolin, guitar and harmony vocals; Mitch Jay on stringed things; Steve Fletcher on keys and organs; Dan Stadnicki on drums; and Keith Rempel on bass. Kynoch’s open-minded sonic approach makes for an excellent pairing with Buckley’s spirit of creatively pushing the envelope.

About Emily Triggs
Following Emily’s widely accepted release ‘When Guinevere Went Under’, Triggs is busting down walls that confine an artist to expectations and genres with her soon to be released album ‘Middletown’. Middletown captures the undeniably authentic style of songwriting and arrangement that reflects the world of music Emily grew up in. A prolific songwriter with a passion for storytelling, her songs showcase her honest, pure vocals. While sometimes likened to Patty Griffin and Michelle Shocked, Emily has her own brand of folk/roots filled with a lifetime of music and influences. In true fashion, Middletown will not let listeners down as Emily continues to push boundaries of the folk/roots genre with influences spanning from Texas blues to her years in French Canada. The youngest of five growing up in a mix of English and French culture, it was in living room jam sessions with local and visiting musicians that Emily learned the history and art of lyrical composition and performance. Emily shares stories through songs with an endearing simplicity that belies their emotional depth.

 

Sound production equipment for the King Eddy is provided by PK Sound and Yamaha.
