OFF-Country: Tim Hus with Amy Nelson
Albertan country vagabond Tim Hus and dreamy country-folk songstress Amy Nelson kick off Canadian Country Music Week at the King Eddy.
Music Mile welcomes the CCMAs and Country Music Week with OFF-Country from September 5-7: 3 days, 16 venues and 45+ shows along the Mile, celebrating local and international musicians who are just a little off country. Enjoy blues, roots, bluegrass, rock and more at your fave venues.
Stony Plain Records’ recording artist Tim Hus has been heralded by both Corb Lund and Stompin’ Tom Connors as one of their favorite homegrown songwriters. He’s an Albertan through and through and one who takes the history of Canada seriously, capturing the pioneering spirit that motivates and inspires truck drivers, miners, rum runners, trappers, men of the land, men of the sea, and vagabonds.
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 rural folk music she became known for, but by writing songs that reflected her own view of the world too. 1st place winner of the 2016 Ship and Anchor song competition, numerous radio play for her home recordings, and marked as a festival stand out, Amy’s songs display a veracity and rawness that is uniquely her own.
To accommodate as many live music fans as possible, we offer both seats and standing room at our shows. Seats are first come, first serve. We recommend arriving early if you’d like to be seated during the performance.
Sound production equipment for the King Eddy is provided by PK Sound and Yamaha.
