Sled Island and CKXU present Paisley Fields, The Rifle County Players, Skinny Dyck, and Liquor Mountain performing live at the legendary King Eddy.

About Paisley Fields:

Queer troubadour Paisley Fields is a torchbearer of the alt-country tradition, both with his music and as a former touring member of Lavender Country. His rich storytelling approaches triumph and heartbreak with wit and humour, valiantly building bigger tables of inclusivity within the Western genre. With heart and tenacity, Fields represents the best of what country music can be.

About The Rifle Country Players:

Country act The Rifle County Players began as a way for a few local punks to play covers and explore outside of their comfort. Flash-forward a few years and it’s become a formal pursuit — though still with a bit of tongue-in-cheek. Tracks like “Linguine Western” and “Cardiac Ranch” embrace what makes classic country great, including a slice of camp.

About Skinny Dyck:

Ryan Dyck is a Prairies singer-songwriter whose tongue is firmly in cheek as Skinny Dyck. His easygoing output of folk melodies will subtly veer you off the country path into a parallel atmosphere of nostalgic twang, best heard on his latest single “Can’t Change the Colour of Your Eyes.” Join Dyck on an alt-country ride with original, mischievous intentions.

About Liquor Mountain:

On the title track of the East Dooley EP, Liquor Mountain fully embraces rollicking pop country to convey the dust-swept imagery of Alberta’s Badlands. “Gathering Flowers for the Master’s Bouquet,” meanwhile, is a psych-tinged cover of a country standard that’s fit for head-banging or two-stepping. Expect either/or when this alt-country outfit returns to Sled Island.
