From July 5–14, King Eddy will be transformed into a swingin’ Stampede saloon. So whether you’re warming up for a night of boot stompin’ or winding down from a day on the midway, come kick it at Calgary’s legendary live music venue
11:30 am – 1:00 pm: Eamon McGrath
1:00 – 3:00 pm: The Bobby Tenderloin Universe
About Eamon McGrath:
With over 300 songs written and recorded, album of the year credits, and multiple continent-spanning tours, Eamon McGrath has developed a body of work that could rival that of any artist 15 years his senior. This is the house that punk rock built: a fierce DIY attitude and constantly-changing style has guided McGrath across the globe on countless tours, stories from which have been cultivated in innumerable journal entries and song lyrics. He is based in Toronto, Ontario.
About The Bobby Tenderloin Universe:
The Bobby Tenderloin Universe is a band, an album, a community and a movement, but most of all it’s an excuse to don your western wear and give yourself over to the song and dance at the heart of every BT show. Bobby enraptures his audiences with his deep, rich voice and thoughtful, tender lyrics, rustling up a fresh new take on the old country we all love.
With over 100,000 kilometres of highway, railroad and sky behind him, McGrath continues to blaze an impassioned trail of music that finds a sound and voice somewhere between punk rock, country, folk and rock and roll. Taking him to locations as geographically diverse as Reykjavik, Palma de Majorca, Warsaw, and everywhere in between, McGrath and his guitar represent a new dawn of singer-songwriting that’s injected with the raw, fierce energy of punk rock: not in the sense of an acoustic performer hollering at the top of his lungs to simulate the energy of a full band, but instead something more rooted in a passionate commitment to your craft and a blind and zealous determination to your vision, wrapped in a sonic texture as rough as the road itself.
About Stampede at the King 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. Catch this country-and-more lineup all day and all night on a historic stage just 600 metres from Stampede Park.
