We’ve gone country! Join us for some boot stompin’ live music this Stampede when the best of Alberta country music meets the historic King Eddy.
Roots-country outfit Blake Reid Band take the stage with their authentic sound and heartfelt storytelling for a Stampede show on Wednesday, July 13.
About Blake Reid Band
The Blake Reid Band pays homage to the craft of making authentic music rooted in the traditions of country and great storytelling. While incorporating flavours of folk, roots, bluegrass, Americana, outlaw country and more, the Blake Reid Band stays true to the story. Whether you were raised in the deep south of the USA, the evergreen forests of Northern Canada, the countryside of the UK, or anywhere in between, their sound, their energy, their stories, will awaken your heart, stir your soul and take you home.
Blake’s incredible, and what seems like effortless, songwriting brings to life heartfelt folktales of real life experiences that we can all instantly relate to. Songs of hardship, pain, joy, remembrance, family, friends, hope, and love. They are often centered around working class, blue collar, salt-of-the-earth people. Characters who work hard, deal with tough times, usually working with the land or their tools, applying their craft to earn a living and to make a life for themselves and their loved ones.
Blake and the guys are first and foremost friends, bonded by common values, love of music, performing, and a mutual appreciation and respect for their incredible abilities as musicians. There are no weak links in this line up as each of the members brings an impressive and honest musical repertoire to the group. In short, these guys can play… they are the real damn deal.
