POSTPONED: T. Buckley at the King Eddy

Folk singer-songwriter T. Buckley closes out a cross-Canada tour at the Calgary’s iconic King Eddy.

About T. Buckley:
T. Buckley’s songs blew across the prairies like a Nor’easter, hanging on to their creator as he stormed into the Calgary scene. Sprinkling bits of East Coast lore seemed natural to Buckley, a Calgary native, considering his extended clan was still making music in those parts. Like the wave of Maritimers who’d left home for the promise of the West, Buckley fused those distinct regions of Canada in his early compositions, producing two albums as leader of renowned Calgary group The T. Buckley Trio.

Some of the West’s most mystifying behaviour was captured in Buckley’s songs, often driving the emotional intensity of his lyrics. A lover whisked away by a wheatland gust. Partner’s moods as unpredictable as a prairie spring day. Down-and-out characters who linger under the radar of one of the richest cities in the world. With feet solidly planted on prairie soil, buffered by the foothills of his hometown, Buckley established himself as central to the Calgary roots and country music scenes, with weekly residencies at some of the city’s top venues. Embraced by his fellow songwriters and his audience, he soon found himself travelling to Folk Alliance conferences supported by local promoters, and conducting regional tours that introduced him to a Western Canadian audience. The T. Buckley Trio, made up of fellow Calgarians Derek Pulliam and Tim Leacock, were known for their tight instrumentals behind Buckley’s smooth vocals. His new approach to roots and country music, influenced by songwriters like J.J. Cale, Guy Clark, and Lyle Lovett, made him an intergenerational favourite.
