The YYSCENE presents: Songsmith Sundays with Clinton St. John
Join us for a chill afternoon of live tunes and a side of all day Southern brunch. Every Sunday, the King Eddy is teaming up with The YYSCENE to present brand new music, courtesy of Calgary’s own Clinton St. John.
Each week, Clinton pairs with a local songwriter for an opportunity to play brand new music on the Eddy’s legendary stage.
