The YYSCENE presents: Songsmith Sundays with Clinton St. John and Zachary Lucky
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.
About our Songsmith Sundays, Host, Clinton St. John:
Multi-instrumentalist, Clinton St. John, is a Canadian singer-songwriter from Delburne, AB, basing himself in Calgary, AB, where he has lived for the last twenty years. Having taken many forms over the years including performing with a seven-piece band and as a solo performer, Clinton currently performs his material as a duo. His songs have strong narrative and dream-like qualities, finding influences in folk, blues, country, rock and psychedelic music. As a visual artist, he is prone to combine his musical landscapes with surreal drawings and paintings.Special thanks to the fine folks at The YYSCENEfor supporting this series!
Zachary Lucky is unapologetically old-school country, armed with a husky, baritone voice – he sings of Canadian places and people as knowingly as he might Townes Van Zandt or the Rio Grande. It’s a relatable show on many levels, and conjures universal feelings that have passed through our collective timelines. Already hailed as a master storyteller by outlets ranging from No Depression to The Globe and Mail, and recently nominated best solo artist of the year at the 2017 Canadian Folk Music Awards, Lucky’s Everywhere A Man Can Be is his most powerful statement to date.
