  • Music in the Forest - This Frontier Needs Heroes

      JunJune  30, 2019
    • This is the kick-off to our summer series of Music in the Forest that will be happening throughout the summer at both Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park & Cold Lake Provincial Park. 

      This Frontier Needs Heroes is the moniker of singer-songwriter Brad Lauretti. His determination and DIY ethos has brought him on an epic journey around the world, playing clubs, houses, and festivals. This Frontier Needs Heroes has previously released three albums This Frontier Needs Heroes, The Future, and Hooky. This new collection of songs REAL JOB was written over a two-week period during October 2015 while Lauretti was attending the Stetson Kennedy Songwriting Residency at Beluthahatchee Park (Fruit Cove, FL), this is the same magical place where Woody Guthrie wrote over 80 songs, and Kennedy, himself, wrote some of his greatest works providing a solid source of inspiration. While the overall sound may seem to be simple, the lyrics will challenge you to think. There’s nothing “easy-listening” about it.  To check out some of his music visit his YouTube Channel. 

      'Music in the Forest' is happening in collaboration between Alberta Parks & SideDoor, sponsored by boom 103.5, boom 95.3, and KOOL 101.3.

  • Music in the Forest - Myc Sharratt

      JulyJuly  12, 2019
    • This is part of our summer series of Music in the Forest that will be happening throughout the summer at both Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park & Cold Lake Provincial Park. 

      Hide in the Light, the latest album from award-winning singer-songwriter Myc Sharratt, captures a feeling fit for a joyful journey home at summers end. With Juno award-winning producer Ryan Stewart at the helm the collection is a showcase of the intimate, more subtle side of Sharratt's vocal rarely revealed in the Vancouver Island product's first four independent albums. Beautifully woven ethereal sonic landscapes with lush electric guitars over dreamy beds of synthesizers are the backdrop for lyrical content touching on love, loss and regret. A hard-working man of the road Sharratt has crafted his live show through years of touring throughout Canada, USA and Ireland. To check out some of his music visit his YouTube Channel.

  • Music in the Forest - Matt Blais

      JulyJuly  27, 2019
    • This is part of our summer series of Music in the Forest that will be happening throughout the summer at both Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park & Cold Lake Provincial Park. 

      Powerful vocals, electrifying harmonica, and intense performances define Matt Blais. The rock’n’roll troubadour’s latest release “Fool's Gold“ (Fall 2018) is an edgy and evocative protest song for the modern era. With cutting social commentary and haunting sonics the new track goes behind the curtain searching for authenticity in an increasingly deceptive world. "Just 'cause it glitters doesn't mean it's got soul." Hailing from Calgary the charismatic Blais expands the rock genre by adding a vintage blues edge that, paired with his honest, accessible songwriting style, has resonated with his Canadian audience. His live performances, whether solo or full band, are diverse events balancing high energy, sweaty-rock with emotionally vulnerable ballads. He has been described as Springsteen-esque in stage presence and songwriting ability. To check out some of his music visit his YouTube Channel. 

      'Music in the Forest' is happening in collaboration between Alberta Parks & SideDoor, sponsored by boom 103.5, boom 95.3, and KOOL 101.3.

  • Music in the Forest - Over the Moon

      AugAugust  09, 2019
    • This is the last part of our summer series of Music in the Forest that will be happening throughout the summer at both Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park & Cold Lake Provincial Park.

      Canada's roots/swing duo "Over The Moon" are totally immersed in real cowboy country. When you set up home in the foothills of Alberta's Rocky Mountains, it's inevitable there will be a strong sense of place and the rhythms of the land when you start to play music.The couple's debut album, mostly written and recorded on the ranch where they live, reflects the pulse of life living in a territory that is rugged and beautiful. It's a wild ride from 40/50's western swing and Appalachian old-time, to cowboy blues, all featuring their meant-to-be vocals and a wide array of acoustic instruments. Suzanne Levesque and Craig Bignell are both award winning multi-instrumentaist/vocalists that have spent most of their lives as studio and live performance musicians for other artists. After they discovered that their voices blended together so well that people were often moved to tears upon hearing them sing together, they decided to try their own project. To check out some of their music visit their website.

  • Music in the Forest - Rory Taillon

      SeptSeptember  20, 2019
    • Kicking off the 3rd annual Lakeland Dark Sky Celebration, with a musical performance Rory Tallion will be performaing in the new Community Facility on Long Island in Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park. 

      Ottawa-based singer/songwriter Rory Taillon is a road warrior, touring across the country and back again. He has the soul of the East coast but the sound of the West in his songs. His latest album, ‘Only Whispers’ is the work of a one man Wintersleep, a one man Tea Party, a one man Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, with a voice to match the majesty of the Rockies. He has charted; earshot, community radio, hitting number three on the National Folk Charts - sitting next to Buffy St. Marie. But like Buffy, Rory Taillon is no coffeehouse kat seeking accolades over lattes. He is no beatless poet. He is a classically trained singer, a multi-instrumentalist and vocally can turn his hand to a variety of genres. The acoustic is for touring, there’s only so much room in a civic for gear, merch afterall and that voice, that voice needs its own tour bus. Its a band onto itself. Because Rory Taillon is not just an entertainer he is a performer. It’s just that simple, when Rory Taillon sings everything stops and when its starts again it’s all changed. It’s just that simple, like folk.

      To check out some of his music visit his YouTube Channel.
