kirsten Ludwig May 2017
Although blooming from the suburbs of Calgary, AB, Kirsten Ludwig belongs to no set of roads and dwells in transition. A nomad at heart, Ludwig finds true solace in her quiet ambition, gentle voice, and mellotron-induced thoughts. With a soft demeanour and heavy mind, Kirsten Ludwig achieves simultaneous vulnerability, strength, grace, and madness.

Sunday, May 7 >>> Bardic Form <<< Noon
Screen Shot 2017-05-03 at 2.07.40 PM
Bardic Form plays with a passion and energy that drove them to their unique sound. Justin and Reece perform original compositions, sets and arrangements of traditional tunes, and their performance is as dynamic as their influences to keep your attention from the start. They incorporate influences from Celtic traditional tunes and sets (including the use of the Celtic whistle), Eastern European melodies and progressions, percussive rhythmic flavours of Flamenco, and intense passages from melodic metal. Another prominent aspect of their music is the incorporation of dynamics, which can be excellently portrayed by the acoustic guitar. Each song is painstakingly crafted, and they are continually pushing themselves to explore and experiment with their intuitive complementary styles.

Sunday, May 7 >>> Big Curly <<< 1-3pm Screen Shot 2017-05-04 at 12.54.57 PM
BIG CURLY aka Chantal Padavattan is a born and raised Calgary girl with a love for all things local (events, food, music – you name it). Her musical tastes are a reflection of her diverse background and heritage. Expect sweet island beats mixed with classic old-school bangers for a vibe that feels like summer time, all year long.
