Little Concerts My Son Ted
My Son Ted's brand of Celtic eclectic folk rock fusion has charmed audiences in Calgary and southern Alberta since the band's inception in 1999. With a combination of original songs, traditional material and esoteric interpretations of some oft-heard pieces, My Son Ted loves to energize and uplift.

Founded by Regina songwriter/guitarist Brian Volke, the band's current line-up includes: singer/songwriter Christie Simmons bringing her folk roots and heartfelt voice; Robert J McConnell adds his rock steady bass as well as friendship;  Colin Peters filling in the gaps on the fiddle; Brad Uphill originally signed on as a Bohran player but has gradually expanded his percussive purview; and Shawn Kingston bringing his Mark Knopfler/Jimi Hendrix stylings along with his David Crosby style voice.


Emily Triggs is a bred-in-the-bones roots musician. In her debut album When Guinevere Went Under, the guitarist, singer-songwriter takes you on a journey through influences and experiences that have shaped her folk/roots sound.  "I'm pushing the boundaries of what I consider folk  and bringing in influences I've had over the years," she says. Those influences span the Deep South with the likes of Lead Belly, through Texas blues, strains from the Appalachian Mountains to her early years in French Canada.

As a songwriter, her philosophy is simple: all of life's experiences, for better or worse, can be mined for the raw materials of a good song - hence her mantra of "no regrets". She is an observer of the world around us.  Emily has been singing festivals, clubs and coffee houses and has become known as an established singer songwriter. She has been a member of Calgary-based bands: "The House Doctors", "The Fallen Angel Band", "June Gloom" and "Magnolia Buckskin".
