Southern Alberta Showcase at the Rocky Mountain Folk Club
Three great acts come together in April to showcase the amazing talent on our doorstep here in southern Alberta.
Jim and Lynda McLennan have been musically active in southern Alberta for many years. Lynda was founder of the Big Rock Singers in Okotoks and Jim has performed solo and in groups most of his adult life. Today they perform mainly as a duo and specialize in arranging and adapting songs from all genres to their two-voice/one guitar format.
The Jansen Sisters began singing publicly on the streets of Calgary, armed with their busking license and accompanied by their Dad on guitar. Most notable achievements to date are winning the $1000 Grand Prize for the 18-and-Under Originals in Long and McQuades 2013 national Head-to-Head Music Showdown, and being runners-up in the 2014 Calgary Folk Festival Songwriting Contest in the Sonic Youth division.
The Backyard Betties are a country-folk trio based out of Calgary who are sure to get your toes tapping. Their high energy show features engaging and heartfelt original songs written by lead singer Nancy Laberge. The blend of harmonies by guitarist Mark Cassano and drummer Sarah Nielsen provide a rich sound that captivates. The Betties had a blast performing at the Calgary Folk Music Festival in 2018!
