Home Routes Concert Series: Sweet Alibi

Home Routes Concert Series: Sweet Alibi

Western Canadian Music Award Winners, Sweet Alibi, have been captivating audiences across Canada. The Winnipeg-based folk/pop band infuses its signature harmonies with influences of everything from folk to country to soul, without a hint of shame. Sweet Alibi's Jess Rae Ayre, Amber Quesnel, and Michelle Anderson share personal experiences that are genuinely felt in song. Tom Power of CBC Radio 2 describes the band: "If Mumford and Sons and the Supremes had a love child, you would name it Sweet Alibi". Audiences have been raving nationwide about the band’s performances at Winnipeg Folk Fest, Juno Fest, Canada Day in Ottawa, and many concert series. Currently you can find the band touring material from their CFMA/WCMA nominated release We’ve Got To (produced by Rusty Matyas of Imaginary Cities).

Sweet Alibi formed in 2009 when long-time Winnipeg friends Jessica Rae Ayre and Michelle Anderson joined forces with Winnipeg newcomer, Amber Quesnel. Jessica brought soul and blues, Amber brought folk, and Michelle brought jazz and classical influences. From the start, Sweet Alibi put a solid focus on three-part harmony from all three members and complemented that with Jessica on guitar, Amber on guitar and ukulele, and Michelle on guitar and banjo. The band eventually found they were very comfortable in moving seamlessly among R&B, folk and pop.

The band's soulful, folk-pop-blended debut, produced by ex-Crash Test Dummies member Mitch Dorge, was released in 2011. The album earned the talented trio a nomination for best vocalist at the 2012 Canadian Folk Music Awards. Western and eastern tours soon followed, with an added rhythm section. The ensuing years that led up to the release of their current album were a very tumultuous time with personal struggles for all the band members. This motivated them to create a more introspective and inspirational sophomore album by answering their own nagging question about whether there would be a follow up album at all. Released in November of 2013, the album “We’ve Got To... " was the answer. Further touring of the current release rewarded the band quite handsomely:

• an appearance at Junofest 2014 in Winnipeg on March 29/14
• winner for Roots Group Recording of the Year at the 2014 Western Canadian Music Awards
• a nomination for Vocal Group of the Year at the 2014 Canadian Folk Music Awards
• performances at some of the most recognized festivals in Canada

Keep your ears to the ground for the November 2015 release of Sweet Alibi's third album, Walking in the Dark. Walking in the Dark is a collection of songs written by Jess, Amber and Michelle over the last few years, and captured flawlessly by Juno-winning producer, Murray Pulver (The Brothers Landreth, Crash Test Dummies). Walking in the Dark is a melodically rewarding exploration of relationships, heartache, loss of loved ones and the search for balance when living life on the road. Sweet Alibi’s powerhouse vocal harmonies and memorable songs have never been stronger.

Tickets are $20 (all proceeds to the artist), BYOB if you wish. 

Please RSVP to Ed Sands at 403-938-3013.

Home Routes Concert Series: Ben Bedford

"Ben Bedford has proven himself to be a truly inspired and talented storyteller,” according to Arthur Wood (Maverick). With the release of his third album, What We Lost, Bedford establishes himself as a songwriter in the tradition of musical icons ranging from Bill Morrissey to Woody Guthrie, casting individual people in the theater of the American landscape. A true son of the heartland, Bedford dips into the deep inkwell of classic American literature and writes with the ‘old soul’ quality of his literary idols, such as John Steinbeck and Toni Morrison. In the past eight years since the release of his first album, Bedford has played his songs for audiences all over the United States hitting notable venues such as The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Folkstage in Chicago, and the Fayetteville Roots Festival in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

His music has received extensive airplay on folk and roots radio in the U.S., as well as in Europe, taking him overseas on several occasions for concert dates on the continent and in the United Kingdom. Notable dates there include Izzy Young’s famed Folklore Centrum in Stockholm, Sweden, Toogenblik in Brussells, Belgium, and The Twickenham Folk Club in London, England. All three of Bedford’s albums have charted highly on the Euro Americana charts and the Folk-DJ charts with What We Lost also charting highly on the Roots Music Report charts. Bedford’s music has been played on National Public Radio’s Car Talk and was featured in The Sounding Board, the official newsletter of the renowned C.F. Martin Guitar Company. In addition to independent terrestrial stations, Bedford’s music has received extensive airplay from syndicated programs such as “River City Folk” (syndicated by WFMT), “The Midnight Special” (syndicated by WFMT), BBC-Scotland, and the SIRIUS XM station “The Village”, all helping to gain Bedford a wider geographical audience. In July of 2010, Bedford was named one of the “50 most significant Folk singer-songwriters of the past 50 years” by Rich Warren of WFMT-Chicago. The list also included such stalwarts as Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, Judy Collins and John Prine.

Tickets are $20 (all proceeds to the artist), BYOB if you wish.

Home Routes Concert Series: The Barefoot Movement

  • 2 Cimarron Springs Road Okotoks, Alberta (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Heartfelt, energetic, and down home. Heralded by CMT Edge as "one of the most promising bands on the bluegrass scene," the music of the Nashville based group The Barefoot Movement is as down to earth as their intention for members of their audience: sit back, relax, take your shoes off, and stay a while. All the worries and frustrations of the world melt away as this charming, acoustic band takes listeners back to a simpler place and time. Whether you're seeking emotional ballads or rip-roaring barn-burners, you can expect a collection of music that offers something for everyone. With two full length albums, an EP of traditional music, several cross-country tours, and appearances at some of the top bluegrass festivals in the United States already under their belt, the possibilities for this act are endless. The group has enjoyed almost non-stop touring including a trip to Burkina Faso, Africa where they were guests of the American Embassy, and in September of 2014, they received a Momentum Award, naming them "Band of the Year" by the International Bluegrass Music Association. 

Crowding around a single microphone, their show is as fun to watch as it is to hear, and often begs the question, how has no one lost an eye from a collision with the fiddle bow? The smiles on the faces of the band are obvious displays of the joy and excitement they feel when performing and the audience shares in the fun. With effortlessly executed transitions, the pacing between the softer and more vigorous numbers constantly has fans on the edge of their seats. 

The "movement" can be traced back to the teen years of singer-songwriter and fiddler Noah Wall, of Oxford, NC. Just as she had begun penning her first compositions, she met mandolinist Tommy Norris their senior year of high school. Convinced of their musical chemistry and driven by mutual ambition, they continued to build the band from the ground up throughout their college careers. While Tommy studied classical music and recording engineering at Western Carolina University, Noah chose East Tennessee State, particularly for their Bluegrass, Old-time and Country Music Program. Here she began to shape her musical identity, under the tutelage of ETSU's renown staff, and found an instrumental home in old time fiddling. With the addition of versatile guitarist and singer Alex Conerly of Hattiesburg, MS in 2013, the lineup was complete with all the elements that make up the Barefoot sound: lush harmonies, thoughtful instrumentation, and memorable melodies.

It has now been seven years since The Barefoot Movement took off their shoes and took to the stage. Hard work and talent have taken them from east coast to west, from north to south, and even across the Atlantic Ocean. They have appeared in Country Weekly Magazine, RollingStone.com, CMT Edge, Music City Roots, and Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour. Their original music was featured on the Outdoor Channel's program "Huntin' the World: Southern Style" and their music video for their popular song "Second Time Around" has been seen nationally on the Zuus Country Network. They have been selected as showcase artists at both the International Bluegrass Music Association and the Americana Festival conferences and were first runners up at the 2013 Telluride Bluegrass Festival's New Band Competition.

With crowds teeming with enthusiasm at every performance, and new fans joining the fold across the nation, word is surely spreading and the message is clear: barefoot is better. Won't you join the movement?

Tickets are $20 (all proceeds to the artist), BYOB if you wish.

GhostBoy is the latest collaboration from Denis Dufresne, formerly of Pear (CCMA Winner) teaming with Aaron Young and Leon Leontaridis, who was with The Canadian Tenors.  Their version of O Holy Night is spectacular…take a look on YouTube.

Also joining us is well-known folk and roots artist John Wort Hannam.  Samm Smith will have just returned from her go round with The Voice, although she is sworn to secrecy, so we’ll just have to tune in next season to find out how she does.  Tanya Ryan just received another nomination as ACMA Female Artist of the Year. 

At $20 plus a non-perishable food bank donation, this is amazing value and a very worthy cause. Last year we raised $25,000 and several truckloads of foodbank items. 

Tickets at Okotoks Sobey’s, Safeway, Royal LePage or online at www.EventBrite.ca  Just use your QR Scanner app in your phone and click on the icon on the Poster…it will take you directly to the ticket site.
