Leeroy Stagger
recorded at The Haven Social Club in Edmonton
Lethbridge, Alberta artist Leeroy Stagger writes what he feels. And after hearing his music, you soon understand he feels very deeply. For point of reference, his style, while not easy to pin down, could be categorized as folk-rock, alt-country, or Americana; think Steve Earle or classic Neil Young.  Earlier this year, Leeroy Stagger and his band headed out on the road for an extensive north American tour to promote his latest disc Little Victories. The show at the Haven Social Club in Edmonton in January was the start of that tour.

concert 1: Kathleen Edwards
recorded at CBC Studio 211, Toronto
Kathleen Edwards has been creating buzz since before the release of her debut album Failer a decade ago. About to release her fourth record, Voyageur, on the 17th of January, she plays an intimate, invitation-only show  in CBC Toronto’s Studio 211. This album has been driving the buzz train months in advance of its release as Edwards enlisted the help of Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon in its production. For this unique show she’s joined by Bahamas, Hannah Georgas, Jim Bryson, and Sarah Harmer as her special guests.
