Laura Hayes & Ed Brown Thursday September 14th, 7:30PM


Laura Hayes  http://www.laurahayes.ca

Laura landed in the right family...lots of music, lots of talent and lots of support. Laura has been singing her whole life and played a couple of instruments over the years. But it was the guitar that helped Laura find her song writing voice. Laura listened to a range of musical styles, and took the advice of her voice coach (Grandpa Hayes), who gave Laura two singing lessons; “Sit tall in the saddle” and “Don’t sing through your nose”. Laura began writing and tapped into a well-spring of passion for music that shows no sign of trickling off. Laura is a busy mother of three and spends every moment she can writing songs and singing. Laura performs live at community functions, festivals and wherever she has the chance. Laura’s first CD “Road to Nowhere" is a collection of originals...full of story songs and earthy vocals. “Storyteller”, Laura's second album is a rootsy production of 10 original tunes and a cover of a traditional folk song. Roots, Folk, and Wow, What a Voice!

“ A funny, unique, truly memorable folk-country duo”. That’s what the Permanent Rain Press had to say about Chicken-Like Birds after listening to their new EP “Moving On” that was released in March, 2017. The two have been making great strides with their original swing, country blues and ragtime tunes that are applicable to the 20th century but are very much influenced by the music of the 1920’s and 1930’s. Appearing at festivals across Western Canada last year, 2017 finds the duo on their first cross Canada tour, going all the way to St. John’s Newfoundland. 

Chicken-Like Birds are the combination of Ari Lantela who is known for his refined-yet-sloppy blues guitar picking and Jasmin Frederickson holding it down on double bass.  Along with a suitcase drum, upright bass and interesting harmonies, listeners will be treated to a tasty marriage of roots, blues, swing and ragtime that the Canadian Pacific Blues Society has called a “fantastic old- school acoustic experience.”  Together they sing their original songs about adventure, independent women, cooking and the pair's strange relationship.  Slap in some theatrics, a few funny stories and some strangely endearing awkwardness and that'll be the Birds.

BELLE PLAINE

Belle Plaine is a singer, a songwriter and an inventive musician who was raised on the Canadian prairies near the hamlet of Fosston, Saskatchewan – population: 54. The ingenuity, lonesome yearning and collaborative work ethic of country life have infiltrated her song writing, her sound and her methods. Belle’s reverence for artists who defy categorization has led her to create a brand of roots music that combines vintage blues and swing tones of the 1940s with classic country styles made popular in the heyday of the Grand Ole Opry. Belle’s greatest strength is an unfailing ability to weave stories, genres and emotions with her formidable voice.

Belle’s chameleon abilities have become a catalyst for an impressive array of collaborations. In 2015 she appeared as a guest vocalist on Colter Wall’s breakthrough debut album, Imaginary Appalachia. In 2016 she performed her work with the Regina Symphony Orchestra. In 2017 her co-writing and harmony-singing chops will be featured on Blake Berglund’s upcoming album, Realms. Throughout all of her projects, Belle also works closely with Saskatchewan artists in other fields, including visual arts and dance.

BLAKE BERGLUND

There are realities. And there are “Realms.” “Realms” takes us on an allegorical journey that captures the breadth of human experience. Based on Berglund’s own life-altering experience in December 2015, “Realms’” independent, hard-working, take-no-shit “Pretty Good Guy” seeks answers and soon finds himself slipping, quitting, succumbing to despair, apathy and numbness. The pain is gripping. And it’s winning. Only when the hero opens the door, steps through and releases control that he connects with God and the cosmic centre, finally understanding the power of God and the power of himself. His message is love. His mission, complex. The hero’s journey is now complete. Berglund’s fifth full-length album “Realms” is set to be released on Friday, Sept 1, 2017 through his independently-owned and operated Oceanman Records. Inspired by the teachings and observations of Thomas P. Fusco, Dr. Rick Strassman, and authors Joseph Campbell and C.S. Lewis, the 10-track album explores spiritual themes, alternative beliefs and universal truths hidden in patterns, nuances and puzzles. Berglund’s long time hot-shot honky tonk band, The Vultures, are showcased from the get-go and joined by a handful of vocal appearances including Chris Henderson, Megan Nash, Jason Plumb and Belle Plaine. The release will be accompanied by a North American tour.
