Last month my family attended the Canmore Folk Festival. This is part 2 of a showcase concert put on by U22 productions on July 29 at The Communitea Cafe in Canmore. U22 is a non profit organization dedicated to nurturing and developing the talents of Albertan performers under the age of 22.
Performers featured this episode:
The Doll Sisters are a sister duo who write and perform haunting old-country inspired songs with tight harmonies accompanied by guitar, fiddle and mandolin.
Braden Gates is a champion fiddle player, but he is also an adept fingerstyle guitar player and accomplished storyteller/songwriter.
Samantha and Emily Schultz are sisters from Edmonton with rich voices, and a knack for writing catchy, folk flavoured pop songs.
Scenic Route to Alaska are a folk-blues-rock trio from Edmonton.
