Bear Creek Folk Music Festival Song Contest goes ahead with health advisory details
Song Contest update:
Friday’s Song Contest Finals are still a go, but to follow provincial health recommendations and to decrease crowd density, we have limited the sale of the remaining tickets to tomorrow’s song contest by 90 (to stay under the 250-person recommended limit)
While we are fortunate to operate in a lower-risk area, we ask everyone to practice recommended preventative care. More info can be found here: https://www.alberta.ca/coronavirus-info-for-albertans.aspx. Bear Creek Folk Music Festival and GPLT are also taking additional health-related actions at the event to help minimize risk to attendees and musicians.
We’re excited to see all of this amazing talent on stage and look forward to a wonderful evening. Stay healthy everybody!
Refunds for the ticket price will be issued for anyone who decides not to attend this concert. Contact the GPLT Box Office.
Ryan McNally and the Messarounders Feb 16
Sunday, February 16, 2020 @ 7:30 pm at the Grande Prairie Live Theatre
Tickets at gplt.ca or call 780 538 1616
Whether he’s playing with his own solo band or other various outfits, he can’t be kept off Canadian stages. Ryan puts most of his energy in his passion for studying acoustic traditional blues, jazz and old time music. This led him to spending a winter in New Orleans where he wrote the majority of the material featured on Steppin’ Down South. This album is saturated with the sounds and rhythm of New Orleans streets.
Steppin’ Down South captures the sound of hillbilly blues and jug band jazz. Recorded live off the floor by Bob Hamilton at Old Crow Studios in Whitehorse, Yukon. With Patrick Hamiltonon banjo, kick drum and vocals. Kieran Poile on fiddle, Justin Rubenstein doubling on trombone and trumpet and Christian Leclerc on tuba. Ryan McNally’s genuine style and performance is a breath of fresh air.
