Event Details

Tin is about 5’11″ I think, with a full Jesus beard and broader shoulders than the average man his size due to wrassling calves in his formative years. He plays accoustic and electric guitar, mandolin, lead and harmony vocal.

Toad is slightly taller but not nearly as intelligent or articulate. He is, however, an avid flyfisherman with intimate knowledge of the South Saskatchewan drainage basin. He plays accoustic guitar, lead and harmony vocal.

These two turds have been writing songs and playing music together since their high school years and have family histories going back generations on their Vulcan County farms. Taking early influence mainly from outlaw and alternative Country and Western songwriters like Townes, Steve Earle, Waylon Jennings, Neil Young, and Ian Tyson, it grew to include a new generation of closer to home greats like Corb Lund and John Wort Hannam. They began writing their own Southern Alberta into song, and put together a band of merry mates to help make the sound:

Ryan Shearer plays the drums, drives about 70 000 km annually, and prefers pike and walleye for the most part.  He is also, occasionally, Brad Brouwer- who is most definitely a rainbow trout proponent.

Peter Loughlin is the tallest man in the universe, a bass player, banjo player, anything the hell else player and reggae jibberish expert. He sings harmonies like Emmy Lou and has been known to do so for up to 11 consecutive hours.

Steve Loree is Steve Fucking Loree and he does what he’s going to do.

In all seriousness, we try to create music that tastes and smells like the lives of those living and working here on the foothills and plains of southern Alberta, with a slight bit of derangement. Authenticity is the point, but so is tequila and sausage on the barbeque.  Once in a while, we gather ourselves and venture to the big ol’ city to share the tunes with the fine folks that frequent the good watering holes.

Mike Clark’s Saturday Afternoon Jam Session

Saturday afternoons from 3pm to 7pm

Mike Clark walked on stage more than two decades ago to begin his tenure as a blues, roots and jazz saxophonist. While studying for a Bachelor’s degree in music at the University of British Columbia his artistry evolved and matured in the nightclubs of Vancouver and the lower mainland districts. Upon receiving his degree, he accepted a high school teaching position and continued performing in clubs and concert settings throughout the province.

In 1989 Mike’s career as a professional musician took centre stage when he moved to Calgary. Within weeks of his arrival he was hired to perform with the legendary Clarence “Big” Miller. Mike’s huge tone, authentic approach and expressive solos was the calling card he used to introduce himself to the hierarchy of performers in the city and expeditiously established himself as the number one call saxophonist on the blues and roots scene.

Mike truly is one of Canada’s premiere blues and roots artists and has been nominated for a Maple Blues Award in the category of “Horn Player of the Year” for three consecutive years. He has performed with Albert Collins, Son Seals, Amos Garrett, The Downchild Bluesband, and Dutch Mason to name a few. He’s recorded with Johnny V (If My Daddy Could See Me Now), Donald Ray Johnson (Pure Pleasure), Tim Williams (Live at Kaos), Ray Montana (Hip October), Steve Pineo (Steve Pineo with Horns) and can be heard on many other sessions.

Event Details

Road ghosts, fallen shows and the blur of years built by song, sweat and stage noise. Americana-edged rock and roll tangled with the continuous trail of broken strings, headlights and a hell of a lot of laughter. You’re looking at the guiding force behind Dave McCann and his fourth release “Dixiebluebird.”

Produced by guitarist, producer and Nashville alt-icon Will Kimbrough (Emmylou Harris, Todd Snider, Mavis Staples, Rodney Crowell), “Dixiebluebird” is Dave’s strongest work to date. A wealth of road and heart worn original material that lays a torch to the influence of Bruised Country Soul, Heartfelt Americana and Southern Tinged Rock and Roll. “Dixiebluebird” also brings transition, with an introduction to Dave McCann and the Firehearts. It’s a new name, but the same superlative line up: long time guitarist Dave Bauer, multi-instrumentalist Pete Loughlin on Bass, Tim Williams on Drums and all the sagacious force of Charlie Hase on the Pedal Steel Guitar.

“Dixiebluebird” was recorded at the Toybox Studio-a backyard studio hidden out in the old neighborhoods of East Nashville. Owned and operated by Eli “Lij” Shaw and aptly named after it’s incredible collection of historic and vintage gear. Beautiful compressors, incredible mics, and the analog MCI console that was rescued out of Florida’s Criteria Studios after the Seventies. It’s recorded the luminaries, Neil Young, Steven Stills, Elvin Bishop, Eric Clapton, Joe Walsh, the Marshall Tucker Band, the Eagles, the list goes on and you can sense that historic heartfelt rock influence.

From the title track “Dixiebluebird” to the high-caliber rockers like “Bloodpines” and “Fireheart” or following through to the pendulant swerve of “Tuscaloosa Blues” and “Unfamiliar Ground” you can hear right off what this band is all about…Heart. From the spine chilling and crunch-tangled crackle of the guitars to the uncommonly high standards of song craft, “Dixiebluebird” is full speed. With it’s consistent and matchless musicianship this recording finds itself the benchmark.

Previous releases “Shoot The Horse” (2008), “Country Medicine” (2004) and “Woodland Tea” (2000) garnered Dave international acclaim with fans and critics alike and found him sharing the stage with both legendary performers and the overlooked heros of the musical world. Songs from “Country Medicine” and “Woodland Tea” were also included in the award-winning sound track to the film “Hank Williams First Nation”, as well as the TV series. The film sound track included songs from Joe Ely, Billy Joe Shaver, Hank Williams and others. It ended up taking home “Best music in a motion picture” at the Nashville Film Festival in 2005.
