Amelia Curran a Steady and Sure Talent

It wouldn’t take much for an artist to be envious of Amelia Curran’s work to date, though that hasn’t stopped her from moving forward. The St. John’s, NL artist has released seven albums in the past 14 years, a steady and stellar output for the musician.

She’s been recognized for her work, too. Six Shooter Records, home to some of the best roots acts Canada has to offer, picked her up. Since then, she’s even won a JUNO Award. It’s no surprise people have been responding to her music –– her minimalist folk sound and carefully worded lyrics should be immediately resonant with anyone who cares to listen.

Her newest record, They Promised Mercy, came out in 2014 and was a bit of a departure for Curran. According to Exclaim!, the record “dishes up a louder but still palatable rock sound that maintains her seasoned lyrical integrity.”

Amelia Curran is in the Exchange on Friday, March 28 with Ryan Boldt. Doors at 8 p.m. Show at 8:30 p.m. Advance tickets are $20 plus s/c and are available online at TicketBreak. $25 at the door. All ages and licensed.

Ceilidh Friends’ Music Touches on Tradition and More

By now, Regina music fans should be well acquainted with the notion of a ceilidh. For years now, the Mid-Winter Ceilidh has been a busy February event in Regina, a celebration of Celtic music full of all kinds of merriment.

The mixture of folk music and socializing is at the heart of Ceilidh Friends, as well. The four original members –– Moira Cameron, Steve Lacey, Dawn Lacey, and Steve Goff –– met in the musical community of Yellowknife, they connected over a shared love of traditional folk music, featuring autoharp, banjos, mandolins, and more.

Since then, Goff has passed, but the group has continued. Their most recent album is Northern Remembrance, released in 2014.

Ceilidh Friends are in the Club on Thursday, March 26. Show at 8 p.m. $15 at the door. All ages and licensed.

The Real March Madness Is the Metal Meltdown

Everyone’s still wrapped up in college basketball’s March Madness, but there’s another variety coming up quickly.

Called March Metal or Metal Madness at various points, the Metal Meltdown has been happening every March in the Exchange for the past four years, and this might be the biggest year yet. This showcase moment for heavy music in Regina and Saskatchewan takes over both the Exchange and the Club for a single night on Saturday, March 28.

Bands like Kelevra, Deadrot, Trenchfoot, FPG, Tomorrow Starts Today, and the Ben Winoski Project are all playing, but that’s not all. Regina metal mainstays Bloodline are headlining the night and releasing their new album, Prisoner of Life. The group of local music veterans bring experience and dedication to their music, and are ready to close out a big night for heavy music in our two rooms.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Show at 8 p.m. Advance tickets are $15 plus s/c and are available from Vintage Vinyl and the Tiki Room. All ages and licensed. For more information, go to the Facebook event.

presenters network

The Presenters Network Is for Presenters and More

It’s right there in the name: “the Presenters Network”. Who are presenters? They’re the groups and individuals who help facilitate so much of the art that happens in our communities. They’re the concert promoter booking the next concert, the dance organization putting together the next performance, the visual art collective coordinating the next show.

The Presenters Network is a database launched by the Cultural Exchange. We’re hoping to connect Saskatchewan presenters, venues, and artists to help everyone find new opportunities and fill out province with art. For presenters, this could mean finding that one artist you have to work with, or the perfect venue for what you do, or another presenter who you could partner with in the future.

Signing up for a profile is quick, easy, and free. Visit the Presenters Network on our website to sign up or to browse the existing profiles.

lazys

The Lazys Have Plenty of Canadian Connections

The Lazys have a built up a name for themselves in their home country, spreading their high-energy rock across Australia since starting back in 2007. But for a group who live so physically far from us folks here Canada, they sure have plenty of roots in the Great White North.

What kind of roots? Well, Bumstead, the same label behind the Trews and Poor Young Things, is put out their self-titled debut album in our nation last year. Members of the Trews also helped write a track on the record, while Ian D’Sa of Billy Talent helped out on the single, “Shake It Like You Mean It”. And the whole thing was produced by Gus Van Go and Werner F., the same team who helped make Regina band Rah Rah’s last album, The Poet’s Dead, so great.

Even without all those connections to Canada, audiences around here would find plenty to love in this band. They’re the right good-time rock and roll band for any job, especially opening for Canadian legends Danko Jones.

The Lazys are opening for Danko Jones in the Exchange on Friday, April 10. Doors at 8 p.m. Advance tickets are $25 plus service charges and are available at Vintage Vinyl and online at TicketEdge. $30 at the door. All ages and licensed.

Recently Announced: Great Lake Swimmers

We’re very happy to tell you that the Regina Folk Festival Concert Series is presenting Great Lake Swimmers in the Exchange on Tuesday, May 26 with the Weather Station. Tickets are on sale right now online over at TicketBreak.

Great Lake Swimmers’ latest, A Forest of Arms, is coming out in April 2015 and, from what’s been released so far, continues the great progression they’ve made over the course of six albums. The Tony Dekker-led band keeps with a folk tradition both beautiful and rocking, mixing themes both personal and pulled from the natural world.

The inclusion of the Weather Station, Tamara Lindeman’s wonderful project, ensures this’ll be a great night.

While you’re thinking about the Regina Folk Festival, why not have a look at their 2015 lineup? On August 7, 8, and 9, they’ll be bringing incredible artists like Sinead O’Connor, Vance Joy, Blue Rodeo, the Sheepdogs, and Jenny Lewis to Victoria Park.
