Last month my family attended the Canmore Folk Festival. While we were there I spent alot of time with my friend Rhea March who founded U22 productions. U22 is a non profit organization dedicated to nurturing and developing the talents of Albertan performers under the age of 22. On Friday July 29, The Communitea Cafe in Canmore hosted a showcase concert featuring several young performers. I recorded that concert and will feature the concert recordings in the next 2 podcast episodes.
Performers featured this episode:
Layton Kramer- 16 year old songwriter from Canmore Alberta
Dean Kheroufi is a 16 year old wizard with a 6 string bass and a looping pedal.
The Command Sisters are 13 and 16 year old sisters who have recently landed a development deal in Nashville. With their catchy melodies and tight harmonies they are an act to watch out for.
Michah Turchet is a 16 year old “country boy” from small town Alberta who has undertaken to master flamenco guitar and he’s well on his way.
Next episode will feature the conclusion of the U22 showcase with performances by The Doll Sisters, Braden Gates, Samantha and Emily Schultz and Scenic Route to Alaska.
