"Just because you are jaded and ironic doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the holiday season! We’ve gathered a dozen local musicians to carol and cajole you into a festive mood.
Join Clinton St John, Bob Keelaghan, Dan Vacon, Lorrie Matheson, Woodpigeon, Savk, Jay Crocker, The Doer and the Doddler, Aaron Booth, Samantha Savage-Smith, Reuben Bullock and the Xmas house band featuring Ryan Bourne, Colin Mitchell, Steve Fletcher and Eric H…amelin for holiday songs both classic and spastic.
Hipster moms and dads: Here’s a kid-friendly seasonal celebration you won’t roll your eyes over. There will be Santa, ornaments for kids to make courtesy of Local Library, cocoa and an early sing-along for the little ones.
Also: cider and mulled wine, the world’s smallest record fair, a late sing-along for grownups, and a silent auction featuring fully trimmed xmas trees and gingerbread houses made by local artists.
Tickets $25 for adults, $5 for kids, available at Sloth Records and through the Calgary Folk Music Festival office by phone at 403-233-0904 or online at calgaryfolkfest.com"
