    Fearless and meticulous. Fragile and melancholy. Forthright and mighty. F&M (Edmonton's Ryan and Rebecca Anderson) is a baroque-pop outfit with a penchant for dark lyrics and mesmerizing melodies. For more than 10 years, the couple have been indispensable stalwarts — releasing six of their own albums and touring through Canada and Europe. F&M’s forlorn cover of “Maybe Tomorrow” from TV’s The Littlest Hobo was featured in the modern hockey classic, GOON. All of the band's full length albums have appeared on the Earshot charts — including 2010’s "Sincerely, F&M" (Shameless Records), which was N0.1 on the national folk charts for six weeks. 2014’s "At Sunset We Sing,"was shortlisted for the Edmonton Music Prize and earned a Best Alternative Album nomination at the Edmonton Music Awards. In 2018, F&M was featured at a sold out concert at The National Music Centre; recorded live for CBC Radio. Their latest release, "Lessons From Losers" won best Adult Alternative Recording at the 2019 Edmonton Music Awards.

    Mike Angus was a lead singer/writer in the Wheat Pool band then was a solo artist for years when he retired and now runs one of the nicest wine bars in Edmonton. That said, Mike has come out of retirement recently and is ready to share his songs from Hymns.

  • Music in the Forest - Brad Lynch Band Trio

    Thursday, January 16, 2020

    Continuing the 'Music in the Forest' performing artists series into the winter, Brad Lynch Band Trio will be performing in the new Community Facility on Long Island in Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park. 

    Doors 6:30PM, Music Starts 7:30PM, Ends 9:30PM

    Beyond the reach of the Saddle Hills across the raging waters of the Mighty Peace River is where this expedition begins. Like the morning sun, the beginnings of BLB rose up from the East to settle along the western Plain as many have before. It was there in the heart of the Alberta Peace Country that the BLB embarked on their maiden voyage in 2018. Equipped with their instruments of choice and an unbridled yearning to explore both the world around them and the music within each of them. Telling stories of their travels, broken strings, and broken hearts the BLB encompass a sound spanning genres and generations. While performing with other groups singer-
    songwriter, Brad Lynch (vocals, guitar, harmonica) and multi-instrumentalist Matt O'Connor (mandolin, fiddle, banjo) crossed paths. It was that chance encounter that gave birth to a brotherhood and a new sound for both artists. With the later addition of Kyle Doucette (lead guitar and banjo), well travelled drummer Dano Laflamme (drums and vocals), and Logan Kennedy (guitar, steel, dobro, keys, vocals) whom Lynch co-wrote and performed with for 4yrs prior. Whether you're looking for a boot stomping soiree or a heart wrenching story of love, loss and triumph. Brad Lynch Band has all the elements of a group destined to end up on your must-see list.

    The trio performing will be Brad Lynch, Matt O'Connor, & Kyle Doucette
