The Wednesday Concert Series returns for sizzling summer of live music and good times in downtown Fernie!
Wednesday, August 8th: THE NORTHERN BEAUTIES
Wielding an unmistakable brand of Western Folk, Calgary Alberta’s Northern Beauties have now carved their name into the western Canadian musical landscape. The band was honoured with a pair of awards in 2016, a Western Canadian Music Award for best Roots Group/ Duo of the year and a YYC Music Calgary Award for Folk Recording of the year. With vocal harmonies as big as their ambitions, they capped off a remarkable year since releasing their debut EP in the spring of 2015.
The harmonies of vocalists Todd Stewart and Craig Aikman are a natural blend and the first year collaborating as the Northern Beauties was a duo vocal partnership that now underpins the bigger dimension of their music. In the fall of 2013 the duo recruited drummer / Erik Allen, bassist / Aaron Scholpp, Pedal Steel wizard / Charlie Hase and eventually in 2015 violinist / Jonathan Lewis. The new line up embodies what Stewart calls Western Folk - the distinct, bluegrass-infused contemporary folk sound of which the band is now considered to be a progenitor.
