House Concert with 100 mile house
August 30, 2017, 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$20
Supporting Education in Tierra Colorada, Guatemala
We are really excited to be hosting a house concert with 100 Mile House in August. The concert will support our education project in Tierra Colorada Guatemala.
100 Mile House is husband and wife duo Peter Stone (UK) and Denise MacKay (Alberta). A journey that started with a mistaken meeting at a show in Toronto 13 years ago has led the couple to share their unique brand of transatlantic folk at shows and festivals across this great continent. 100 mile house were winners of the Emerging Artist Award at the 2014 Edmonton Folk Music Festival, and their previous two albums, Wait With Me (2013) and Hollow Ponds (2011), have garnered three WCMA nominations, two Calgary Folk Festival Songwriting Grand prizes, two Edmonton Music Awards and have received airplay across the globe, from the BBC in the UK to Germany, Holland and France. It has also taken them to the stages of some of Canada’s biggest festivals including the Edmonton, Calgary, Canmore and Vancouver Folk Festivals. They recently won best Roots/Folk Album of the Year at the Edmonton Music Awards.
Help us to keep Guatemalan youth in school.
