Banff National Parks's Performance in the Park multiplies the music with a two day gig!
Canadian folk-country crooner Corb Lund has jumped on board as one of the headliners at this annual outdoor concert that takes place in the most breathtaking venue out there. This year’s event also features Canadian artists Elliott BROOD, Sarah Harmer, Whitehorse and Jeremy Fisher.
With an impressive string of music awards and nominations, including 2013’s Roots Artist of the Year, Corb Lund is the first Alberta-born artist to perform at Banff’s big outdoor concert and relishes the opportunity to sing for a hometown crowd in the Rocky Mountains.
Burlington, Ontario native and Juno Award nominated artist Sarah Harmer will charm crowds with hits from her Platinum album You Were Here and her latest celebrated album Oh Little Fire. Harmer is also well-known as a champion of environmental protection and contributed to the soundtrack for the National Parks Project in 2011 as part of Parks Canada’s centennial celebrations.
Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucett tied the musical knot as Whitehorse, marrying their talent and chemistry as a smoldering duo. Their first full-length album, “The Fate of the World Depends on the Kiss” was shortlisted for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize.
Toronto-based alternative-country band Elliott BROOD, a trio of talented songwriters who burst onto the scene in 2004, will grace the stage to perform hits from their latest respective albums Cabin Fever and Days Into Years. Their hit "Oh Alberta!" is sure to get toes tapping in the Rockies this June.
Two-time Juno Award nominee Jeremy Fisher will be performing new material and favourites from recent recordings like Mint Julueps.
Harmer and Whitehorse will perform on Friday, June 20 at 6:30pm and Lund, Fisher and Elliot BROOD will take the stage on Saturday, June 21 at 3:00pm with tickets being sold separately for each day or combined for concert-goers wishing to attend both days.
