October 15, 2017 – Connie Kaldor @The Cave

Connie Kaldor

NOTE: No Opener – Main Show starts at 8 p.m.

Sunday, October 15, 2017

A native of Regina, Saskatchewan, Connie Kaldor has been performing for most of her life. Born into a musical family, she grew up singing in the choir.

Her love of performing led her to a theatre degree from the University of Alberta, and then to alternative theatre companies such as the Mummers and Theatre Passe Muraille, an influence still very much in evidence at any Connie Kaldor concert. Although she left theatre to pursue her songwriting career quite early, her engaging character and storytelling skills are hallmarks of her live performances.

In 1981 Connie established an independent record label, now called Coyote Entertainment. She has recorded 14 albums. By the mid nineteen-eighties she was headlining folk festivals across Canada and the U.S.A.

Peter and the Wolves

Opener – TBA

Saturday, January 13, 2018

Deep in the wilds of Calgary, nestled along the river valley, lies the suburban outpost of Bowness. Following the Second World War, veterans moved in and carved out a rough ’n’ ready hepcat culture of their own— the hotel bar and beauty parlour, the pool hall and ice cream store, angle parking filled with four door sedans while rat rods roamed down the main drag on Saturday night gave it all the markings of a small town serenade lying just beyond the bright city lights. Generations later, community pride is sewn on the sleeves of its residents along with “I Love Bowness” bumper stickers slapped on the back of beat up Subarus and Honda Civics.
