Foothills Bluegrass Music Society presents
Happy Trails, Prospector live at The Irish Cultural Society in Bowness (6452 35 Ave NW, Calgary AB)! Join us Saturday, May 18, 2024, doors at 7:00PM, show at 7:30PM.

Happy Trails, Prospector is a musical marriage between five lovely Canadians, each of whom sings lead and harmony vocals, offering their audience a diverse (yet cohesive) sound with tons of energy. The five friends are: Patrick Hamilton on guitar, Sarah Hamilton on fiddle, Nathan Smith on fiddle, Miles Zurawell on banjo, and Nico Humby on bass.

This emerging team brings together decades of seasoned musical expertise. As individuals they have traveled across the country and internationally with celebrated bluegrass, Americana, and rock acts. As a unit, they have instructed at bluegrass camps such as Nimblefingers in BC and Northern Lights Bluegrass and Old-Tyme in Saskatchewan, and have performed at the Cowichan Bluegrass Festival and the Campbell Bay Music Festival.

Foothills Bluegrass Music Society presents John Wort Hannam live at Festival Hall in Inglewood (1215 10 Ave SE, Calgary AB)! Join us Friday, January 26, 2024, doors at 7:00PM, show at 7:30PM. This is our first ever show at Festival Hall and we hope you will enjoy this intimate and centrally located venue, also please note we have changed our ticketing service to showpass.com for 2024. In 2001, roots/folk musician John Wort Hannam quit his teaching job and spent 10 months depleting his savings while sat at his kitchen table, wearing a lucky hat, writing his first ten songs. Eighteen years later, with a few feathers in that lucky hat that include a JUNO nomination and a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Album of the Year, he’s got a new energy fuelled by a new band, a new sound, and a ton of new songs.
