Former Red Deer musician to perform Saturday at Velvet Olive

Trevor Howlett will perform some rock/folk tunes to usher in St. Patty’s Day

Saturday’s concert at the Velvet Olive will be something of a homecoming for travelling singer/songwriter Trevor Howlett.

Although he’s now an Edmonton resident, the East Coast native used to live in Red Deer, so he hopes to see familiar faces at his show, which starts at 9 p.m.

Howlett is happy to be doing his first gig in the city since 2016. He says he plans to play some Irish songs to usher in St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday, and will otherwise perform sets of alternative rock, folk and pop covers and originals.

Howlett draws inspiration from everyone from Dinosaur Jr, to Nirvana, Neil Young, Stan Rogers and The Decemberists.

There’s no cover charge.
