O’mally, who’s billed as “a fresh face in Canada’s folk music scene,” plays this week in Red Deer.

The Gulf Islands singer known as O’mally is actually Meg Iredale-Grey, who strums the clawhammer banjo and tells story-songs with sweet, melancholy lyrics.

She’s played with Fish & Bird and other folk acts and is now striking out solo with her debut album of original jazzy, Celtic roots music, called Speck.

This spring, O’mally is touring from Victoria to Montreal, and will stop to perform at The Velvet Olive in Red Deer on Saturday night. For more information, call 403-340-8288.
