Canadian troubadour John Spearn will perform with singer/songwriters Tom Lindl and Red Deer’s Kayla McKinney at The Matchbox on June 27.
Spearn, who lives in the tiny hamlet of Dapp, north of Edmonton, is best known for recording Canadian history in song. The multiple-award nominee, who has three albums under his belt, sings about forgotten heroes, the humility and hilarity in our international image, and of other stories above the 49th parallel.
Lindl, who has lived in many Alberta centres, including Red Deer and Innisfail, writes alternative folk songs infused with humour. He’s played in many bands, and was the first person to play live music at The Vat, and to host jams there.
McKinney is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter, who’s graced the Matchbox stage many times with the Triple H Rock Band. This will be her debut as a solo performer singing her own compositions.
Tickets for the 8 p.m. concert are $20 from The Matchbox at Taylor Drive and 43rd Street.
