Music For the Wild: Rob Heath with guests Christie Simmons & Brian Volke

November 6, 2011 - 1:30am

Folk and Roots Music—for the whole family!

This third year for AWA's Music for the Wild series features a range of local musicians performing in support of Alberta's wild spaces.

A storyteller in the tradition of Harry Chapin, John Prine and Steve Earle, Rob Heath's original songs are a tasteful mix of contemporary folk, alt-country and pop. His one-man one guitar style is diverse melodically and rhythmically but always interesting. We all have things we wish we could say. Rob decided to say them with rich melodies and lyrics delivered in a voice haunting in its simplicity.

Opening act: Christie Simmons is a Calgary-based singer/songwriter whose original music is authentic, elegant, acoustic folk – prairie Canadiana that’s woven with strains of Celtic, brushes of bluegrass and old-time Western sensibility. She is joined by Brian Volke, one of the finest, highest-energy flatpick guitar maniacs ever to play on six strings.
