CFMA Nominee Showcase - 8:00 pm
1101 – 2nd Street NW
Calgary, AB
Canada
Price: $25

The mission of the Canadian Folk Music Awards is to celebrate and promote Canadian folk music in all its forms. Until their creation in 2005, there existed no awards to celebrate the breadth and depth of folk music in Canada. Awards such as the Junos, East Coast Music Awards or the Western Canada Music Awards have a few categories that apply to folk and roots music but they offer only a restricted view of the genre. The judging process is similar to that of the two-stage elimination model used by the Junos via a randomly selected jury drawn from our community.

The Nick is a sponsor for the Best Contemporary Album CFMA. The CFMA Awards Gala and Concert and catered reception will take place at the University Theatre on Sunday, November 10 and will be hosted by CBC’s Shelagh Rogers and Benoit Bourque of La Bottine Souriante. Gala performers are Amelia Curran, Lorne Elliott, The Fretless, James Keelaghan and Oscar Lopez, Oh My Darling and Christina Smith and Jean Hewson. Tickets for this event are now on sale at <http://www. ucalgary.ca/tickets>.

The Nick will present showcases by the following six 2013 CFMA nominees, the night before the Gala award presentations. Our evening format will feature three sets of music as usual, with two nominees sharing the stage in each set.

Dawn and Marra (nominated for Vocal Group of the Year)

Maria Dunn (nominated for Solo Artist of the Year)

Stephen Fearing (nominated for Contemporary Singer and Solo Artist of the Year)

Rebecca Lappa (nominated for Young Performer of the Year)

Jorge Miguel (nominated for Instrumental Solo Artist and World Solo Artist of the Year)

Vanessa Cardui is the singer, guitarist and primary songwriter for Heroincredible, but also has a wealth of solo material in which her edgy rock voice is tempered with restraint and takes on a mature, folkloric quality. Linda Faye Miller is a classical soprano who performed as a soloist for years, all the while building up a body of exceptional compositions that employ her superbly clear and strong operatic voice in the expression of rich emotions. Sora is a Celtic and folk singer-songwriter and violinist with a gift for melody and a flair for storytelling. These three remarkable women have come together for a rare collaborative concert that celebrates mythology, nature and the stages of life.
