$10 Student tickets available in advance for this show, with valid student card.
Singer-songwriter Kayla Luky lives in Grandview, Manitoba, a small farming community nestled between the Riding and Duck Mountains. This unique setting gives her country sound absolute authenticity.
After much positive response to Kayla Luky’s last albums The Time It Takes (2011) and Kayla & Ben (2013) she decided to further cultivate her music by working with award winning producer Murray Pulver (Doc Walker, Steve Bell, Bros Landreth.) The end result is Back To Dirt (2017) featuring twelve new tracks soaked in alcohol, dirt and sorrow, honouring the roots of real country music.
Zachary Lucky is unapologetically old-school country, armed with a husky, baritone voice. He carries himself like a younger Richard Buckner or a heartier Doug Paisley and receives comparisons to songwriters such as Gordon Lightfoot and Kris Kristofferson. He sings of Canadian places and people as knowingly as he might Townes Van Zandt or the Rio Grande. It's a relatable show on many levels, and conjures universal feelings that have passed through our collective timelines. Already hailed as a master storyteller by outlets ranging from No Depression to The Globe and Mail, Lucky’s “Everywhere A Man Can Be” is his most powerful statement to date.
