Our In the Neighbourhood Concert Series is gaining strength in the city with a fresh concert from Matt Blais this Friday 7:00pm at the Joseph Welsh School. Matt is currently the Calgary Public Library's Songwriter in Residence, but he originates from Central Alberta, we promise!
In the six years Blais spent between albums, he’s collaborated with Sam Roberts, played nearly a thousand shows, including opening slots for Monster Truck, The Strumbellas, The Trews, and Blue Rodeo, trod some of Alberta’s biggest festival stages—Calgary Stampede’s Coca-Cola Stage, Big Valley Jamboree, and more. With awards such as "Male Artist of the Year" at the Calgary Music Awards (2018) and "Best Rock Song" at The Great American Song Contest (2016), he has solidified his reputation as a musical force both on and off the stage.
This event is being organized with Access 4 Disability, a local advocacy organization, and every effort has been made to ensure the event is accessible for all.
Please bring a lawn chair if you're able.
