CKUA presents a live performance by Calgary indie-pop masters Woodpigeon Friday, December 3 as part of TransCanada’s Alberta Backstage Series.
Founded in 2005 by Mark Hamilton, Woodpigeon combines the musical talents of a rotating collective with guitars, drums, mellotrons, singing children, harpsichords, bells, whistles, handclaps and girlish vocals to create sounds that float somewhere between chamber pop and alt-country.
To date, Woodpigeon has recorded three full-length albums, four EP’s and a rock opera about pirates, and has performed at NXNE, SXSW, End of the Road and Sled Island (which Hamilton also curated), earning listener and critical acclaim world-wide.
TransCanada’s Alberta Backstage Series, featuring music and interviews with Alberta’s finest musicians, airs 8 pm to 9 pm every Friday evening. On the first Friday of each month, Alberta Backstage presents a free concert, featuring an Alberta musician or group, which broadcasts live on CKUA; these concerts take place throughout the province.
This series is made possible by support from TransCanada.
