We are pleased to partner with the Calgary International Blues Festival in presenting Eddy Nights featuring special guest, Tim Williams, the 2014 winner of the International Blues Challenge. John Rutherford, a staple on the original scene hosts a series of talk-show style discussions with special guests, feature interviews, musical performances and artifacts that will tell the stories of who played at the Eddy, what happened and why the Eddy was so influential. Join the audience in recounting the good old days while helping write the script for the future of the Eddy as part of the new NMC building.
Calgary’s colourful history has been the inspiration for many songs, some of which became hits while others have faded into the past. Join musical storyteller and historian Bob Pearson to hear the tunes and the enthralling stories behind them.
