On July 11, 2017 the Calgary Stampede welcomed three amazing Canadian country artists to the Nashville North stage.
The Dead South hail from Regina Saskatchewan. The band blends elements of folk, bluegrass and classic rock which definitely got the crowd roaring last night. What is unique about this band is that they use four basic-acoustic instruments; guitar, mandolin, banjo and cello to bring the diverse style out.
Jess Moskaluke is a staple name in Canada. Bringing her country pop music since releasing her debut album Light Up The Night (2014). With her charismatic smile, and engagement with the audience she has brought the positive Country energy back from its roots.
Doc Walker is one of the most recognized Canadian country acts around. With numerous releases spanning their discography including; Good Day to Ride (1997) till the most recent Weathervane (2017). This duo was a force to be reckoned with. Their contagious energy had the crowd dancing all night.

I’m Phil and 27 years old. I’ve been involved with music as long as I can remember. I’ve worked as a backstage hand, stage crew, street-teamer with Union Events and various labels, been in and out of bands and started my own magazine; Attainable Magazine. In which I focus on band interviews and had the opportunity to sit down with names such as William Control, Real Mackenzies and I Prevail. As well photograph others such as August Burns Red, Silverstein, and Protest the Hero. Though I tend to gravitate towards the heavier styles; punk, metal, hardcore, and so forth. I do end up at any other show I can get too. I originally had gone to university to pursue broadcasting with a minor in photo-journalism but after a year left to continue to purse music on my own terms. If I’m not at a show, I’m either at a record store adding to my ever growing collection. In my free time I also model and practice body-suspension. You can always feel free to contact me on my other social medias.
