PEI’s epic country music festival, Cavendish Beach Music Festival takes place from July 7-9, 2022. We teamed up with the event to conduct interviews with some of the Canadian talent leading up to the big day. First off, we are speaking with Nice Horse.
Nice Horse is a four-piece country-rock band from Alberta. The trio has had hits such as “High School”, “Good At Missing You”, and their latest, “Trampoline.”
You can catch Nice Horse on July 7 at 8:30 pm and 10:30 pm at the Kitchen Tides stage.
My name is Katie, I play the banjo/acoustic guitar and sing in Nice Horse. We are an all-female, self-contained country band based in Alberta and the only one of its kind in the country scene (that we know of, that is) in Canada.
We spent the last year writing up a storm and just finished recording new material in the studio. Hopefully, a new release will be out this fall!
This is our first time playing this festival and we are so looking forward to it. This will also be our first time playing in the Maritimes! This is particularly special for me because my grandmother is originally from PEI (Summerside, to be exact) and I have a bunch of relatives coming to the show from New Brunswick who has never seen Nice Horse perform…other than some kitchen parties at my cousin’s place a few years ago.
We are known for having a high-energy, rock n roll country show and we can’t WAIT to bring exactly that to Cavendish!
The other bands, all of the stages, the songwriter series…the whole thing!
We have a busy summer ahead and are SO happy to see a summer of festivals in full swing. It feels SO GOOD to have live music back. A full list of where to find us can be found on our website. See you out there!
