Juno Award nominated artist, Carolyn Mark will be visiting Fernie after spending most of the last year working on her new album.

Carolyn Mark, from Vancouver Island, will be with Luther Wright and Jack Grace at The Arts Station on May 17.

Jack Grace is a dashing charmer from New York City with at least two handfuls of witty and well-crafted songs under his hat. His old band, Steak, was the toast of Colorado’s college circuit. He’s up for the part of Johnny Cash in an upcoming Broadway show, and his song Big Bear was included on the soundtrack of the movie Super Troopers.

Luther Wright has featured in films such as ‘I Made a Bluegrass Tribute to Pink Floyd The Wall and Survived!’ or from his beautiful solo album ‘Man of Your Dreams.’

Luther’s song ‘The Land of Milk and Honey’ is a duet with Sarah Harmer and will feature in an upcoming episode of CBC’s Heartland.

Terri Upton (The Gruff, Beekeeper, Aunts and Uncles) will ride shotgun, sing beautiful harmonies and play the standing bass.

Catch them on Thursday, May 17 at the The Arts Station in Fernie.
