Dynamic musicians WiL take your breath away

Dynamic musicians WiL are coming tot the Arts Station on October 12 as part of the concert series.

Known for his lively performances to convey stories and song, composer Wil Mimnaugh is one musician not to miss. WiL is performing at the Arts Station in Fernie as part of the concert series on Saturday, October 12. WiL is no stranger to Fernie as the band played at the Arts Station last year to a packed theatre.

“If you’re expecting a quiet show, that’s not us,” said WiL. “Our performances are pretty dynamic, ranging from soft, sweet and quiet to aggressive powerful moments. We don’t do two shows the same and we put everything into it.”

Mimnaugh performs with a drummer and plays the acoustic guitar but there is little sitting down.

“I’m a singer songwriter playing passionate folk rock but I don’t restrict myself to a specific genre. I think that’s why we have toured with a variety of bands in a range of different genres.”

WiL is performing at the BreakOut West music festival in Calgary at the Ironwood Stage on October 4 and 5 alongside dozens of musicians at various venues throughout the city, including Fernie’s Shred Kelly. Their first live-recorded album, WiL-Live at the Ironwood was released on October 8 and was recorded a year ago on the Ironwood Stage.

With his songs accompanying Travel Alberta’s scenic ‘Remember to breathe’ ads, WiL’s music is bound to take your mind on a melodic journey and may just take your breath away.

The Fernie concert series features a minimum of eight concerts running from September through March.  It is a fantastic opportunity to see amazing musicians in an intimate theatre setting. The concert series features a wide range of musical styles striving to bring the music to Fernie that is sure to make all of your family members happy.

Tickets are available at Freshies, Carosella, the Arts Station and online. $15 for members and $20 for non-members.
