Edmonton folk rockers tour Western Canada

Owls By Nature will take the stage at The Northern Friday night.

Edmonton folk rockers Owls By Nature play The Northern Friday night.

Owls By Nature are touring from Saskatchewan to B.C., and the band is making a stop along the way in Fernie. The Edmonton folk rock trio will be taking the stage at The Northern Friday night.

The Great Western Tour kicked off in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan on September 15, following the release of the band’s sophomore album, “Everything Is Hunted.” The whirlwind tour will take Owls By Nature through the western provinces with 12 shows, including Saskatoon, Lethbridge, and Victoria. The tour will wrap up in Hinton, Alberta on September 24.

Described as “whiskey-fuelled folk rock anthems for people who like to party,” Owls By Nature pride themselves on their energetic live shows, and innovative stance on rock and roll. The first single of their new album, “Heartbreaking Ways,” is said to be an electrifying song that can get stuck in your head for days.

Don’t miss Owls By Nature when they rock out at The Northern on Friday, September 21. Tickets are available in advance at The Northern, or at the door.
