Mike Plume: Stories From A Lonesome Stretch Of Highway

On his new album Lonesome Stretch Of Highway, Mike Plume is reborn. Its nine tracks bear the Edmonton singer/songwriter’s distinctive mark, but with an added crackling energy that’s a byproduct of hard-won experience.

 

Having first arrived on the scene in the midst of the alt-country insurgency of the early 1990s, Plume and his loyal band have logged countless miles around the globe, touring with the likes of Steve Earle, The Mavericks, John Hiatt and others, while befriending legends such as Levon Helm and Stompin’ Tom Connors. The lessons he’s learned along the way have left an indelible mark on Lonesome Stretch Of Highway, with songs such as “Younger Than We Are Today,” “It’s A Long Way” (featuring The Road Hammers), and “Perfume And Gasoline” destined to take a place among his best-loved tunes.

 

Plume has long been known for his richly detailed storytelling style and unyielding devotion to rock and roll’s original spirit. That’s all present on Lonesome Stretch Of Highway, powered by Plume’s earthy, uncompromising voice. That combination is proof that one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters remains at the top of his game and is ready to hit that highway again...

JJ Voss: "Come Along With Me" Tour

After eight months of playing only online, live

streaming solo shows, JJ will be reuniting with his ‘Damn Good Band’ for several Saskatchewan tour dates in November.

 

With close to two decades of dedication to his music career and craft, JJ Voss has taken his passion for songwriting and performing, along with his many experiences in life, to build an authentic, heartfelt solo career rooted in the soil of the working class.

Raised on a small farm in southern Saskatchewan, Voss began his music journey at the age of 8 when he picked up his Dad’s old flat top and has been following in the footsteps of legendary troubadours like Steve Earle, Charlie Major, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen ever since.

 

In 2017 Voss was forced to take a hiatus from his career for one year to recover from major back surgery. Having been bedridden for an extended period, with only social media, TV and the news as his connection to the outside world, Voss began to digest the current social trends involving nationalism, tribalism, polarization, division, and violence - all of which weighed heavy on his mind. He put pen to paper, and by 2018, he had written his 3rd album, ‘Come Along With Me’ and was released on March 20th, 2020.

 

Recent highlights include SCMA awards for ‘Roots Artist of the year’ and ‘Music video of the year’ (for ‘Some People.’) Adjusting to the new reality of the pandemic, JJ pivoted from touring and has embraced Live stream shows to continue to reach his audience and grow his fan base. Whatever the future may hold, JJ will adapt and thrive.

Festival of Trees kicks-off the holiday season in the friendly city, online, on Saturday, November 21st.  The Festival of Trees Live Auction From Your Living Room supports healthcare at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital. Host your own Festival of Trees Gala with your closest friends.

 

2020 has been a year of transition and change.  While helping people have access to the best medical equipment in Canada will not change, Festival of Trees is adapting to meet everyone’s new normal and virtual lifestyle.

 

While Festival of Trees is implementing dynamic changes, the spirit and fun of Festival stay the same.  Festival will feature an online live auction, a signature silent auction and feature the best of Moose Jaw designed to create a magical holiday event. 

 

Festival of Trees auction will be streamed on Saturday, November 21st at 7:00 p.m. on the Moose Jaw Health Foundation’s website. There is no cost to watch the auction, but if you want to bid, you have to sign-up in advance.


 
Money raised at the all-new Festival of Trees will go towards the Foundation’s campaign to bring the next generation of urology equipment to our community.  Medical teams performed over 400 urology procedures last year at our hospital.  Every dollar raised at Festival will stay in Moose Jaw to help patients needing a urological surgical procedure.

 

Connect, Unite, and Give at the 2020 Festival of Trees Live Auction from Your Living Room.

A holiday-themed evening with Saskatchewan’s own award winning singer-songwriter-pianist Jeffery Straker. Bring a friend, wear an 'ugly' Christmas sweater, and get into the festive spirit. Classic and contemporary Christmas songs, story-telling and maybe even an audience sing-along (pending Covid-restrictions). Sold-out 3 years running at the Casino Regina Show Lounge – back by popular demand.

 

"Some of my favourite memories of Christmas times when I was growing up are about the music. People gathered around the piano, singing carols late into the evening with a glass of cheer. I hope to bring a bit of that musical Christmas magic to the stage with this concert." - Jeffery Straker
