Spotlight on Calgary Folk Music Festival

CKUA Summer

A folkfest like no other, Calgary Folk Music Festival, happening July 27-30, offers a full slate of groundbreaking musical icons, upstart songwriters, and instrumentalists.

Be sure to tune in to The Upload, Thursday, July 20 when host Kate Stevens speaks with performers Aquakultre and The Lovebullies.

Aquakultre is a Canadian soul and R&B musical project from Halifax, Nova Scotia, whose core member is singer and rapper Lance Sampson. They are most noted for their album Legacy, which was a longlisted nominee for the 2020 Polaris Music Prize.

The Lovebullies combine vintage-pop-rock with a high octane, visually dynamic stage show; they’re a favourite of the Calgary music scene.

Kate will also preview many of the other artists being featured at this year’s festival. Tune in to hear a full program of great music.
