Folk singer adds Nelson stop on Rocky Road Tour

Finding your way can often be a rocky road. Some stumble through life, while others blaze trails.

Brett Wildeman has been slowly but steadily crafting his raw folk sound over the past few years while performing in intimate venues throughout BC and Alberta.

His Rocky Road Tour is an ode to the fossil fuel dependent path Canada’s Federal and Provincial Government is leading us down, as the Joint Review Panel has given the green light to contentious Northern Gateway Pipeline. This is a time where Canadians must dig in or let the carbon emissions levy break.

The year 2013 was one of success and artistic growth for Wildeman, characterized by more than 40 tour dates, the release of Mother Earth, and a 700 km carbon-neutral cycle-tour of coastal British Columbia.

In 2014, Wildeman has turned his focus to the release of a forthcoming EP and carbon neutral touring efforts.

Wildeman is ecstatic to be exploring the Kootenay-Rockies while sharing his music with crowds of all ages during his seven-stop tour, which includes a stop in Nelson at John Ward Fine Coffee on Monday, March 10 at 7 p.m.
