INTERSTELLAR RODEO BRINGS ALL STARS TO 2015 LINEUP. KATHLEEN EDWARDS, LUKE DOUCET AND JOEL PLASKETT WILL TAKE THE STAGE TOGETHER ON SUNDAY, JULY 26.

Interstellar Rodeo Edmonton unveils an unexpected addition to the 2015 lineup, with Kathleen Edwards, Luke Doucet and Joel Plaskett joining the bill together as this year’s Interstellar All Stars.

Kathleen Edwards made headlines when she quit the music business in February 2014 to start a coffee shop in Ottawa. You won’t see Edwards’ name on many festival posters this summer, so it is truly exciting that she will come to Interstellar Rodeo’s stage.

To add to the sense of occasion, Six Shooter’s own guitar slinging space cowboy Luke Doucet will join the All Star bill. With Whitehorse blazing up the radio charts and playing to huge crowds, Doucet’s solo gigs are also a rare event. Doucet’s appearance strengthens one of the through-lines of this year’s All Stars, the chance to see a genuine once in a lifetime performance.

Joel Plaskett comes to the All Stars as one of the most respected, celebrated and decorated musicians in this country. His live shows set a gold standard of awesomeness. Inventive, entertaining and hugely talented, Plaskett really is in a class by himself.

The All Stars feature presents the best songwriters on stage together, performing each other’s songs with a top-notch rocking backing band. Neither workshop nor supergroup, the All Stars finds the sweet spot that lets the music (and the magic) happen.

The #iRodeoYEG All Stars will perform on Sunday, July 26. Weekend passes and single day tickets are still available.

EDMONTON INTERSTELLAR INTERLUDES LINEUP SHOWS BIG LOVE TO ALBERTA ARTISTS.


Interstellar Rodeo makes plenty of space for local and Alberta talent with this year’s Interludes lineup, a collection of super-talented songwriters and exciting performers that run the gamut of experience from seasoned vet to fresh-faced newcomer. Interstellar Rodeo is proud to shine the light on such a strong and diverse lineup culled exclusively from Canada’s Western provinces, and to position homegrown artists alongside the international stars on the bill. More than half of this year’s Interlude artists hail from Alberta, making 2015 the strongest hometown showing yet on the Interstellar stage.
 

UPCOMING #iRODEOYEG NEWS:
Single day tickets will be available as of Thursday, April 30 @ 8am MT via www.interstellarrodeo.com.
For a limited time, single day tickets will be 20% off.

Interstellar Rodeo Edmonton’s 2015 Interludes:

• Clinton St. John (Calgary)
• Colleen Brown (Edmonton)
• Colter Wall (Saskatchewan)
• Jay Nowicki (Winnipeg)
• JJ Shiplett (Calgary)
• Joe Nolan (Edmonton)
• Lucette (Edmonton)
• Mike Mcdonald (Edmonton)
• Ryan Boldt (Saskatchewan)
 

INTERSTELLAR RODEO EDMONTON INTERLUDE ARTIST BIOS:

Clinton St. John (AB)
Multi-instrumentalist Clinton St. John, is a Calgary-based singer-songwriter originally from Delburne, AB. His songs have strong narrative and dream-like qualities, finding influences in folk, blues, country, rock and psychedelic music. He released his latest full-length album, The Minor Arkhana, in September 2014.

Colleen Brown (AB)
“The talents of this Edmonton-based musician shine like a beacon,” writes The Globe and Mail. With a focus on themes of love, fate and psychic retooling, the small-town prairie fireball and hometown darling Colleen Brown just released a new album, called Direction, and with it, takes her work down new and exciting paths.

JJ Shiplett (AB)
A songwriter in every situation and a dedicated player, JJ Shiplett’s passion for quality and sincerity is only matched by his goal to get everyone dancing. JJ’s approach to songcraft showcases heartfelt moments full of life experience, right alongside bursts of boisterous feel-good rock and roll.

Joe Nolan (AB)
From theramin tremors to raw howls, Joe Nolan’s range of expression reaches extremes. He delivers bandaged fragility and raw rage with equal impact. His most recent album, the WCMA-nominated Tornado, showcases Joe’s lyrical style – intense, evocative and gripping.

Lucette (AB)
It is obvious to all those who listen that Lucette’s raw, mellifluous and mysterious sound is as much old soul as it is ingénue. Lucette most recently toured the US in the fall 2014 with classic country sensation Sturgill Simpson. Her debut album, Black Is The Color, is out now.

Mike McDonald (AB)
Jr. Gone Wild’s legendary frontman, “cowpunk” pioneer and proud Dirt City music scenester, Mike McDonald is the real deal. In 2014, McDonald released his debut live solo album, Live At The Blue Chair Café. Unadorned by the electric chaos of a band and massive volume, Mike’s solo show is edgy folk, peppered with story and commentary, often hilarious.

Jay Nowicki (MB)
The Perpetrators front man, founding member and proud Winnipegger Jay Nowicki is rated one of Canada’s tastiest guitar players. Nowicki and The Perpetrators have cornered the market on tight, raw and intense blues, winning WCMA awards and Juno nominations along the way. The Perps’ most recent album, released in 2013, is called “Stick ‘Em Up.”

Colter Wall (SK)
Rugged and dark, the talented Saskatchewan-bred newcomer Colter Wall is poised to release his debut album, the evocatively and aptly titled “Imaginary Appalachia” in June 2015. Wall finds his inspiration in the rich tradition of Delta Blues and performs in true DIY, lo-fi fashion, with a tambourine duct-taped to his kick drum.

Ryan Boldt (SK)
With “a presence far larger than his towering, scarecrow-like frame suggests,” (Vice) The Deep Dark Woods’ front man Ryan Boldt strikes out into a new wilderness alone. Boldt’s first solo album, Broadside Ballads, wraps traditional songs in Boldt’s signature haunting, folk-rock approach.
