  • Excellent show coming up on Wednesday, Oct. 18th at the International Beer Haus.  Folk roots singer and songwriter Oh Susanna along with Ryan Langlois.  Here is some background on Oh Susanna from her website:

    This Canadian songstress has a voice that can pierce a heart of stone. Her superbly crafted songs often tell stories of troubled souls who rebel against their circumstances to attain a quiet dignity. These are tales of longing and love, of small town joys and pains, of our simple feelings and strong passions. These are tales that look into our beautifully flawed human hearts. 

    Performing since 1996, Oh Susanna has released eight critically acclaimed albums.  She is the recipient of a Genie Award for Best Original Song and a Canadian Folk Music Award for English Songwriter of the Year.  She has also been nominated for two Juno Awards each for Best Roots and Traditional Album of the Year, as well as two Canadian Folk Music Awards for Best Solo Performer and for Best Contemporary Singer of the Year.  This year she released A Girl in Teen City, an album of songs set in 1980s Vancouver starring a teenage punk girl named Suzie.  The album has been met with high critical acclaim and has earned three Canadian Folk Music Award nominations: English Songwriter of the Year, Contemporary Singer of the Year, and Producer of the Year.  Oh Susanna lives in Toronto with her husband and son.

    As mentioned, also taking the stage Oct. 18th is Ryan Langlois.  We talked to Ryan earlier this summer and shot an interview with him as he sang the title track from his new album.

    “…Light and Dark is the title track of his new EP and it fits like a beautiful harmony.  To those who appreciate music and musicians, an artist like Red Deer’s Ryan Langlois is truly intriguing.  He’s tasted the sweetness of success with a fabulous band called the Boom Chucka Boys.  But that didn’t last because Langlois was heading in a different direction.  Instead he took a road that lead him home to his family in Red Deer and a musical rediscovery.

    Ryan’s about to reveal his new direction to his fans.  And in all likelihood he’s about to create a lot of new fans with “Light and Dark”.  The EP will be released Thursday June 22 on iTunes and if you give it a listen there’s a good chance you’re going to be singing that line “Light and dark.  Ain’t that far apart…” and you might start wondering just how far apart Ryan Langlois is from a massive breakthrough.

    Check out the song and the story behind it right here and enjoy Ryan Langlois while he’s still one of us.. ’cause he’s “not far apart” from lighting it up…”

    Should be a great night.
