Local Entertainment Westerner Day’s Music Line Up for Wednesday Night is a MUST SEE Published 7 months ago on 7 months ago By Duane Rolheiser Westerner Day’s Music Line Up for Wednesday is… UNBELIEVABLE! JESS MOSKALUKE An internationally celebrated artist, Jess Moskaluke (MDM Recordings Inc. / Universal Music Canada) continues to dazzle the country music world with her infectious love of country music that fuels her chart topping hits. Acclaimed as the first female Canadian country solo artist since [her childhood idol] Shania Twain to achieve platinum single status (with her hit track “Cheap Wine and Cigarettes”), in 2016 she has achieved not one, but two consecutive Top 10 hits with her respective singles, “Kiss Me Quiet” and “Take Me Home”. A multiple 2015 JUNO nominee, Moskaluke was also consecutively crowned the 2014, 2015 and 2016 Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA®) Award™ Female Artist of the Year, the first resident of Saskatchewan in the history of the awards to achieve this title. A proud small town girl, when she first posted her music online, no one could have anticipated the bright future that lay ahead. Many years later with her growing fan base, she now has over 19 million views on YouTube to date. As of December 31, 2016, Moskaluke had the #1 Most Played Song (“Take Me Home”) at Canadian Country Radio in 2016 and was the top spun Canadian female artist for the second year in a row. Here’s “Take Me Home.” NICE HORSE Born and raised on the Alberta prairies, Kaley Debra, Katie Marie, Brandi Caroline and Krista Lee are ready to unleash a jacked-up, bush-partying bolt of energy on the country music scene. The band’s first year out of the gate is quickly garnering them a resume any veteran group would kill for. Following on the heels of a management deal with Coalition Music (Our Lady Peace, Tom Cochrane), the girls’ first shows included JUNOFest, an opening slot for the Kentucky Headhunters, and Big Valley Jamboree. Their first EP, produced by Jeff Dalziel (Washboard Union, Dan Davidson, Brett Kissel) and Bob Rock (Bryan Adams, Aerosmith, Joan Jett), is set to release in February 2017 when they hit the road with Tom Cochrane. It’s a country Cinderella story in the making, but one that’s well-earned. Longtime friends and musical allies, joining forces (as horses) seemed long overdue. One strong, smart, powerful girl on her own can start a spark – but four together can create an explosion. That’s a party. That’s a good time. That’s a Nice Horse. Take a look at “Pony Up” the newest video from Nice Horse… this will get you on your horse and over to the Enmax Centrium! HEY ROMEO Whenever Hey Romeo get together to write and record, the result is a reflection of their commitment to their craft, to their fans, and, above all, to each other. Their latest EP, Ride With Me (Royalty Records/Sony Music Canada), is no exception. Ride With Me dwells equally on the hope new relationships inspire and the places where love went wrong. And nowhere is that more evident than on lead single, ‘Pushin’ Up Daisies’ – a rock-fuelled stomp with a bit of aggression in the vein of the Dixie Chicks ‘Goodbye Earl – delivered with a smile and a smirk by lead singer, Stacie Roper. Frankly, Ride With Me represents some of Hey Romeo’s strongest songwriting to date; a set of songs so true to life fans can slip into them and see their own lives, loves and heartaches reflected there on the very first listen. About Hey Romeo: Over 13 years, Hey Romeo have played countless shows on their own and with artists including Sugarland, Darius Rucker, Gord Bamford, Johnny Reid, Alan Jackson, Terri Clark and The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. In 2008, the band was honoured with a Canadian Country Music Award for Top New Talent of the Year. Their 2010 album solidified their reputation with the Top 20 hits ‘Searchin’ For You’ and title track ‘That’s What I Am.’ Both That’s What I Am and 2012’s Twist Of Fate landed the band CCMA Awards for Group or Duo of the Year in 2011 and 2012, and ‘Hello Patio,’ the lead single from their 2014 EP, I Got This, won the 2014 Alberta Country Music Award (ACMA) for Song of the Year. Here’s “That’s What I Am”. Related Topics:Hey RomeoJess MoskalukeNice Horse Up Next Street Performers Converging On Red Deer! Don't Miss It’s Your Rock n’ Roll Duty!

Community CAFF – A mother and daughter face reality of living with Type 1 Diabetes Published 7 days ago on 7 days ago By Lloyd Lewis Central Alberta Film Festival is coming up Feb. 23-25 and offers up some really interesting films, including SWEET YOYO. One balmy afternoon in Toronto, single mom Hannah receives the news that no mother wants to hear: her perfect daughter Jozefin (Yoyo for short) has been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Faced with a new and shocking reality, Hannah and Yoyo must navigate the difficulties of growing up with a serious condition. Yoyo quickly learns the difficulty of having a childhood illness, from her new strict diet to administering daily blood sugar tests at school. While Yoyo bravely comes to terms with her new reality, Hannah struggles with the financial and emotional burden of having a child with Type 1 Diabetes. Directed and co-written by director Mark Cira, SWEET YOYO is a semi-autobiographical short film that details with a mother and daughter facing the new reality of living with Type 1 Diabetes. You can catch SWEET YOYO as it makes its World Premiere at the Central Alberta Film Festival as part of the Drama series. Saturday, February 24 5:20 PM Carnival Cinemas Mark will be in attendance at the premiere. Read more stories from Todayville.com.

Not long ago the future of the home was very much in doubt. But interested parties came together with a plan. Not only did they save the home… they transformed it into a unique public building which will play a significant role for decades to come. The building is now called The Wadey Centre. The model of collaboration behind this successful project caught the attention of the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association. Hoping to spur other towns to consider similar projects, the AUMA awarded Blackfalds with the prestigious Municipal Sustainability in Action Award just a few months after the Wadey Centre opened. Click to see the story behind the Wadey Centre Project and enjoy a few glimpses of the 101 year-old heritage home which is enjoying new life as a Visitor Information Centre, and offices for the Blackfalds Chamber of Commerce and the Blackfalds Historical Society. <►>Shelley Winters with her stunt double... and her Stand In from Blackfalds Click here for more information about the Wadey Centre and all things Blackfalds.

This more Event Details On International Mother Language Day, February 21st, the UN's Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and UN agencies, participate in events that promote linguistic and cultural diversity. This day was created to support people who lost their lives trying to protect their mother language. As many as half of the world's 7,000 languages are expected to be extinct by the end of this century; it is estimated that one language dies out every 14 days. The aim of CARE is to celebrate the many languages that are spoken in Red Deer and to encourage people of all ages to learn a new language. To commemorate this day, Central Alberta Refugee Effort is hosting an International Mother Language Day Event at the Collicutt Centre, 3031 – 30 Avenue, Red Deer on February 24th from 11am – 2pm. Free Admission. Families are invited to attend and learn words in other languages; play fun word games; discover the many cultures in Red Deer, and win prizes! We will have 16 booths representing many different languages and cultures, hosted by CARE volunteers from many different countries. Participants will be able to play interactive games, answer trivia questions, test their memory and linguistic skills, and above all be introduced to the joy of learning languages in a fun way.
