  • The 2019 Canada Winter Games are underway and the city is alive with activity.  You can feel a buzz on major roadways, near any of the games venues, and on the sidewalks and streets downtown.  It’s time to enjoy the experience, take in the sport and culture.. make memories with your loved ones.

    It certainly is a good time to be grateful and that’s the way Games Chair Lyn Radford is feeling.  In the days leading up to the games she reached out to her community to offer thanks to a short list of citizens.  Well… at least that ‘was’ a short list of citizens… until the final day of Radford’s “grateful campaign”.    For her final thank you, Lyn turned her attention to the thousands of citizens who are volunteering in all the roles needed to make sure these games are a ‘smooth’ success.

    These people have all stepped up to the plate in a major way and Lyn wants to recognize their impact.  If you’re looking for someone to say thank you to for this event and for the many legacy infrastructure projects that will enhance Central Alberta’s offering to future citizens..  say Thank You… to someone in a volunteer uniform.

    Thank you from Todayville as well!   Now over to Lyn:

    Day 1 of personal thanks for 2019 Canada Winter Games – Red Deer journey- is to the 5000 + volunteers that believe in their community and are sharing their time and skills to make this event a life shaping experience for athletes and spectators .

    From the bottom of my heart ❤️ I send so much love to all of you for stepping up! I know you will show CANADA the class act Red Deer, Central Alberta and Alberta is!

    Brett Kissel and Frannie Klein kick off the 52 North Music and Cultural Festival Sat. Feb. 16

  • Opening night of the 52 North Concert Series features some serious country music with Alberta’s own Brett Kissel and Manitoba’s Frannie Klein.

     

    Brett Kissel seemingly sprung out of nowhere onto Canada’s country music scene – an apparent overnight sensation who now occupies the lofty space as one of the country’s leading country music stars.
    But there’s always another story – the one that saw a young kid from Flatbush writing songs from a young age, ducking in and out of Legion Halls, shopping centres, and downtown clubs in the middle of  severe Edmonton winter nights.  He was not old enough to get into them through the front doors.
    Always an acoustic guitar case in hand, cowboy hat firmly in place, and the look of calm determination of someone who knew at an early age that this was what they were meant to do.  Polite, energetic, and talented.  Brett’s paid his dues and has what it takes to be an ‘overnight sensation’.

    Here’s some background from Brett’s website:

    Over the past few years, the country crooner has received an armful of Canadian Country Music Association Awards, (including two straight wins for Male Artist of the Year and the coveted Fans’ Choice). Brett was the recipient of the Allan Slaight Honor from Canada’s Walk of Fame (previously presented to Drake, Shawn Mendes and The Weeknd), the Breakthrough Artist of the Year winner at the JUNO Awards, and was recognized as the International Artist of the Year at the Worldwide Radio Summit in Hollywood, California (an honour bestowed upon Ed Sheeran and Adele in the last two years respectively).

    ‘Frannie Klein is bringing real country music back.’

    Frannie Klein’s bio describes her like this:

    Authentic, badass, and genuine – she is the real deal. Growing up on Lake Manitoba and raised on a cattle ranch, she has been immersed in the country lifestyle since birth. Forever embracing her aboriginal heritage, she often spends time back in Ebb & Flow First Nation , and credits much of her musical passion, fierce spirit, and attitude to her time spent there.

    Frannie Klein and Great Canadian Entertainment President Scott Ord started collaborating in the summer of 2015, working together to create the best possible debut project for her. The album was written by Frannie during a handful of trips down to Nashville over the last two years. Together, with a band of Winnipeg’s finest musicians, they have begun to produce a project that is fun, timeless, and classic. 

    Brett Kissel and Frannie Klein are firing up the mainstage dome at the Gary W. Harris Celebration Plaza on Saturday, February 16. You definitely don’t want to miss this!

    6 p.m. Dome opens
    7:30 p.m. Frannie Klein
