Welcome

Celeigh Cardinal (pronounced Kay-lee):

A Celeigh Cardinal performance is a profound, soulful triumph of songs that blend roots, folk, rock and pop. Her voice at once evokes a gentleness and control which can turn to raucous, gut wrenching, twisted, turn-yourself-inside-out blues within a single phrase.  She is a passionate performer who can draw an emotional response with her deliberate words and rich contralto voice. This spring Celeigh has been nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award for Indigenous Artist of the Year, a CBC Indigenous Music Award for best pop album and has also received a whopping 8 Edmonton Music Awards nominations for her recently released album, “Everything and Nothing at all”. She will be playing multiple Canadian Festivals this summer and will be touring in Scandinavia in the fall. She is currently based out of Edmonton, Alberta and continues to perform alongside her duo, trio as well as with her band.

AND NUMBER 2:
 

2 sets of heartfelt and endearing music starting with Reuben Anderson and followed by Celeigh Cardinal each with very special guests accompanying them. 

Just $15 cover! Spots are limited, so those who first send email money transfers to reubenjanderson@gmail.com will be guaranteed spots. Use the security question "Where is the concert?" and the password "House" please and thank you! Or you can put $15 cold hard cash in the hands of either artist before it fills up, but the etransfer is the safe bet and YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS ONE!!! BYOB or enjoy a cold and refreshing glass of water on the house. You are welcome anytime after 6:00pm, but before 7:00pm as the music will starting promptly! 

Reuben Anderson is a singer/songwriter and all round creative individual. Expect to be a part of the show by singing along to your favourite tv theme or drawing a picture during Reuben's instrumental track "Bedwritten". Expect to hear an extremely broad range of music that is unexpectedly cohesive. Hear his music and/or see stuff at www.reubenandersonmusic.com. 

Celeigh Cardinal is a prairie girl through and through. Blues and jazz roots dig deep through her heartfelt songs. This sultry singer/songwriter is easily one of the finest vocalists to hail from the Peace Country. Her music is as inspired by the wind that whistles through the evergreen trees as it is heartbreak/joy of love and pain/euphoria of vulnerability. Hear her music and/or see stuff at www.celeighcardinal.com 

This will no doubt be a magical evening that will leave you feeling inspired and warm. 

If you want any more info regarding these performances, send me an email Celeighcardinal@yahoo.com and we can talk the night away!

October, already? 

Good Morning all! been a crazy month so far for me! Had some great times at Big Al's Tuesday night Jam, Sideliners Pub, the Buckingham for Acimowin's fundrive, and the Royal Mayfair season "Supersession".  We also went up to Grande Prairie for Tanya Sedore's Annual Young at Art Fundraiser too! Great, Awesome times!

GO FUND ME.  

Sooooooooooooooooooo................. 

Dylan decided to start a Go Fund Me account on my behalf. It was gonna be a secret. Then three days in he started to feel like a failure after only my mother and Dana Wylie had given a donation so he decided to tell me.  Initially i felt ill. I loath asking people for anything, as most people do.  Then i remember Stew Kirkwood telling me to watch the Ted Talk about the art of asking, or something to that affect, and i did watch it. And i suppose now is the time, even though i feel rather rushed and nervous, to ask. So here is a link to the campaign.... Celeigh Cardinal's Album
If you're looking for a reason? well, we do have some perks for donations. All donors will get credit in the album notes... and the rest is laid out on the campaign page. 

This year i lost my voice, and was scared shitless that i was going to never sing again.  This is a big step for me. Any contribution will help. 
Thanks for everything all! 
<3 
 

Whats to come? 

For a start, its a new website.  
It has been a year of change for me, and this all part of it. 
I have recently began performing, sparingly, again.  Since the discovery of a nodule on one of my vocal chords in early February, I have taken a long hiatus from performing. 
This has been a year of forced introspection, and I'm still in the thick of it.  
I do, however, feel a flood of songs ready to burst out of me from all the trials that have been presented to me, and i suppose that is what it is all about. 
So, good and bad, everything is balanced. 
for now. 
Cheers all!
