Little Concerts Presents Two Featured Acts!
Opening Act: Robert Rooke
Robert Rooke’s admiration for the blues, rock-n-roll, and country music aided his growth as a guitarist, as well as a bassist, and ultimately led him to the craft of songwriting. His debut EP The Road pays homage to the roots that inspired its creation and signifies the beginning of his journey as an artist. Growing up in Edmonton, Alberta, Robert developed a palpable passion for soulful music, made tangible when he picked up a guitar for the first time.
Closing Act: Emily Triggs
She is a bred-in-the-bones roots musician. In her debut album When Guinevere Went Under, she takes you on a journey through influences and experiences that have shaped her folk/roots sound. Her philosophy is simple: all of life’s experiences, for better or worse, can be mined for the raw materials of a good song – hence her mantra of “no regrets”. She is an observer of the world around us.
Emily shares stories through her songs with an endearing simplicity and emotional depth. With a pure and true vocal, complementing a solid base of undeniably roots music composition, Emily engages the listener. Her music grips the heart and elevates the soul. Her songs are double edged, unapologetic and a unique sound in the genre of folk/roots.
Emily has been singing festivals, clubs and coffee houses as a solo performer and as a member of The House Doctors, The Fallen Angel Band, June Gloom and Magnolia Buckskin.
