More Northern Alberta Northern Alberta

Want to feel super Canadian? Travel further north than most humans ever get by exploring northern Alberta. Get your bearings in the wilderness with a guided backcountry ATV tour. Even the sky isn’t the limit in northern Alberta. It’s home to the planet’s largest dark-sky preserve and a festival celebrating the Aurora Borealis. ● Backcountry: Holy solitude. Find yourself enveloped by rugged nature and you might be able to imagine what fur traders and First Nations hunters felt here many years ago. ● Camping: Just because you’re up north doesn’t mean you can’t camp on a white sand beach. Why hello, Lesser Slave Lake.

Lion Bear Fox

Spruce Grove, Alberta
2018-03-03 To 2018-03-03 MST

One part folk, one part rock, with a pinch of gospel and a dash of growl, Vancouver's Lion Bear Fox boasts acoustic guitars bookended by buzzing electrics and screaming keys. All of this, anchored by rich percussion and thrilling harmonies. With a name that is derived from a connection with their 'spirit animals' this trio has a sound that harkens back to an era when the song was paramount. Described as 'a musical force of nature' that's sure to 'be around for a lifetime', Christopher Arruda, Cory Woodward, and Ryan McMahon were known initially for their solo careers but they joined forces in 2012 and soon after released their debut Lion Bear Fox CD. They've been touring relentlessly since then, making appearances at Canadian Music Week, the Mission Folk Festival, and The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, and sharing stages with artists like Tom Wilson, Good For Grapes, Elliot Brood, and Kim Mitchell.
