The first thing that hits you is the voice. Samantha Martin’s is a force of nature, one of those voices that grabs you by the throat while causing the hairs on the back of your neck to tingle. The likes of her friend Serena Ryder and Janis Joplin come to mind as reference points. 2018 has all the signs of being the break out year for Samantha Martin and Delta Sugar. While Martin is a powerhouse unto herself, the vocal alchemy of Delta Sugar is not the work of a single talent. In combination with what she likes to term her “co-vocalists,” Sherie Marshall and newest full time member Mwansa Mwansa, the vocal blend Delta Sugar produces is pure, unadulterated gospel-tinged, neuron-tingling magic where the sum is even richer than the already soul-melting parts. Stage North is ready to have some fun with this, their final show of the season. Come early for food and the cash bar. Tickets online or at several Slave Lake businesses. $35.00 for adults in advance.
The Debaters Live is the comedy stage show where comics go toe to toe in a battle of laughs and logic and the audience picks the winner. After a sold out show last year, The Debaters is back with this special Christmas themed event that features host Steve Patterson and two of his favourite comics performing stand-up, and two hilarious debates focused on the holiday season. Some language may be inappropriate for younger audiences.
