We have announced one artist so far for the 2017 Calgary Folk Fest, July 27 - 30.
Coeur de Pirate
Thundering drums, strings taking flight, choruses like tidal waves; Béatrice Martin's third album is the biggest and boldest vision yet as Coeur de pirate. The atmospherics and production are wilder, colder and lusher. Even when she boldly expands her horizons and sonic experiments, she never hides her pirate heart. The artist credited for bringing la chanson française to a new generation dares to map the highs and intense lows of her experiences moving through heartbreak, discovering new sources of joy (motherhood), fighting for love, coming out the other side. In generously articulating the full spectrum of her feelings, Martin shows us a story of surviving and thriving.
