The third annual Doppelsingers unites some of Calgary’s coolest original artists with other Alberta songwriters. They blow the lid wide open, creating fresh approaches to familiar and not-so-familiar tunes. Indie artists ‘cover’ funk tunes, hip-hop artists take a stab at country music and pop artists try their hand at folk. Previous artists include Axis of Conversation, JJ Shiplett, Copperhead, Hello Moth, the 6L6s, Polyjesters, T Buckley, SAVK, Astral Swans and Raleigh (and more) who performed songs written by artists from across the musical spectrum: the Dudes, James Keelaghan, Kris Demeanor, Tom Phillips, Jr. Gone Wild, the Cape May, Feist, Field Day, Anne Loree, Corb Lund, Jr. Gone Wild, the Stampeders and even Nickelback!
