Adam Van Wielingen Tribute
Adam Van Wielingen was a singer-songwriter and music production engineer from Calgary, Canada. Throughout his life Adam touched the lives of many with his gentle heart, beautiful presence, and creative spirit Adam lived with great depth of spiritual sensitivity and awareness, clearly evidenced in his lyrics. Adam's legacy lives on through his music, for which we are forever grateful.
Adam Van Wielingen's album, The Mountain, was initially released May 12, 2017 in the presence of Adam's family and friends at the National Music Centre in Calgary, Canada. Sadly, Adam passed away three months before the planned album release party, and May 12 evolved into a deeply touching ceremony celebrating Adam's life. To honour Adam and his songs, a group of friends and family joined together to perform material from the Mountain, as well as Adam's back catalogue.
Due to the overwhelming positive response to the May 12 performance, and a desire to connect Adam's album with a larger audience, a public CD release is now planned for Aug 24, 2017 at Festival Hall.
