Dione Taylor

Blues

In partnership with Canmore Folk Music Festival

Canmore welcomes Dione back after her debut Canmore Folk Festival appearance. Continuing on with her unmistakable ‘Prairie Blues’ sound, Dione’s music is a mixture of Roots, Blues and Americana. She brings us on an intriguing and magical, thematic journey through song with stories of Mystical Truths (“Water”), Race Inequality, (“Working”), Hiraeth or Homesickness (“Where I Belong”), Women’s Rights (“Down the Bloodline”), Heartbreak (“One More Shot”), Omnipresent Energy (“Spirit”), Injustice (“How Many Times”), Nigredo or Transformation (“Darkness”), Freedom (“Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around”) and Perseverance (“Running”). Dione’s sharply honed songwriting chops shine through on original songs featuring both intellectual depth and emotional eloquence.

Opening Act - Seth Anderson

Seth Anderson has spent his time on earth on a journey; in search of his truth, purpose, and an understanding of the world around him and his place in it. His songwriting offers an honest view of life from a unique perspective that has stemmed from years of traveling, moving from town to town, city to city, highway to highway; the high peaks, the low valleys, and all the spaces in between.

Through all of this, there maintains one common thread- a bellow for love and hope. Few artists have such an intense emotional connection to their craft and this is where he shines. His delivery is genuine, yet at times ferocious with both conviction and vulnerability, comparative to artists such as John Moreland, Chuck Ragan, and Frank Turner.

Seth’s musical intensity crawls up your backbone making the hairs stand on your neck while adding goosebumps on your skin. His evolution began in a small town punk scene where he grew up in Hartland, New Brunswick. It was then followed by years of a blue-collar approach to his career, putting in thousands of miles while taking his music to audiences all over the world.
