Ayla Brook is among Edmonton’s best songwriters. His newest effort Ayla Brook and The Soundmen, is a rocking prairie roots outfit, that has been delighting audiences with their foot stomping sound for a couple of years now.

 

Originally from Lily Plain, Saskatchewan, Brook was a founding member of the fondly remembered, Edmonton based band AA Soundsystem.

 

After a couple of records they disbanded. Solo releases followed and now armed with great material, new and old, Ayla Brook and The Soundmen are ready to rock the beer tent at the Strathearn Art Walk.

Formerly of the Nowhere Blossoms, Dave Jackson (better known in Strathearn as the owner of The Wired Cup and a painter) returns to the stage on Sept. 10, playing guitar and singing original songs as part of the musical lineup in the beer tent.

 

While he may not be thrilled at the prospect of performing again after such a long absence from the stage, Jackson is a true community supporter and recognizes a chance to lend his substantial talents to a worthy community endeavour.

 

Joe Nolan’s career is in full flight. A recent European tour, a heralded 2015 album produced by the legendary Colin Linden and now Strathearn Art Walk. We are pleased to be able to host this talented young man before he outgrows us all.

Mbira Renaissance play traditional Zimbabwean music using contemporary instruments. A great groove provided by West African rhythms and beautiful, vocal harmonies make for a unique-to-Edmonton sound which will be sure to get patrons at the Strathearn Art Walk on their feet.

R&B singer Karimah is one of Edmonton’s most nimble performers. Vocalist, songwriter, musician - Karimah can do it all. At the Strathearn Art Walk you’ll find her performing acoustically with her guitar player Gray Ford.
