About the Event

For the past 10 years or so, a bunch of Alberta singer-songwriters have gotten together to celebrate and pay tribute to songwriting legend Townes Van Zandt on the day of his passing... New Years Day. What began at the Wunderbar with a handful of artists and a small, hungover audience, eventually grew into a performance and celebration that Edmontonians came to look forward to every year.

When the Wunderbar shut down, the folks at the Black Dog graciously took over as host to the festivities. I wanted to keep the tradition going and figured the only way to do so was with a Live Stream Concert. Twelve artists from Edmonton and Calgary have agreed to help me keep this thing going and join me in paying tribute to the master.

I've decided to make this a fundraiser event with all proceeds going to The Black Dog Freehouse. The Black Dog is a cornerstone of this city and they have supported musicians in Edmonton for decades. Bars and music venues are hurting right now and we all wanted to do something to help these fine folks out.

Admission (if that's what you call it) is free but we will be taking donations during the stream. Every $10 donation will enter your name into a huge prize bundle featuring LPs, CDs, shirts, beer and a whole lot more. I will post more info on the prize pack as well as a picture after I get all of the sweet merch together.

Donations can be made at anytime by sending an e-transfer (put your full name in the message section) to: We will be accepting donations/draw prize entries until 9:00pm on January 1. We will announce the prize winner at 12 noon on Saturday January 2...the day after the show.
