Friday

If we were to describe wild mountain with one word, it would be “real”. The music. The food. The venue. It's all… Real. Even when you find it hard to believe that it is, that you're in some special piece of magic, we promise, it's real. Join us at the Original Crossroads and see it for yourself.

Braden Gates

Braden Gates is a contradiction. His clothes, instrumentation, and songwriting style rings of a much older man, but his performances and passion show his true, youthful age. Seamlessly moving between fiddle and guitar, his songs tell tales of adventures in Edmonton and nights on Whyte Ave. We think he’ll fit right in on the Wild Mountain stage.

Corin Raymond

Corin Raymond is a troubadour with robust veracity. His songs are covered by Dustin Bentall, The Good Lovelies, The Strumbellas, The Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer, and a far-flung community of roots musicians and enthusiasts. Raymond's latest recording, Hobo Jungle Fever Dreams, was nominated for a JUNO award. It is a great recording... dark and hypnotic. Raymond is a story teller with great commitment to his songs.

Dana Wylie

Dana Wylie's crystal clear voice will cut straight through to your heart, and just to make it a fair deal, her songs will give you a direct route into hers.

Sam Tudor

What do you get when you cross the sounds and styles of the big city with the peace and serenity of the wild? What about if you take that contradiction and throw in a love of historic visions of the future and dystopian possibilities yet to be realized? Sam Tudor. He’s like Wild Mountain… Not quite any one thing, something you have to experience to understand.
